For the first time in over sixty years, the Artesian Waters Ranch is available for purchase. This +/-2,310 acre ranch is one of the finest examples of agricultural real estate in all of Florida. Located on the eastern side of the "Florida Ridge," this ranch enjoys a consistent and constant underground flow of crystal clear water, moving down the ridge and through the land. This water is delivered through a system of canals, controlled by culverts that allow the rancher to raise and lower the water levels at will. Also as a result of the location and topography, this ranch is over 60% Tequesta muck soils, known for high organics, and capable of growing lush, nutritious grasses. In addition, over 300 acres are in planted hemarthia grass, with the balance in thick bahia grass. Along with the ranch's phenomenal cattle production and farming capabilities, the property essentially functions as a game sanctuary. Very minimal hunting over the decades, along with regularly filled feeders, have resulted in uncommon numbers of quality whitetail deer, along with other typical Florida species such as Osceola turkey, wild hog, quail, ducks, and more. On the northern end of the property sits a quaint cabin home with electric and well/septic system. A beautiful outdoor fire and cooking pit sits adjacent to a fish cleaning station and storage shed. Cow pens, an equipment barn, and horse stalls are additional structures on the ranch. Do not miss the opportunity to own this extremely productive and well-maintained ranch!
