Foester Ranch

Posted on: January 16th, 2020 by Davidson Charles

408+/- acres featuring Victoria Barge Canal Frontage, Highway Frontage, Pasture Land, and a Fishing & Hunting Paradise!

The Foester Ranch is a diverse and unique offering in that it can be divided and purchased as two separate parcels all with highly valuable attributes. From a future development potential this is an incredible investment opportunity. Furthermore, at $3500 per acre (for the entire 408 acres), the Seller will convey of the mineral estate!

The Subject Property:

Foester Waterfront (138 acres) is situated on the west side of Heyland Road. This tract features approx. 2,027 feet of frontage along the Victoria Barge Canal (VBC), a high bluff perfect for a lodge, house, or RV park, along with direct access by boat to San Antonio Bay, Guadalupe Bay, and several other bays and estuaries along the Gulf Coast.

Foester Pasture (270 acres) is bounded by blacktop on three sides, with State Hwy 185 frontage, Louis Walker Rd. frontage and to the east side of Heyland Road.

Description:

Foester Waterfront: With approx. 2,027 feet of frontage along the Victoria Barge Canal (VBC) and direct access to a renowned system of bays and estuaries for both saltwater fishing and waterfowl hunting, the Foester Waterfront land has the trifecta of fishing, hunting, and ranching capacity. Additionally, from a future investment perspective, this parcel increases the overall value of the entire ranch by tying into the VBC. There is large potential to site an industrial facility, FLC site (shipping containers), oil terminal, etc.

The elevation of the property is an important factor in determining the value of this property since it is well-protected from flooding. This parcel sits atop a high bluff (approx. 21 feet above the median water level) overlooking a relatively small tidal flats basin area but large enough to provide outstanding waterfowl habitat.

There is a mix of typical south Texas brush along with large Live Oak, and Anaqua trees creating a beautiful landscape nestled next to waterfront. The existing brush variety provides good cover and browse for deer while the open pasture is a mix of native grasses perfect for sustaining a good herd of cattle. There is a water well, single-phase electric power, and working cattle pens on site. Ingress to and egress from this parcel is from Heyland Rd., which is an asphalt road that is maintained by Calhoun County.

Considering the amount of water frontage, a new owner could develop either an inland marine (tug and barge) enterprise with docks and bulkheads that could accommodate up to 12 barges, a fishing marina, RV Park or hunting and fishing lodge. AEP (electric utility), has recently ran new power lines down Heyland Rd, providing an excellent source of reliable power.

Foester Pasture Description: The Foester Pasture is approx. 50% improved pasture and 50% scattered South Texas brush mixed with Live Oak and Anaqua trees. The east side of the property features approx. mile of frontage along State Hwy 185, the north boundary is bounded by Louie Walker Road. The west side is bounded by Heyland Road. There is a 25-acre fenced hay field originally planted with Jiggs bermudagrass that currently is a mixture of Bermuda and native grasses. The remaining pasture land is comprised of native grasses providing for ample forage for the cattle. The property is not fenced along Heyland Road, allowing cattle to cross from the Foester Pasture to the Foester Waterfront land for water. Game on the Foester Pasture predominately consists of whitetail deer, dove, and hogs. Toward the middle of the property is a drainage canal system that is maintained by the Calhoun County Drainage District. AEP Texas, Inc. (electric utility) has recently installed new electric lines along Louis Walker Road and Heyland Road providing an excellent source of reliable power.

This parcel ties into the larger ranch as a strategic source of grazing pasture and wildlife habitat. Considering the amount of road frontage, a new owner could easily divide the tract into smaller parcels for resale and/or develop the tract as a country estates subdivision.

Wildlife: Wildlife consists of typical coastal plains game including whitetail deer, hogs, dove, duck, geese, and various varmints. Excellent saltwater fishing and waterfowl hunting can be found along the VBC and nearby bays and estuaries.

Water: There is one water well on the Waterfront pasture that is used to water cattle, and there are no ponds, lakes, or other surface water. The property is situated on top of the Gulf Coast Aquifer, so the drilling of one or more additional well(s) would be relatively inexpensive.

