Entire Farm Description:
Welcome to Serengeti Farms! This super rare and massive land holding is located in one of the most sought-after locations in all of the eastern part of the state. The farm consists of rolling hills with numerous hilltops that have stunning views of the river hills and surrounding countryside. There are approx 354 acres of open ground that is comprised of 138 acres of tillable fields, with the remaining balance in hay, pasture, brush, and food plots. The layout is absolutely incredible, with ridge top fields, blocks of timber, wooded draws, small bottom fields, etc. The access is unprecedented - road frontage on every side, including Hwy F on the north end and Hwy W on the east side. There are 9 lakes and ponds, with the biggest body of water measuring out at 7 acres, established by the Clarence Cannon Watershed Project. Because of the location, size, terrain, access, and habitat, there are so many different possible uses for this property. The farm has the potential to be an absolute world class deer and turkey hunting farm with the proper management. It also would make for a fantastic development property with tons of homesites that offer breathtaking views for miles. This farm is one of the most manicured and meticulously well-cared for farms I have seen in a long time. Even the most discerning land buyer will be impressed. Excellent location - about an hour from STL Lambert Airport, just a few minutes east of Hwy 61, and right in between Eolia and Elsberry. This property is the “Crown Jewel” of the area, and must be seen to be appreciated! Too many details to list. To schedule a private showing, call Aaron Bennett today!
