Denver, Colo. (PRWEB) July 14, 2012
Investor interest in farmland is continuing unabated, driven by agriculture’s strong fundamentals. However, very few – if any – available properties offer the combination of size, location, and development potential that characterize this opportunity in the Eastern U.S.
“Seldom is a property of this scale and this potential available for purchase,” said Bart Miller, managing broker of United Country – Mason & Morse Ranch Company. “The Hyde County Farm is one of the largest contiguous tracts of farmland offered in the Eastern United States, and offers excellent investment potential.”
Located in Hyde County, these 14,600 acres constitute the largest contiguous tract of agricultural land for sale in North Carolina. A former timber farm, it is now ready for conversion to row crops. Approximately 3,000 acres are currently being cleared and will be ready for agriculture use in the 2013 crop year. The fields immediately adjacent to this property are highly productive farmland with crops such as corn, soybeans, cotton, wheat and grain sorghum.
This property lies close to multiple markets available for grain, including Rose Acre Farms in Pantego, Lake Phelps Grains in Swan Quarter and Creswell, and Riverside Grains in Washington – all located within a 50-mile radius. This area of North Carolina generally has a better basis than many other parts of the country – corn basis is usually 40 to 60 cents better than in the Midwest.
Hyde County is the home to many large farm operators, and an investor will be able to find several potential renters for the farm who are both financially sound and sophisticated producers.
