DESCRIPTION: If you appreciate the Flint Hills native grasses you will enjoy this pasture. With the short lease this year the native grasses are thick and lush from the regrowth. The pasture is watered by 3 ponds, 2 on the west and one in the SE corner.  The fences are average to below average with 4&5 barb wire and mostly hedge posts with steel mixed in. The improvements consist of pens built with portable panels and wood posts. There is evidence of the old homestead on the north west side with a cellar, windmill, well & older hand pump well and also some remnants of foundations and stone work.

At some point in time, years ago, the northwest corner was farmed. Now the native grasses are getting established and the pasture shows very well.  This is a very clean pasture and as you will see from the aerial video on our website.
