You must see the farm to really appreciate all that it offers. The terrain varies from level to gently rolling, and the sandy-loam soil is great for growing hay and raising cows. Several stocked ponds, in all the right places, are fed by natural springs and remain full even during the dry months. The ponds will not only provide countless memories of fishing on Sunday afternoons for a new owner, they also will serve as a consistent and steady water source for livestock in the event that the well or county water is not available; spring-fed ponds are highly preferred over dug ponds for livestock. The constant circulation of water from the springs and creeks help bring in minerals into the water and also prevents the water from becoming stagnant.

The pastures feature Bahia grass, which is hardy, greens early, and continues to grow late into fall producing excellent forage and hay for your livestock. The 26 acre Coastal Bermuda hay field is well-established and very well-maintained. Coastal Bermuda is a preferred grass for hay production due to its potential for high yields on good sites, nutrition quality for the livestock, and its ability to be stored for longer periods of time once it is bailed and properly stored.

Perimeter fences and cross-fences are in very good shape and ready for livestock. This cattle ranch for sale possesses natural features that make it an all-star set up for a cow-calf operation, but would also serve well as a smaller scale commercial stocker operation. There are many reasons this is an ideal farm for a cow-calf operation or other livestock brood rearing operation, there are old oaks disbursed across the tract providing shade and shelter in the hot summer months for young nursing calves and pregnant cows, water everywhere you look, good grass, cross fencing, and a catch pen suitable for working the herd. The way the pastureland is cross fenced and divided will allow a new owner to rotationally graze the cattle, keeping the pressure on the grass and soil compaction to a minimum, allowing the maximum carrying capacity of the rangeland to be met.

In the winter months, these different traps or cross fenced pastures could easily be no-till drilled or over seeded with rye-grass, oats, wheat, triticale, or any other cool season annual grass that will provide excellent weight gain for the next years calf crop. This can be planted over the dormant Bahia pastures without any negative effects.

There are four barns on the property that each serve a valuable purpose. The first barn an older wooden framed barn directly behind the home, this barn has served the current owners as a utility barn or shop, it is enclosed without doors on the front and rear and adjoins the catch pen used to gather the cattle. This barn is in a perfect spot to be utilized as a cattle barn to store feed, medicine, horse tack, and other tools of the trade that would be used on a daily basis on the ranch. The second barn lies on the south side of the largest pond on the property, this enclosed horse barn features horse stalls, loads of rough cut lumber on the walls, power, water, and offers a new owner a multitude of potential uses. The third & fourth barns are 40’x60′ pole barns that are dedicated hay barns. Hay barns are essential to storing high quality hay for wintering cattle. All of the barns are in working condition with lots of utility.

The 3,300 sq. ft. farmhouse has three bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an office, and a bonus room upstairs. Originally constructed in 1969, several additions and renovations over the years, most notably a large family room and a sunroom, have created a uniquely spacious home. Water comes from one of two deep wells on the property. Mature pecan trees surround the home and a new metal roof was installed in 2020. It has a half-mile of frontage on paved County Road 420 and another quarter mile of dirt road frontage on County Road 426. The Barndominium features a cement slab and metal bones and lies on the south side of the property, far enough away from the farmhouse to create a real sense of privacy. It has one bedroom, a kitchen, small living area, and a utility room. One half of the Barndominium is an enclosed workshop.

The ranch also provides outstanding opportunities to hunt. There are approximately 40 acres of woods with Hays Creek flowing through the middle of the property. The vegetation varies from old oak hammocks to a thick creek bottom, perfect for secure bedding areas and for keeping the big bucks close. You can expect to flush quail along the fence rows, doves in the pastures, and ducks in the ponds. In sum, this hunting ranch provides excellent habitat for deer, turkey, and other native Alabama wildlife.

Located in the south Alabama countryside, Hays Creek Ranch is less than two hours from the Gulf coast beaches and less than four hours from Atlanta.
