480 AcresFour M Ranch (CONTRACTED)
The combination of ranchland, farmland and just enough recreation land presents a property that should appeal to several interests. Much of the loamy soil has been farmed at one time and would lend itself to no-till introduction of winter forages, crabgrass and clovers. Too many times introduced forage ranches offer production but no “character”. The Four M Ranch’s rolling hills and multiple ponds presents a pleasant blend of productivity and recreation value.
