A special thank you to the heirs and loved ones of Ronald Akin. Hunt Auctioneers is honored to assist with the sale of the Akin properties, and as an icon in the Green County agricultural community, Mr. Akin's presence will be greatly missed.
Half way between Greensburg and Munfordville, just off HWY 88 on Russell Cemetery Road, lies a true sportsman's paradise. This mostly wooded 444+/- acre farm is interspersed with approximately 50+ acres of cropland, 57+ acres enrolled in the CREP program, and nearly surrounded by the Little Barren River and Trammell Creek. Russell Cemetery Road and a gravel road (w/easement for all tracts and an adjoining landowner at the south eastern end of the property) divide the farm and provide access to the fertile bottom land. County water is available to all tracts, via the Green Co Water District, from a water line running the length of Russell Cemetery Road and the 30' easement that divides the farm. Turkeys can be seen on nearly every visit and the farm has produced several trophy deer, as evidenced by the current tenant's numerous stands positioned around the property. In addition to providing substantial income, The CREP contracts enhance the upland game population, and contribute to a diverse landscape. A Good stand of young growing timber, a mere 10 to 15 years from harvest, makes this farm a solid investment, sure to pay dividends in the future. Any winning bidder of a tract with a CREP contract agrees to assume the balance of the contract (Sept 30, 2022) with all rights and responsibilities.

PLEASE NOTE: This farm is leased through 12/31/2019. The current tenant will retain all crop and hunting rights through 2019. The new owner(s) will take possession of the farm on Jan. 1, 2020.
