Location: This ranch is located only 1.5 hours south of Houston, 9 miles NW of Edna in Jackson County, TX. It has .8 miles of frontage on CR 128. It’s also located only 15 minutes from Jackson County Airport. This property once was part of the historic Robinson Ranch.
Vegetation: The ranch is covered in hundreds of beautiful, huge live oaks, some reaching 18 feet in circumference, giving some parts of the ranch a park-like appearance. There are also many big pecan and elm trees along the Chicolete Creek and the Lavaca River bottoms. The native brush is typical of the Texas coastal plains, including post oaks and yaupon, among many others.
Terrain: The terrain is extremely diverse, ranging from bottomlands to gently rolling hills.The Chicolete Creek, a year-round, spring-fed creek, traverses half of the southern border of the ranch, and the Lavaca River stretches along the eastern border of the ranch, providing excellent habitat for wildlife in the bottoms. The ranch primarily has sandy loam soils throughout, with darker soils in the lower areas.
Hunting: With so much water and native woodlands, the ranch provides wonderful habitat to all kinds of wildlife. There are white-tail deer, turkey, hogs, quail, dove, ducks, and geese. For the past 50 years, the ranch has primarily been used as a cattle operation, and has not had any hunting pressure. Also, this area is well-known for its duck and geese hunting in the winter months. The Lavaca River has many fishing holes that hold lots of big catfish.
Water: The water on this ranch is incredible!There is approximately 1 mile of Lavaca River frontage and 1 mile of year-round Chicolete Creek frontage. There’s 1 half-acre pond that is very deep, traditionally used as a swimming hole. Due to the natural low areas and clay underneath the sand, this pond has great potential, with some construction required, to be expanded by many acres. The ranch also has about a 25 acre lake, in the shape of a horseshoe, which is like flooded timber marshland. It is an excellent area for duck hunting! There are no water wells on the ranch, but the owner will provide a credit upon sale to the buyer to drill a residential water well. The ranch lies over one of the most prolific aquifers in Texas, and neighboring ranches have irrigation wells that produce 2,000 GPM or more.
Minerals: No minerals to convey, and there is no current production on the ranch.
Improvements: About half of the ranch’s borders are low-fenced, and there are 10 to 15 acres planted in milo. There is electricity on the ranch.
