$6,213,200 Sold
  • Acreage: 1775 Acres
  • Type: Land


The Votaw View Farm is a combination, rice, soybean, and recreational farm located along Bayou De View in Poinsett and Jackson Counties in Northeastern Arkansas.   It is situated in a desirable farming and waterfowl hunting area with good farm markets and farmers.   There are several nearby rice and grain elevators, chemical and fertilizer outlets, and equipment/parts dealers.  The farm and surrounding area are also well known for highly productive waterfowl hunting.    

The property is situated in both western Poinsett and eastern Jackson County, Arkansas.    It is in three tracts all just west of the town of Fisher and US Highway 49.   The Fisher Tract and the Old Forked Slough Tract are accessed from Bayou Road which is a county gravel road.  The Three Mile Creek Tract is accessed by Alexis Lane which is the county gravel road along the Jackson and Poinsett County lines.  The farm is approximately 1.5-hour drive from Memphis, a 2-hour drive from Little Rock and a 45-minute drive from Jonesboro. 

There are 1,775.52 total acres made up of 434.7 acres or 25% precision leveled cropland, 616.84 acres or 35% row water irrigated, 32.13 acres or 1% non irrigated, and 694.05 acres or 39% timber.  There is a 47-acre reservoir and 7 irrigation wells along with multiple risers and several thousand feet of underground pipe. The lower lying timber and farm land along Bayou De View floods during the winter providing excellent duck hunting.

The soils are 19% Class II Hillman and Dundee silt loams. Most of the remaining cropland soils are Class III Jackport Silty Clay loams.  The wooded land consists primarily of Tichnor frequently flooded soils.  These are silty clay soils well suited for rice and soybeans. 

$6,213,000 or $3,500 per gross acre.

A portion of the farm (435 acres) has been precision leveled to grade.  The remaining cropland is mostly irrigated using contour levees.   There are 75 acres that are not irrigated.  The drainage is to the south through Three Mile Creek, Old Forked Slough and Bayou De View which border and bisect the farm.  There is early seasonal spring flooding in the southern portion of the farm.  Rice is primary crop grown here.

The current tenant will operate the property in 2018.  Details available upon request.
