JENKINS COUNTY, GALocation:
Southland Farm is located 5 miles south of Millen, GA 25 miles northeast of Statesboro, 47 miles south of Augusta, GA and 75 miles northwest of Savannah, GA on a county paved road just off Ga. Hwy. 17.
This farm consists of 685 acres total, 450 acres cultivated, with 200 acres under center-pivot irrigation fed by a 10 inch well. Also an additional 32 is and open suitable for pasture, three ponds comprise a total of 10 acres and the balance of the property is in timberland and hardwood drains. Several of the timbered hardwood drain areas are suitable for building new ponds.
The property is divided by paved road, with other paved frontage along the eastern portion and county dirt road frontage along the northwestern portion of the property. Soils are good overall for row crop or timber production and the topography is gently rolling throughout the farm.
In a heightened land market with crop land in the focus this property makes sense from an investment standpoint. A very good farm lease for 2011 is in place, property taxes are reasonable and management is minimal. The farm is home to several species of wildlife including deer, turkey and with management for quail or ducks they could be plentiful as well.
