Welcome to Rafter 4R Ranch! This centrally-located property is a 1,152 +/- acre working ranch, located in Northern Polk County, Florida. Rafter 4R Ranch has a mixture of improved pasture, pine and cypress forest, with scattered bay swamp, offering year-round grazing and deer and turkey hunting.

This property could be used as an ongoing cattle operation, for farming, sod production, hunting, entertainment, event facility, or agritourism. Centrally-located, the ranch is only 15 minutes from Interstate 4 in Lakeland, 40 minutes from downtown Orlando, and 50 minutes from downtown Tampa.

With a huge main living area, large modern kitchen, wine cellar, walk-in cooler and freezer, this home needs to be seen to be appreciated!

For the sportsman, adjacent to the main house is a covered, 5-stand skeet shooting range and a 4-room guest cottage. The ranch is completely fenced and cross-fenced with four separate barns. One includes an enclosed shop with an air conditioned breakroom and a separate tack/feed room. Also on the property is a covered large stock barn, pole barn, and hay barn.

Working cattle at 4R is made easier in cow pens that are completely covered and in excellent working condition. These pens have several ways to sort cattle and are serviced with water and electricity.
