Sandy Creek Farm
Sandy Creek Ranch is located just 10 miles east of Interstate 35, 65 miles south of OKC and 150 miles north of Dallas. This 245 acre ranch is ideal for the discerning buyer looking for a highly productive ranch. Located along 2000 feet of Cherokee Sandy Creek and with 2500 feet of a large, unnamed tributary running through it, this ranch boasts a large block of fertile creek bottom soils. Ninety percent, or 220 acres, of the ranch consists of open pastures with scattered trees and beautiful, clean hay meadows. Two, fifty acre meadows are ideal for stockpiling forage for the cattle. One has Midland 99 Bermuda grass standing almost knee deep and provides ideal warm season forage. The other meadow has been tilled and planted in triticale for cool season grazing. The remainder of the property consists of open, gently sloping pastures blanketed with a mixture of native Bermuda and Fescue with scattered shade trees. Sandy Creek Ranch has benefited from a steward owner who has consistently sprayed for weeds, leaving a thick, consistent growth of grass across the pastures.
The property has excellent fencing, a great set of working pens and sensible cross fencing to allow easy rotational grazing. As with most of Oklahoma, wild hogs can cause great damage to pastures. The owners of Sandy Creek Ranch have minimized this threat by installing stretches of seven strands of barb wire fencing. Two half-acre ponds offer plenty of drinking water for cattle.
A peaceful building site is located on the backside of a ridge on the eastern side of the property. This spot would provide an ideal view of the property and yield some great sunsets in the evening. In addition, a stand of massive Burr Oaks lining the edge of the creek should lure wildlife out for you to enjoy watching from the porch of your dream home.
Sandy Creek Ranch is what a truly productive ranch looks like. A thick, deep blanket of Bermuda grass. A high percentage of bottom land with fertile, dark soils.
