Description: Endless opportunities on this farm.  This farm offers 230.04+/- total acres of which 197.58+/- acres are FSA Tillable acres.  Currently some of the farm is enrolled in CRP Programs with the remainder being in row crop production.  There is the potential to farm all open acres upon expiration of the CRP contracts.  Farm lays good and shows well.  Farm has had some terrace and tile work performed.  In addition to its day job, this farm plays well too.  Excellent hunting and recreation with abundant deer and turkey. Bordered on the West by the East Fork of the One Hundred and Two River and on the Southern part of the farm is the Hog Branch of the One Hundred and Two River, this farm is a natural funnel for whitetail deer.  Big timber on the Northwest, Crp on the side hill and Row Crop in the Creek Bottoms are a perfect combination.  Make no mistake however, this farm is a producer.  This is a highly tillable farm that will be an income earner for generations to come.  This farm has been well cared for and is ready to continue providing for another generation.
