A rare Florida gem! Mossy Back Ranch is nestled in the southeast countryside of Manatee County, only a short 45-minute drive to Sarasota! This turn-key ranch and family compound has been meticulously maintained to ensure the infrastructure, as well as the land, stay in great condition over the course of time. Ideal for a weekend getaway or a new place to call home, this working cattle ranch is currently running 200 head of cattle and was once partially farmed for citrus. A versatile property, the land itself could be farmed for various row crops and the large 16,000 square foot storage shop and numerous other structures could be utilized for a full-scale farming operation.

Oak hammocks, pasture utilized as food plots, and a small mix of wetlands provide an ideal habitat for various types of wildlife. The property has not been hunted in years, creating a sanctuary for game. This creates an ideal opportunity for a sportsman wanting to incorporate good wildlife management practices on the ranch.
