With four miles of frontage and big views of the iconic Brazos River, a legitimate ranching operation, recreational opportunities, and producing minerals, the McCrary Ranch has it all. The setting on the Brazos is unique, as a central ridge gently rises nearly 100’ over the regular channel of the river and surrounding farmland, creating alluvial pastureland that is largely protected from the forces of the river. Oak studded pastures are primarily coastal Bermudagrass on sandy loam soils and are well watered and cross fenced with good interior roads found throughout the ranch.
Mesquite, oak, elm, and pecan make up approximately 250± acres of scattered woodlands and support large dear and feral hog numbers. Duck, dove, deer, and hog hunting all have tremendous potential with further management. Current mineral development on the property is owned and operated by the seller and is included in the offering down to the current operating depth.
The ranch consists of approximately 980± acres in Milam County between Calvert and Cameron with paved access and a small ranch home. The property enjoys nearby access to Waco, Temple, and College Station, and is easy accessible from north Houston, Austin, and Dallas Ft. Worth.

I have purchased 4 ranches through Hall and Hall over the past 20 years, and there is simply no other team in the world like them.
