El Indio Farm & RanchMaverick County
Size & Location: The El Indio farm and ranch is 292+/- acres located just south of El Indio in Maverick County. From the intersection of FM 1021 and FM 2644 in El Indio, travel south on FM 1021 for 4.7 miles, and the high fence gate is on the left-hand side.
General: This property has it all for a hunting and farming combination ranch. The newly constructed home is perfect for growing families or hosting friends and clients for a recreational getaway. The Maverick County canal on the east border provides all the irrigation necessary for grazing and crop production.
Improvements: A newly constructed four-bedroom, four-bath home with approximately 2,340 square feet is perfect, not to mention impressive for any guests you care to host at the ranch. The house is about six years old (completed in 2014). It combines rock and stucco with composition shingles for the exterior, a generous 16 X 65 covered porch, 10 feet ceilings, custom cabinets, and granite countertops finishing out the interior. There is an equipment barn, a hay barn, and a few deer blinds with feeders conveying the sale.
Water: The city water system supplies the home, and the Maverick County canal provides all the water needed for irrigating grass fields or row crops. There are four valves located on the channel to supply water to the ranch areas.
Vegetation: Most of the property is pastureland with grasses and some smaller brush, fields of grasses for grazing, and hay bales, but denser brushy areas are perfect for covering deer and hogs. The brushy areas are typical for this area and are essential for healthy wildlife.
Wildlife: Native free-ranging White-tailed deer that haven’t been hunted since the owners purchased the ranch in February 2013 and July 2013, wild hogs, lots of doves, and an excellent Bobwhite quail population inhabit the property. Also, with the Maverick County canal on the east border, there has historically been good catfishing in the channel.
Minerals: None. The surface estate only, and the property is not under the current lease.
Price: $3,600 per acre cash or third-party financing.
Comments: This is a good combination of ranch & farm with desirable size, location, and accommodations to reach across a broad spectrum of buyers. With good hunting and fishing and excellent reliable irrigating abilities, this ranch & farm has the potential to provide all of the components many buyers seek.
