Batchelor Farms is an incredible opportunity to own some of the finest hunting property along the famous Black River in Eastern Arkansas. The property is +/-1085 acres and is located in Independence and Jackson County’s and in-between the communities of Cord and Tuckerman along Arkansas HWY 37.  Batchelor Farms has been owned by the Batchelor Family since the late 1860s and has a long history of hunting success. The property offers some of the best Waterfowl Hunting, Whitetail Deer Hunting, and Fishing in the area.  A system of levees, water control structures, moist soil units (MSU’s), wells, and a re-lift pump on Black River allow the owners to manage the water across the property for duck hunting. Vehicle access can get you and your family or friends to a variety of hunting locations or a short boat ride or ATV rides can take you into all the hunting locations. Most of the agricultural fields on Batchelor Farms have been converted into the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) and the planted hardwood trees are thriving and providing amazing food and habitat for ducks, deer, and other game throughout the property. Additionally, other agricultural fields have been developed into native grasses, millet crops, and other dedicated wildlife food plots to provide additional hunting and or rest areas for the property. All areas are very accessible with relative comfort and ease. The Black River conveniently splits the property North and South and provides a historic natural flyway destination for wintering ducks and geese.

The Conservation Reserve Program in place on some of Batchelor Farms provides a healthy annual income stream to the property and a significant investment in planted hardwood timber. Established shooting holes, blinds, and deer stands are throughout the property. The duck blinds are in good condition and provide very comfortably hunting opportunities. If so inclined, hunters could arrive to the blind by vehicle or ATV. The entire property has been developed and managed for hunting and recreational benefit. In addition to plentiful waterfowl, healthy numbers of deer live along the Black River on Batchelor Farms and each year trophy bucks are harvested on the property.

If you need a break from hunting, Batchelor Farms has miles of roads and trails for ATV riding and several river sandbars provide a place to take a picnic lunch or camp for the weekend. The current owners of the property have a lifetime of great family memories along these old historic sandbars. Underneath a canopy of majestic Cypress Tress is Middle Old River Lake – an old oxbow lake on the property that provides unmatched fishing and hunting opportunities on the property.

In summary, this is a true recreational investment property in a historic area along the banks of the Black River. A long history of hunting success and a solid investment opportunity for an individual, a family, or a small group of hunter – this property is a very rare find.
