Oak Lane Ranch
Oak Lane Ranch is a 225-acre ranch located in Pontotoc County, Oklahoma near the towns of Stratford and Ada, Oklahoma just 70 miles southeast of Oklahoma City and 150 miles to the Dallas Ft. Worth Metro area.
Oak Lane Ranch is a productive combination cattle and recreational ranch that is being parceled off of a larger ranch. The future entry of the ranch will be from the road frontage on the south boundary into the southern 60-acre pasture portion of the ranch. This area is currently divided into three pastures and will need a western fence installed to serve as a boundary between what is being sold and the seller's remaining property. This part of the ranch has three nice ponds and a small, wooded drainage but otherwise is all open pasture.
From the southern 60 acres, you can move north through an oak lined lane the emerges into an open pasture encompassed by hardwoods. The current owners have cleared much of the western perimeter creating pockets, lanes, and bedding areas for the resident whitetail deer that inhabit the ranch. It is not uncommon to jump 10-15 does when driving through this part of the ranch. There are areas of thick blackberry bush and browse that could be managed or improved, depending on your goals. This northern 65 acres is also home to the largest of the 5 ponds, and at just over 2 acres in size, we can imagine hours of enjoyment spent bass fishing or relaxing on its sandy shoreline.
Speaking of water, this ranch has an abundance of it. The ranch itself sits atop the Gerty Sands Aquifer. This aquifer stretches over 109 sq miles and stores approximately 224,000 acre-feet of water. Landowners living over this aquifer will hit water at about 40 feet. If you're interested in exploring water rights above what transfers with the surface for things such as irrigation or commercial use, the process is simple, and The Land Doctors are happy to help you navigate the application.
Most of the soils on this ranch are sandy loam in nature but are held in place with a strong stand of Bermuda, Native and Love grasses. The part of the ranch being sold carries about 40 cow/calf pairs year-round in addition to a few horses. The combination of a variety of established forages and exceptional water make this ranch an exceptional place to run cattle with enough woods left to enjoy some great hunting.
