"The farm provides an ideal getaway, adjoined by a large conservation landowner, close to Jacksonville, Gainesville and Ocala, with easy access to world-class bass fishing and a quiet place to enjoy nature and hunt. We have done a lot of the heavy lifting required to prepare this property to be enjoyed as a retreat and family recreation property with only the finishing touches remaining to make it your own."
Hunter Brant, President and Broker Oakwood Realty Group
Ocklawaha Farm derives its name from the Ocklawaha River, which flows by the Property and is only separated from the Farm by a large acreage state ownership. The Ocklawaha is one of the most pristine rivers in the State and makes the farm an excellent Conservation Easement candidate, the State has recently purchased several large parcels nearby for conservation. The property has a newly improved road system which allows access to many areas that were previously inaccessible. The natural areas of the property are seasonally wet and provide a sanctuary for all types of wildlife while the surrounding state ownership protects the Farm and adds additional habitat and privacy. The uplands have a mix of planted pine in 2 different age classes totaling 47.7 acres, and a 45 acre recently-harvested stand, of which a little more than half has been prepared as a large grove or field to give the property some diversity while the remaining portion could be re-planted in pines this winter. Several food plots were also cleared during the cleanup from the timber harvest and are ready to be planted. The farm provides an ideal getaway, adjoined by a large conservation landowner, close to Jacksonville, Gainesville and Ocala, with easy access to world-class bass fishing and a quiet place to enjoy nature and hunt.
The Farm is located just minutes from the town of Interlachen at the intersection of Hwy 310 and 315. It also has frontage on Kenwood Boat Landing Rd, which accesses Rodman Reservoir on the Ocklawaha River. It has 2 gated entrances and the paved road frontage is fenced with new 3-board fence. Bass fishing enthusiasts will know Kenwood Landing well, as many of the largest largemouths in the state have been caught while fishing out of this Landing. Rodman Reservoir provides an incredible amenity for the Ocklawaha Farm in addition to its excellent turkey and deer hunting. We believe that the Ocklawaha Farm represents a rare opportunity that is becoming increasingly hard to find in the rapidly growing state of Florida and will only become more valuable as time goes on. We have done a lot of the heavy lifting required to prepare this property to be enjoyed as a retreat and family recreation property with only the finishing touches remaining to make it your own.
