This is a genuine south Alabama treasure. Sutton Dairy Road Farm is 364 gorgeous acres of woods, water, and fields with a large brick home in south Barbour County. It has been a family homestead since the early 1900'S and was a working dairy farm for several decades. Located near the small town of Elamville, this is the first time it has been offered for sale in over 100 years. With several well-established food plots and miles of internal trails through the woods, it is perfectly set up for you to enjoy some of the best deer and turkey hunting in south Alabama. The possibilities for this exceptional property are unlimited. Sitting peacefully in a largely agricultural area with great neighbors, the farm features:
• 310 acres of mixed hardwoods and pines
• Over 40 acres of pristine hay fields
• Move-in ready home
• Six-acre, stocked pond
• Named, year-round creek
• An old dairy barn with numerous other barns and outbuildings
• 1.2 miles of paved road frontage
• Excellent internal trails and established food plots
• Potential for high fence and hunting outfitter
The farm presents many great opportunities for the new owners. Just the way it is, you can live, hunt, fish, cut hay, and manage timber while enjoying the farm's outstanding recreational opportunities. A large part of the 310 wooded acres was previously used for growing hay and as pasture for a large herd of Holsteins and beef cattle. When the dairy ceased production in the 1970'S most of those acres began growing a mix of hardwood and pine timber which has never been harvested. The exception is over 40 acres of well-maintained Coastal Bermuda hay fields that remain in production today and produce some of the finest hay in the area. The timberland provides many options - you could harvest some timber and convert those acres back to pasture or row crop land, replant in fast growing pines, or leave it alone to let the timber keep growing.
The large creek and beautiful six-acre pond ensure there is plenty of water. Inside the east boundary on the farm, Judy Creek flows inside the property for over 4,000 feet. The six-acre, spring-fed pond maintained its water level even through the drought of 2019. It is stocked with Largemouth bass and bream. Nicely tucked away and surrounded by woods, it is quiet and peaceful. You would also expect to see plenty of wood ducks flying in and out of the pond. On the southeast corner, Beaver creek runs for several hundred feet forming the boundary line.
The home was built in 1945 and is currently used in conjunction with a hunting lease. A solidly built brick home, it's 2,780 square feet features five bedrooms, three full bathrooms, kitchen and dining area, large den, and a utility room. The yard is neat and well kept, there are no neighbors, and you will certainly enjoy the peace and quiet. It also features an original brick fireplace that is not currently being used. If you were hoping for more land, there are 386 acres and a farmhouse across the road which are also for sale.
