A log cabin, a hunting lodge, productive farmland, pine plantations and mature low ground hardwoods. You just gotta see this place to believe it!
Occoneechee Farms is 1407+- acres of hunting land farm land and timber land for sale in Northampton County North Carolina. Located on the banks of the Roanoke River near Jackson NC, its not just an incredible investment property it is an experience in the “Neck Life”. Once you spend some quality time in Occoneechee Neck, which is a body of fertile land that is basically surrounded by a long, sweeping bend in the Roanoke River, you’ll understand why many visitors to The Neck find it so difficult to leave. It’s alluring, welcoming, laid-back, secluded, captivating and wild. There’s only one way in and one way out which is both relaxing and refreshing to anyone forced to operate in this hectic world we live in today. You can escape it all at Occoneechee Farms. Here you’ll experience unlimited potential for monster bucks and lots of ducks. Throw in the incredible turkey population and trophy black bears and you have what I believe to be the most awesome hunting property available in North Carolina today. There’s approximately 1.3 miles of frontage on the Roanoke River and almost three hundred acres of productive farmland. The remaining acreage is in merchantable and pre-merchantable pine plantations and mature hardwoods. There are two structures on the property, a cozy, custom-built 3 bedroom/3 bath log home overlooking the farm and a rustic hunting lodge which sleeps 14 comfortably. Recreationally, there’s over 8 miles of well-maintained roads and trails accessing the over 30 deer stands and acres of food plots. Occoneechee Farms is abounding with waterfowl habitat including a 27 acre lake, a 10 acre duck impoundment and multiple flooded green timber areas. With extensive waterfowl management the potential for this property to explode in duck numbers is amazing. I believe it could quite possibly be turned into the premier waterfowl hunting property on the entire Roanoke River drainage. Although the duck hunting is good here now there are plenty of ways to make it even better. Here’s an excerpt from a blog written by a buddy of mine after spending a few days chasing ducks with me in The Neck. “You know you’re in for a good hunt when your partner starts asking how long before shooting time….every two or three minutes. By the time I said, “it’s time”, it was on! Now like I said earlier, I’ve spent a lot of time duck hunting in the timber and I can, in all sincerity, say I have rarely witnessed the amount of ducks trying to get into that hole…” You can read the blog…click here.
The well-rounded sportsman will greatly appreciate the incredible fishing opportunities here. You have pan fishing and bass fishing in the lake and, at times, epic striped bass, hickory shad and catfish fishing in the river. When the stripers (rockfish) are making their annual spawning run to Weldon, which is just upriver from the farm, folks come from near and far to experience an angling adventure like none other.
For those interested in a cash return on your investment there are multiple income streams available at Occoneechee Farms including the annual farm lease, a hunting lease or the operation of an outfitting/commercial hunting business which was successfully done here for a number of years. There is a substantial timber value on the tract now and carefully planned successional timber harvests will provide income into perpetuity. There are also opportunities for corporate, family or church retreats or ministry events as well as trail rides for horses or ATV’s. Showing by appointment only to qualified buyers.
