Bill E. Newman Real Estate LLC and Cruikshank Realty, Inc.
are excited to be marketing the Fry Irrigated Farm.
This farm is one of the largest contiguous irrigated farms in the Oklahoma Panhandle. The Fry Farm offers a Buyer the opportunity to own a masterfully planned income crop producing operation with the potential of hunting as a secondary income. With all its allocated water, productive sandy soils, location and accessibility it offers a multitude of investment opportunities. The major improvements on the property are those associated with production, irrigation wells, sprinklers, water pipeline, gas pipeline, and electrical wiring. The only house is more than adequate for an onsite manager. The possibility of diversifying into a livestock operation whether it be cattle feed yard, dairy, year around grazing or establishing a organic operation are wide open. This level to gently rolling farm with its sandy soils, ability to produce 10,100 GPM (12,664 ac ft/year), and an almost ideal growing climate with its location makes this farm a prime income property.
