Bivens Bayou  **SOLD**

648 Acres
Land in St. Frances County, Arkansas

Bivens Bayou is a 648 acre property located approximately 25 minutes from downtown Memphis in St. Frances County, Arkansas. Highway 70 is just north of the property, and the Parkin exit of 1-40 is approximately 2 miles west (see attached maps). Approximately 50% of Bivens Bayou is precision leveled rice ground which is commercially farmed and provides substantial cash flow. The remaining acreage, which has been enrolled in the WRP, is a combination of cypress bayous and timber. The two cypress bayous (Blackfish Bayou and Bivens Bayou) which flow through the property are lined with mature hardwoods and provide approximately 90 acres of wetland habitat. Areas adjoining these bayous qualify for a conservation program which provides additional cash flow and wildlife habitat. Wells, levees, pipes, and water control structures have been installed which allow the property to hold additional water during duck season. The flooded fields contain nine pits and two blinds. Electric power is on site. Bivens Bayou currently provides opportunities for fishing and hunting (ducks, geese, deer, wild quail, dove, squirrel). Duck hunting has occurred in the flooded fields and along cypress trees in the bayous. Several prominent duck clubs (Blackfish, Dunavant Farms, Henry Wedell's Section 12, and the Robinson Farm) either adjoin or are in the immediate vicinity of Bivens Bayou. A large 12 point buck was killed last year, and future conservation programs should improve deer habitat. Farming, conservation programs, and duck hunting provide revenue potential for this property.
