Historic Dairy Farm on the Bluffs of the Apalachicola River

Historic Dairy Farm on the Bluffs of the Apalachicola River

This 78 +/- acre turnkey minifarm is a once-in-a-generation chance to own the historic Brown’s Dairy property. Newly listed, the farm is located on the scenic bluffs of the Apalachicola River in Chattahoochee, Florida. From the entrance at the historic dairy barn, dating back to the early 1900’s, visitors are treated to a breathtaking ride across the pastured bluff ringed by natural pine, pecan, and oaks – an ideal new homesite. The journey continues down the hill and along Mosquito Creek, where you’ll find a wide and clear, perpetual sand-bottomed creek that feeds into the river. Following the leisurely curves of the creek you will pass through clean, open natural hardwood and pine hammocks and then back up the hill to well-built and kept equipment barns with everything you’ll need maintain your land. Ultimately, you arrive at the clean and solidly built 3BR/2BA house that sits at the second entrance to the land. All-in-all, this is the most complete mini-farm offering on the market in North Florida today.

For many years this Florida land for sale was Brown’s Dairy, a prominent local dairy serving area residents, medical facilities, and military establishments. Documents preserved by the current owner tell of a profitable working farm with well-bred Jersey cows. Approximately 24 acres of the property are at high elevations, not subject to occasional flooding. These acres are made up of rolling pasture dotted with pecan trees, majestic oaks, and big natural pine trees that once provided shade for cattle and farmer. The current owner has kept horses on this part of the property before, and they would be excellent for any pets once again, such as livestock, cattle, goats or horses.

The bluff, which is out-of-view from the road, offers plenty of privacy and would also make a perfect site for a new home. The remainder of the property is in clean and open hardwood and pine areas along Mosquito Creek, along with another pasture. These acres will occasionally flood, but the majority of the time are dry and accessible – perfect for hiking, horseback riding, ATVs, and hunting. The property has 3,320 feet of frontage along the creek as it winds its way through the property, providing ample opportunity for fishing (bream, bass, and catfish make their way up the creek from the river), wildlife viewing (a multitude of bird species, otters, deer and more), and kayaking/canoeing/swimming out to the Apalachicola River.

Improvements:

  • Historic 44×24 dairy barn,
  • Two recently built 50×30 metal barns (one with a concrete floor, one with a dirt floor, two horse stalls & chicken coop)
  • 1,568 sq. ft. 3BR/2BA house

Included in the purchase of the property are several large pieces of equipment useful for maintaining the land. There’s everything you could ever want to keep the farm running!

This area of Chattahoochee, Florida, is known for its unique geography – almost mountainous terrain- very different than the rest of the state. Due to the particular geographic features, the ecology of the area is more like parts of North Georgia or Alabama than typical Florida flatwoods or coastal plain. The town itself is quiet, but nice, with several parks and small restaurants. The property is located just 35 minutes from the Capital Circle NW exit on I-10 in Tallahassee. It is an hour and a half from the white-sand beaches and entertainment of Panama City. Lake Seminole, a 37,500 acre lake, is a local favorite for trophy bass fishing, boating and duck hunting, and is literally 5 minutes away with boat ramps and camping just across the state line in Georgia.

The opportunity to own a property as picturesque as this one rarely presents itself. Owner financing is available.
