Sandies Farm - Wharton County, Louise, TX

The Sandies Farm is one of the strongest rice farms on the Coastal Prairies, with enough flexibility and water to additionally grow corn, cotton, and milo. Farms of this size and quality do not come available often. The water, infrastructure, land work, climate, and soils combine to make this one of the premier agricultural properties in the region. This area of the Central Flyway is known for its premier waterfowl hunting.


Only ±90 miles southwest of Houston, situated midway between Louise and Ganado, the farm is approximately 6 miles north of US 59 in Wharton County, with a small percentage located in Jackson County. FM 710 provides excellent blacktop access back to the highway. A good network of county roads through and around the farm provides easy field access with equipment.


USDA data indicates 3,142 acres of cropland, with 1,563 acres of rice base, plus an additional 543 acres of wheat base. Over the last 4 years, ±1,295 acres have been farmed in rice, with ±1,257 acres farmed in a mix of cotton, corn, and milo. The rice base yield is excellent at just under 90.7 cwt./acre.


There are 5 active irrigation wells on the farm. Farmer estimates for three of the wells are 3,000 gpm, one well at 2,500 gpm, and one well at 1,800 gpm. Additionally, there are several relift pumps located around the system to save on pumping. The engines on the wells are the property of the farmers, and do not convey with the sale.

topography, rangeland & habitat

Soils are generally light, ranging from loamy topsoils over clay to fine sandy loam over sandy clay loam, with the majority of the cultivated acres consisting of Nada Cieno, Edna Loam, and Edna Cieno soils per USDA maps. Typical of the Gulf Coastal Plains, this farm is generally flat and sloping to the south. This farm has been in rice production and ongoing leveling for years.

While most of the land is under cultivation or farming infrastructure (roads and canals), there is a beautiful ±265-acre corner of the farm in pasture and live oaks. In this wooded area is an ±8 acre shallow flat duck pond loaded with grass and seed.


In addition to waterfowl, dove, deer, hogs, and varmints from the neighboring woodland areas offer additional recreational opportunities. The deer are readily observable in the early mornings and evenings, stealing a little of this year’s crops.


The headquarters compound includes several enclosed and 3-sided barns totaling approximately 60,000 SF of covered/enclosed storage area, plus simple farm housing for labor. There is a very nice mobile home away from the headquarters used by the owner as his hunting camp.
