PROPERTY OVERVIEW: For 10,000+ years the mighty Brazos River Valley with its seemingly endless sea of grass prairie, gave refuge to grazing herds of buffalo and the indigenous, nomadic tribes that hunted them. Civilizations have continuously lived, hunted, and prospered here since the dawn of humanity itself. Today, in an area well known for fertile soil, robust grasses, productive cropland, abundant water and plentiful wildlife, this Morning Star Farm is “For Sale” for the first time in over a century.
Morning Star Farm is a legacy property centrally located in Robertson County, Texas in the Brazos Bottom, one of the earliest and most agriculturally productive parts of the state. Today, the 1,425 +/- acre Morning Star Farm offers a wide array of operational and recreational appeal, with 1.73 +/- miles of Brazos River frontage, ½ mile of Little Brazos River, 12+ different pastures, working pens, grasslands, prolific groundwater, Historic-Use Permitted ground water rights and over 600 base acres eligible for Farm Service Agency (FSA) program purposes.
A significant portion of the farm is found in open, improved pastureland with excellent interior and exterior fencing, gathering areas, lanes, functional gates and a working set of cattle pens. Other parts are planted in winter grasses in support of feeder cattle production, and still others have been taken out of agricultural production and the native prairie grasses restored to support conservation and wildlife production. The timbered portions of the farm are home to abundant wildlife including whitetail deer, songbirds, dove, varmints, bobcats, otters, bald eagles, feral hogs and many other wildlife species. Robertson Lake is a shallow marsh also located on the property that can hold thousands of wintering waterfowl as the roost along the Central Flyway. Abundant water, both below and above ground has been utilized and expanded upon with impressive infrastructure powered by on-the-grid electricity, solar panels, and diesel to pump water throughout the farm. In terms of its history and location, Morning Star Farm is a unique, high-quality property that offers both high-capacity agricultural production and recreational appeal built around the Brazos River, Robertson Lake, and over 300 acres reserved to encourage the growth of native plants and animals.
It is especially rare in this area to find a farm of this size and quality on the Brazos River with limited structural improvements, abundant ground water, well-developed and maintained agriculture improvements, restored native habitat, and mature pecan, elm, post oak and cottonwood trees. We are honored to offer the Morning Star Farm to the market, and believe this property represents an unparalleled and rare opportunity to own a large sprawling, legacy property in the historically and culturally important Brazos River Bottom of Texas.
