+/- 42 Acres of Pasture and Hay Ground for Lease Near Whittier

— Written By

Since 1922 the Chandler family has owned and lovingly managed their 160 acre property outside of Whittier in Swain County, North Carolina. They are holding onto the land but Mr. Childers senior is no longer able to physically get out and take care of his cows and put up hay. The family is seeking a cattleman or cattle woman to bring in their own herd or purchase the existing Childers herd and lease the pastures and hay field.

The available agricultural land includes approximately 35 acres of fenced pasture and 8 acres of hay field. Pastures include Soil and Water Conservation water tanks or stream access. Land has been utilized according to a USDA developed prescribed grazing plan which we would like to see continue. Family members live on and around property.

The family is open to selling the existing herd which includes heifers and momma cows. They would also be open to liquidating their herd so a new cattleman or cattle woman could bring in their own herd or use the land for finishing their own steers on grass. Livestock facilities include a corral, one gravity fed watering tank, hay barn, perimeter fencing. The family intends to install an additional well fed pressurized watering tank with assistance from the Swain County Soil and Water Conservation District.
