Coming to the Market – The View!

This property will be on the market very soon.  I located this view many years ago and the current owner has really made it nice.  55 acres…only $99,000.  It’s looking out at the Talladega National Forest.  90 minutes from Birmingham.  You can drive right through the property to this view.  You can surf the Internet sitting right in that spot.  There is power available if you need such things here.  I think a tent and campfire suit it well, but I can envision a great cabin there.  Private.  Private.  Accessible.  The owner has even got a well about 20 yards from this spot.  There is a great spring head on the property too.  Turkeys….everywhere.  Saw some today.   I remember many years ago taking my truck, parking it there, and working from that spot.  It does not get any better.  I’ve had friends camp there by permission.  Some of you reading this will recognize it.  It can be yours.  Call me.  256-252-9239

Farming Alabama & Georgia

In the last several weeks, I have had the opportunity to view many cattle, poultry, and row crop operations in Alabama and Georgia.  These operations are as varied as you could ever imagine.  However, the people are somewhat of a constant.  Poultry farmers in South Alabama sound exactly like poultry farmers in North Georgia.  Cattlemen everywhere are having the same conversation…record prices on cattle, and “Where do we go from here?”.  Row crop farmers invariably center their conversations around the lack of, or more than ample amount of moisture from the sky.  Extreme North Georgia farms are a very different landscape than extreme South Alabama, but the highly independent people found in both places are all very much the same.  All of the places are rural and dotted with church buildings.  All of the people share a deep love of country, a healthy distrust of government, and a disdain for our current administration…and all of that squares perfectly together in my mind. 

Our farmers are the best in the world.  On the collective, there is no more powerful, yet humble group of people on the planet.  They know what it takes to make it, and make it they will.  

Thomas Jefferson envisioned our republic as a nation of farmers…where everyone was intimately tied to the land.  Genesis chapter two tells us exactly how tied to the land we are.  God made us from the dust of the earth, and then he placed his crowning creation in a beautiful garden, and gave us dominion over it.  Farming is noble.  It shows faith in the Creator like few other things.  When you see the beauty of a cotton field in it’s fall glory, you see a master architect.  Thank you Lord for giving me the opportunity to live and work with farmers in your beautiful creation.

A couple of years ago we noticed a gap in the marketing of poultry farms in Alabama.  There were many agents who happened to have a poultry farm listed for sale, but few that seemed to meet the real needs of poultry farm buyers and sellers.  We began to develop a solution to this, as the partnership between AlaLandCo and SonUp Real Estate grew.  About a year ago, we were able to bring AlabamaPoultry.com online, and give poultry farmers a quality service.  Randall Upchurch with SonUp Real Estate partnered with me and AlaLandCo  in developing this business, and we continue to work on improvements to the marketing of poultry farms.  Randall was raised on a poultry farm in Lineville, Alabama.  He gets it.  He knows the commitment, the issues, and the benefits of running a poultry farm.  Randall is a great salesman.  Having been employed in the livestock feed industry before becoming one of the leading agents in Alabama, Randall has the connections to get things done.  By combining his knowledge, experience, and salesmanship with our marketing program at AlaLandCo and agri-business knowledge and connections, we have built a marketing venue specifically tailored to the needs of poultry growers.

AlabamaPoultry.com is growing.  We currently have many farms available throughout the state of Alabama.  If you have an interest in buying or selling a poultry farm, contact us.  We will be happy to consult with you.  We will be glad to help guide you through the process.  Buying and Selling a poultry farm is not the same as other real estate.  There are so many opportunities for plans to run afoul of reality.  We’ve worked through many of those issues, and that experience is invaluable in bringing together a successful poultry farm closing.

We also have many tracts of land available that would make excellent poultry farm sites.  Many of the integrators  are expanding, and building new farms.  Let us help you improve your future.  Visit the site now.

If you are an agent with a poultry farm listing, or know someone who is looking to buy or sell a poultry farm, please contact us.  We have referral and co-op programs available to help you turn a good prospect into a successful sale.

