Flint River Farms is a farm and timber property for sale that has productive soils, abundant road frontage, mature timber, and pine plantations, along with pond sites and abundant subsurface water for potential irrigation.
The property is located in the community of Garden Valley, approximately halfway between Oglethorpe/Montezuma and Reynolds, Georgia. The surrounding properties are productive farms with some residential developments.
The property has approximately 4,000' of frontage on Georgia Highway 128, which is its western boundary, and Georgia Highway 127, which is its northern boundary. Mona Springs Road, a county-maintained dirt road, is the eastern boundary.
There are two entrances to the property and the agricultural fields from Highway 127. Access is also possible from Highway 128 and Mona Springs Road, but there are currently no defined entrances from these roads.
The internal road system is good and allows access to all parts of the property.
Boundaries are well defined by the roads on three sides of the property. The southern boundary is an agricultural field.
Flint River Farm has the benefit of 4,000' of paved road frontage, with an additional 1,320' of dirt road frontage. The open fields are relatively level with above average Dothan, Fuqua and Orangeburg Sandy Loam soils. It has the potential to be a productive farm with either row crops, pasture or orchards. If its primary use is for agriculture, some of the hardwood areas could be clear cut and converted to open land, although some areas would require installation of a drain tile system.
But with its extensive road frontage, this property also has the potential to be subdivided into smaller properties and resold for residential use, or as “mini farms.” The soils are mostly well drained and would be suitable for a septic tank, which would be necessary in this rural area. There are already numerous residences in the immediate area, and affordable housing with acreage would certainly attract potential buyers in the nearby communities of Oglethorpe/ Montezuma, Marshallville, and Reynolds.
There is approximately 23 acres of natural upland hardwood that has some significant volumes and market value. There are also 11 acres of 12-year-old pines that border the property. These will be ready for thinning in a few years and will only add to the attractiveness of the property. The 53 acres of cultivated fields could also be easily planted in high-quality pine plantation.