Location: Located 3 miles north of Seadrift, Texas along State Hwy 185-S.

History: The Foester familys history in the immediate area dates back to 1847 when Louis John Foester immigrated from Germany with only a mastery of the saddlery trade. After arriving in Matagorda Bay, he began what would become a flourishing saddlery business, and then began to buy and trade for land. Every generation of the Foester Family has resided in Calhoun County for over 170 years, and has owned and operated thousands of acres of farms and ranches. The Curtis Foester Family has been acknowledged as one of the most influential families of Calhoun County, Texas in the 20th century.

Minerals: Provided that the property is sold for the Asking Price, the Seller will convey one-half (50%) of minerals associated with the land. There are no oil & gas leases covering the property, and there are no producing or non-producing oil & gas wells (or saltwater disposal wells) on the property.

Division: The parcels can be purchased as separately. Contact for pricing information.

Taxes: The property is taxed at 1D1 Ag Value, where applicable.

Asking Price: $1,429,890 (or ~$3,500/acre)

At Chef Menteur Pass, the oldest hunting and fishing club in the country, the Tally Ho Club, is a neighbor. This club was founded in 1815.

JAG Farm & Ranch

Posted on: May 14th, 2018 by Davidson Charles

The excellent waterfowl hunting, saltwater fishing, hogs, deer, and dove, combined with rich blackland rowcrop ground and good pastures make the JAG Farm & Ranch a fantastic combination recreational property/working farm and ranch with unique diversity and income potential. Unobstructed views of the flats and Lavaca Bay, plus over 3.5 miles of combined bay and creek frontage enhance the value of this property and the long term development prospects.

Location: The ranch is located approximately 20 miles southeast of Victoria and approximately 5.5 miles north of Port Lavaca on the northeast end of Lavaca Bay with paved FM road access to the entry. The Calhoun County Airport is minutes away (5,004 asphalt runway), and the nearby Victoria Regional Airport is also very convenient for larger planes.

Habitat: The +/-739 acre farmland portion of the property is entirely Laewest Clay designated as prime farmland per the USDA. This is a rich, black soil, generally level with an elevation of 29-30. The farm has 723.61 base acres per USDA, and has been planted in corn, cotton, milo, and soybeans through the years. The 10-year average yields for this very productive farm are strong, and are available upon request.

The non-cultivated portion of the ranch consists of an estimated +/-327 acres of upland pastures and brush, and +/-257 acres of tidal flats. The pastures are a nice mix of clean, open grasslands and areas of dense brush game habitat. Mesquites and huisache are the predominant brush species, but there are also more southerly browse plants such as lime prickly ash present on the ranch. Hackberry and cedar elm are the predominant trees, along with some nice live oaks. The tidal flats are largely grazeable wintertime pasture, and feature two main ponds of +/-3.5 and +/-2.5 acres, along with numerous smaller potholes that are great duck hunting spots.

Placedo Creek flows along the ranchs border for +/-3.5 miles, emptying into Lavaca Bay at the ranchs northeastern corner, with the shoreline of the bay forming part of the ranchs border.

Wildlife: There is a great combination of game on this property (waterfowl, dove, deer, hogs).

Placedo Creek is an area known to local sportsmen as a hotspot for speckled trout and redfish. Much of the creek can be fished from the bank and accessed by pickup or ATV, and there is a public boat ramp just down the shoreline from the ranch.

The ponds and potholes provide excellent duck hunting opportunities. Deer, hogs, and varmints frequent the upland pastures, and dove hunting can be excellent.

Water: Three windmills provide water for livestock & game in the pastures, and there is an electric well located at the implement barns.

Improvements: The farm portion of the property includes implement barns and a pair of old farm houses used for storage and a farm office.

Minerals: Surface only is being conveyed in this sale.

History: Owned by the same family for over 100 years, this farm and ranch was originally purchased by early 1900s Calhoun County Judge Willett Wilson.

Price: Asking $4,392,360 or $3,320/acre.
