Improvements: This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to come in and make this property their own. There are minimal improvements including a 36+/- acre spring-fed lake, a barn, a nice set of working pens, new cross-fencing and new perimeter fencing. Also, with road frontage on three sides, and multiple home sites over looking the lake, this property is setup well for a homestead, weekend retreat or future investment.
Trees, grass, forbs: This area of Morris County is known for its deep, sandy loam soils which are conducive to heavy grazing, hay production, and healthy timber stands. This property features a 24+/- acre Coastal Bermuda hay meadow that is strictly used for hay production. The rest of the ranch is currently being grazed, lightly, and consists of Common Bermuda, Coastal Bermuda and Bahia grasses. The ranch has approx. 196+/- acres of productive pastures that can easily be grazed or turned into hay production. The ranch’s landscape drains well making access convenient from all four entrances. Found within the stands of mature timber scattered across the ranch are native forbs and browse that are highly attractive to deer and other wildlife. Groves of large mature oak trees can be found on each hillside. Other tree cover consists of black gum, sweet gum, river birch, elm, willow, and some pine.
Water: The property has a deep, productive, spring-fed lake, approx. 36.5+/- acres in size as well as a creek, and 4 other stock ponds scattered across the ranch. The property is also located well within the Carrizo Wilcox aquifer and the Queen City aquifer making drinking water very accessible from a well. Access to the community water supply is also available along the west entrance.
Topography: Rolling to sloped terrain gives way to an impressive ~95 feet of elevation change and provides scenic views from multiple hilltops across the ranch. Several beautiful home sites can be found over looking the scenic lake where both sunrise and sunset can be enjoyed.
Wildlife and fisheries: Twin Forks Ranch boasts an incredible fishery in the 36-acre lake. The lake was built just over 5 years ago and has been managed for optimal fishing. The lake is stocked with Florida Bass, crappie, coppernose bluegill, catfish, as well as a variety of forage baitfish. The owners have taken great care to ensure the lake maintains a healthy carrying capacity as the fishery has developed over the years. Second only to fishing, the lake also supports good numbers of resident and wintering waterfowl and doves. In years past, the owners have had good success duck hunting the flooded timber on the main lake. Deer can also be found on the property as there are a healthy amount in this part of the county. Varmints and other wildlife also frequent the ranch.
