Lavaca Prairie Ranch - Jackson County, Edna, TX

Bird hunters dream on this extensive farmland for sale in northern Jackson County. Approximately 70 acres are in heavy brush and large oaks with the remainder of the property in reclaimed rice fields with some native prairie. Excellent deer, turkey, dove, quail and waterfowl property with potential to return land to farming or cattle ranch.

Dove and quail are numerous and new work is being done with the Texas Quail Initiative to greatly enhance the bird hunting. This is a great chance for a new owner to get in on the ground floor of the development of superior quail hunting so close to Houston at a great price. What makes this property unique for quail is that the top foot of soil is very sandy which creates excellent habitat for quail and limits the number of fire ants on the place.

One of the best areas along the Coastal Prairie for wetland development to create a world class waterfowl hunting property. The Lavaca River flyway brings down a tremendous number of ducks and geese in the fall and this general vicinity is being created into a premier duck hunting area with many projects in existence on neighbors and several new ones being built on neighboring ranches.

Parts of the property are thick brush with large live oaks, water oaks and hackberries. There are great numbers of deer with plenty of hogs and turkey.

All of the water canals and levees from previous rice farming activities still exist and could be easily restored into an excellent rice farm with the addition of an irrigation well. The ground water in the area is excellent and shallow with neighboring wells having capacities of approx. 2,900 gpm. The property would also make an excellent cattle ranch with approximately 45 inches of rain per year and excellent grasses already in place.

The roads are in good condition and there are two solar water wells on the property and one windmill. There is one cattle pen and the perimeter fences are in good condition and the interior fences are in fair condition. There is no acreage in the floodzone.

No minerals are available.

The property is located approximately 12 miles north of Edna off of fm 822.

Note: This property shares a 1.9 mile border with the Maestri Ranch (a 4,954 acre listing we also have) in the event you are looking for additional land.
