Situated just a short 45 minutes east of Tifton, the Alapaha River Ranch is 4,600± acres of quality game and timber managed property with agricultural potential. It is situated along the Alapaha River, which was voted as one of Georgia’s outstanding waterways, and is a favorite of the locals for fishing and hunting.
With a majority of the ranch covered with pine timber, purchasing this acreage presents a tremendous timber investment opportunity. Interior road systems are established and the planted pines consist of various age classes (from 5-24 years) and species, including longleaf, slash and loblolly.
“This property enjoys diverse habitats and ecosystems and the Alapaha river bottoms contain some of the largest live oaks around, creating some of the best deer and turkey habitat imaginable,” stated Earl Williams an auction manager for Higgenbotham.
“These parcels include hardwood drains and sloughs, providing great hunting opportunities. Turkey, quail, deer and duck are a few of the game found in season. This is truly an outdoorsman’s paradise,” Williams concluded.
