The dark and rich farmlands of the Texas coastal bend begin in Matagorda County where cotton, corn, rice, and milo have been productive, profitable and staple crops for several generations and the agricultural economy remains robust. The Collegeport Farm consists primarily of Laewest Clay soils drained by Pelican Slough into Tres Palacios Bay. The north side of the farm is exceptionally level, whereas the south side benefits from immediate drainage into the slough and the added bonus of redfish, whitetail deer, and waterfowl. There are 300+ frost-free days which also make it attractive for sod/turfgrass and other specialty crops. Approximately 90% or 650± acres are in cultivation with some planned acreage expansion. There are currently 84± acres of rice base and an additional 248± acres of wheat, corn, and milo base. The farm was in pasture until 2018 when it was planted to corn and cotton and repeated in 2019 and 2020 with excellent yields. The farm is currently operated as a dryland unit, but is located within LCRA’s Gulf Coast district and may have potential lateral canal access.
A 2018 three bedroom and two bathroom modular home with a large rear deck and storage shed was placed amongst the live oaks at the former homeplace and is in immaculate condition. A 60’ X 150’ equipment shop with LED lighting was constructed in 2018 for farm equipment storage and features four rollup doors, one with 20’ clearance for pickers and combines.
The Collegeport Farm represents a well-developed and improved farm unit, suitable for an investor, an established operator looking to expand, or a young producer needing a sizeable purchase.
