The Pulaski County Tract combines ready-to-use pasture land and improvements with excellent timber and hunting opportunities. The property is in central Georgia in the heart of agricultural country. A variety of row crops are grown here including peanuts, corn, cotton, vegetables, and wheat. The property is within 10 miles of the Ocmulgee River, which is known for its great hunting and fishing opportunities. Farms and timberlands surround the property. The town of Hawkinsville is three miles from the property, Macon, Georgia, is less than an hour’s drive and Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport is two hours away.
The Pulaski County Tract has been used for timber production for at least the last 30 years. The current owners developed the tract for pasture, timber growth and hunting. The upland area boundaries and cross fence areas were cleared and encompass approximately 561 acres. The pine timber was thinned and large openings were created to allow sunlight penetration for grass establishment. The openings were planted in TifQuik bahiagrass and then fertilized. Outside the fenced area is a beautiful old growth hardwood bottom on Big Creek, which flows into the Ocmulgee River. Wildlife is abundant throughout the farm with excellent deer and turkey and an occasional bear spotted in the area. There is a pond on the north end with bass and bream and the duck hunting is worthwhile in the area. There is an excellent internal road system with 19 gates for access to and between all pastures and hardwood bottomland.
A timber inventory was done on the property in 2013. There is a stand of mainly pine sawtimber in the fenced areas with several hardwood bottoms running through. These areas have been thinned to facilitate grass growth. The hardwood bottom has not been cut in many years and, therefore, there is substantial timber value in these areas. A central corral and catch pen area was developed for the unloading and handling of cattle, and for central feeding and water. There are two, four-inch wells with a 900 gallon storage tank. There is also a 3,160 square foot steel building with overhangs and large equipment doors on all sides.
