SOLD: Fox Branch Ranch

Fox Branch Ranch is an outstanding parcel that has it all, appealing to ranchers, farmers, hunters, and those who enjoy the outdoors.

This 2,876-acre property is located in Central Florida’s Polk County. If a key feature for a property is location, then Fox Branch Ranch has it. With proximity to major transportation corridors, it is only 10 minutes north of I-4 in north Lakeland. Tampa is just a 45-minute drive and Orlando is only 60 minutes away.

If you are an outdoor enthusiast, you will love this property.

Not only are there a little over 2,000 acres protected with a conservation easement, but the property is located in a key conservation corridor between the Hillsborough River and the Green Swamp.

The majority of property is protected with a conservation easement. The south 630 acres of this parcel are unencumbered and have been previously designated as a Planned Unit Development. Although possibly not the highest and best use for the land currently, this area could represent potential for future residential development.

This is a highly productive ranch with a cattle carrying capacity of one animal unit per 2.5 acres.

Other sources of income include sod, farming, seed, and hay operations.

In addition, this property shares over a 3.5-mile boundary with government-owned land that is not currently open to the public for hunting. Because of this proximity to what essentially is a wildlife refuge, Fox Branch Ranch is teeming with wildlife, including deer, turkey, and hogs.

Fox Branch Ranch has been owned for four generations by the same Polk County pioneer family and this is the first time the property has been offered for sale.

If your plans include the purchase of property that has excellent location, rich history, and is a great fit for ranching, agriculture, and recreation, then Fox Branch Ranch is ideal.
