The 2,892± acre North Greenwood Ranch is beautiful, open, and clean grassland with very, very few trees. The current tenant has spent many hours removing most of the trees and has cleaned up a lot of the oilfield equipment that was abandoned many years ago. There are no buildings other than an older concrete shop building that hasn’t been used for a long time. There is a large concrete slab where a building used to stand that now serves as a good place to store round bales for the cows.
This Flint Hills ranch is good to go with the grass in great condition, good fences, and plenty of water. Open rolling hills of grass extend over the horizon. This is a hard working grass ranch that will run cow/calf pairs or a great place for stockers. This place is productive and easy to own and operate.
The ranch is located approximately 12 miles north of Eureka in Greenwood County. Wichita is 70 miles northwest, Emporia is 38 miles due north, and Cassoday is 20 miles to the west.
The Kansas Flint Hills represent the bulk of the remaining acres of native tallgrass prairie in this country. Originally, there were over 140 million acres of this unique ecosystem, but only four percent of that remains, and it has been protected naturally by the predominate rocky soil. This rich soil sits on thick layers of limestone, flint rock, and shale. The limestone rock produces the naturally rich native grasses that cattle easily gain weight on, thereby cattle ranching is the main driver of the local economy. The native tallgrass species that dominate the area include both big and little bluestem grass and Indiangrass, along with numerous forbs and legumes.
The breathtaking beauty of these rolling Flint Hills with the native prairie grasses are speckled with many varieties of wildflowers. These hills are dominated by numerous springs and seasonal creeks in the draws.
The average high temperature in January is 43 degrees and the average high temperature in July is 90 degrees. Average annual precipitation is 37 inches and can include 6 inches of snow. The ranch averages around 185 frost-free days yearly. Elevation on the ranch ranges from 1,500 feet on the highest hills to 1,300 along the creek bottoms.
Acreage (Deeded & Leased)
Old concrete shop building and a large concrete slab used for hay bale storage.
Numerous fresh spring-fed ponds dot the ranch from one end to the other and provide fresh water for the livestock. In the southwest quadrant of the ranch is a nice lake known as Sinclair Lake.
Nearly all the mineral rights were reserved many years ago. There is one very small reservation that will revert to the landowner in a few years.
Property taxes are estimated at $8,048.94 based upon past years.
The North Greenwood Ranch has been operated over many years as a commercial cow/calf operation. The cow numbers have been around 280-290 head of cow/calf pairs. Occasional weed spraying and burning has helped to control various weed and brush species.