Country Acres – Big Hardwoods

County Road FrontageOne of the most requested attributes of country property is for it to have “big” hardwoods.  I have found that request to be very relative to what the enquirer is accustomed too.  For someone from rural Alabama or Georgia, big hardwoods better be sized for good furniture making.  For someone from Florida, big hardwoods are anything that is not a pine tree and you can walk under.  I realize this is a generalization bordering on a stereotype, but this is anecdotal evidence that these attributes are relative.  The same goes for “mountainous” or “hilly” or “rural”.    Nevertheless, us land brokers have to use a one-size-fits-all mentality when describing the properties we are marketing.  Our descriptions are invariably jaded by our own relativity.

The title of this article is Country Acres – Big Hardwoods.  I do not intend to disappoint.  For fun I will describe the tracts with buyer locale in mind.  You might even notice some of my Southern Anglash coming through too!  All of these land tracts are currently for sale.

Great Cattle Market & Farms For Sale

DCIM100MEDIAThe cattle business has never been any better than it is right now, and all indications are that prices will continue to improve, and maintain record highs for the foreseeable future.   Brood cow numbers continue to decline, and demand for beef both internationally and domestically continues to increase.  Heading into the fall bull sale season, cattlemen are expecting to see record-setting averages for top-end breeding bulls.

All of this is creating demand for quality pastureland and farms to produce these cattle.  We have been hard at work bringing several good farms to market.  We are currently working with buyers from Florida to South Dakota who are interested in Alabama and Georgia cattle farm and ranch properties.  Here are some that we currently have available:

Closed Sales in Chilton & Shelby County Today

New LogoWhen you have more than one closing in a day, it’s a good day in the land business.  When you are able to close out 6 different properties for 5 different counties in two weeks, you know you have a program that works.  It’s really good to have happy buyers and sellers.  Today we closed one sale in Chilton County Alabama and one in Shelby County Alabama.  At the closing in Clanton today, I witnessed a buyer eager to learn about rare plants on a property that a seller had propagated there 30+ years ago.  The land business connects you to history in a way that few other things can.  Few days go by that I do not see something spectacular in nature or significant historically.  Few days go by that you don’t learn something about the way things used to be, or how different people in different places accomplish the same goals…differently.  

Muleshoe Bend Outfitters offered by Robert King with AlaLandCo

New LogoAlaLandCo is proud to be offering for sale Muleshoe Bend Outfitters, a 1255+/- acre hunting preserve located on the banks of the Tallapoosa River in Chambers County Alabama. Muleshoe Bend Outfitters consists of 720+/- deeded acres, 5+ miles of frontage on the Tallapoosa River, 535+/- leased acres, a lodge, 2 bunkhouses, over 40 hunting stand locations, orchards, vineyards, BIG timber, and all the wildlife that comes with it. With 30+ years of intensive professional management of wildlife and timber, this represents an opportunity that is unparallelled in the market today.

muleshoebend (1)“The Bend” as it is called by it’s owner and steward, Dr. John Crook, is one of the finest hunting properties in the South. The property has been developed with a keen eye toward sustainability, both in the wildlife and the economic aspects of the timber growing on the property. The opportunity to continue building on this foundation is one seldom seen. Most “hunting plantations” have the benefit of a few years of management when these come to market. Dr. Crook has dedicated his time and efforts to this property for over 30 years. Thousands of mast-bearing trees have been established on this property. Miles and miles of trails have been put in. Countless hours have been spent perfecting the property to optimize it’s wildlife potential and economic return.

Muleshoe Bend Outfitters will be a turn-key operation, ready-to-go for it’s new owner. Offered alongside the real estate are the equipment used to maintain the property, vast files of information regarding property management, and the website, http://www.MuleShoeBendOutfitters.com. Muleshoe has been, and can be run as a pay-for-hunt operation. The website would be invaluable there. If a private hunting preserve or a family compound suits your tastes better, then the site could be useful as a blog.

More information about this recreational and INVESTMENT opportunity can be found by visiting our website, www.AlaLandCo.com or by calling Robert King at 256-252-9239.
