JAG Farm & Ranch - Victoria County, Port Lavaca, TX

Key Attributes

The excellent waterfowl hunting, saltwater fishing, hogs, deer, and dove, combined with rich blackland rowcrop ground and good pastures make the JAG Farm & Ranch an opportunity to own a fantastic combination recreational property/working farm and ranch with unique diversity and income potential.  Unobstructed views of the flats and Lavaca Bay and over 3.5 miles of combined bay and creek frontage enhance the value and long term development prospects.

Location:      The ranch is located approximately 20 miles southeast of Victoria, and approximately 5.5 miles north of Port Lavaca, on the northeast end of Lavaca Bay, with paved FM road access to the entry.  The Calhoun County Airport is minutes away (5,004’ asphalt runway), and the Victoria Regional Airport is also very convenient for larger planes. 

Habitat:          The +739 acre farmland portion of the property is entirely Laewest Clay designated as prime farmland per the USDA.  This is a rich, black soil, generally level with an elevation of 29-30’.  The farm has 723.61 base acres per USDA, and has been planted in corn, cotton, milo, and soybeans through the years.  The 10 year average yields for this very productive farm are strong, and available upon request.

The non-cultivated portion of the ranch consists of an estimated +327 acres of upland pastures and brush, and +257 acres of tidal flats.  The pastures are a nice mix of clean, open grasslands and areas of dense brush for game habitat.  Mesquites and huisache are predominant brush species, but there are also more southerly browse plants such as lime prickly ash present on the ranch.  Hackberry and cedar elm are the predominant trees, along with some nice live oaks.  The tidal flats are largely grazeable wintertime pasture, and feature two main ponds of +3.5 and +2.5 acres, along with numerous smaller potholes that are great duck hunting spots.                 

Placedo Creek flows along the ranch’s border for +3.5 miles, emptying into Lavaca Bay at the ranch’s northeastern corner, with the shoreline of the bay forming part of the ranch’s border.

Wildlife:         There is a great combination of game on this property.  The ponds and potholes provide excellent duck hunting opportunities.  Placedo Creek is an area known to local sportsmen as a hotspot for speckled trout and redfish.  Much of the creek can be fished from the bank and accessed by pickup or ATV, and there is a public boat ramp just down the shoreline from the ranch. 

Deer, hogs, and varmints frequent the upland pastures, and dove hunting can be excellent.

Water:            Three windmills provide water for livestock & game in the pastures, and there is an electric well located at the implement barns.

Improvements:  The farm portion of the property includes implement barns and a pair of old farm houses used for storage and a farm office.

Minerals:       Surface only is being conveyed in this sale. 

History:         Owned by the same family for over 100 years, this farm and ranch was originally purchased by early 1900’s Calhoun County Judge Willett Wilson.    

Price: Asking $4,392,360 or $3,320/acre.
