texas ranches for sale

Size:

240 acres - Ford Farms

Location:

Located between the DFW Metroplex and Lubbock, TX in Foard County, 5 miles northwest of Crowell, Texas.

Terrain:

The Ford Farms is a multi-use property for both the sportsmen and/or cattle rancher. The 240 acres is composed primarily of open native grass pastures and cultivated farmland. The well-drained soil is excellent for winter grazing of cattle and late summer sorghum crops that waves of dove swarm to along their flyway migration. Nice elevation changes are found throughout the farm and provide many panoramic vistas of the rolling plains. Most of the cropland and pastures have been terraced to take full advantage of the precious rainfall that occurs in this area. A wet weather pond in the west pasture is a great draw for wildlife and several other potential pond locations could be easily impounded along the many drainage areas around the farm. The heaviest cover is found along the western boundary of the property and the brush consists primarily of mesquite, hackberry, and eastern red cedar. This is an excellent location to set up a feeding station and harvest trophy whitetail or huge wild boar that calls this area of Foard County home. Ford Farms has electrical and water utilities on both sides of County Road 1039. A farmhouse that would be perfect for a hunter’s cabin is located on the east side and a set of cattle pens with barn and windmill are located in the west pasture. The perimeter fencing is good with additional cross fencing to allow for rotational grazing. Ford Farms is an ideal North Texas acreage for anyone looking for a multiuse property with both agricultural and outdoor opportunities!
