With a long time family history, the Hamlin Ranch has been owned and operated by the strong stewarding hands of the Hamlin’s since 1941 in central South Dakota, 40 miles east of Pierre. To settle their estate, nine separate tracts will be offered on the open market. Today, this 1,220 acre operation is an all contiguous working ranch with headquarters, livestock facilities, pole shed, barns, bins, Sundance Artesian Well, Mid-Dakota Rural Water, crop land, pasture land and trees in CRP.
With over 1,000 acres of Class II soils, this attractive farm offers quality and consistency, with 680.45+/- cropland acres and 628.16+/- base acres, as this farm is currently enrolled in ARC-CO for Wheat, Corn & Sunflowers. Having the potential for more acres to be converted into row crop production, the balance of this operation consists of well-fenced pasture and hay land, along with the Hamlin Ranch Headquarters. Access is a valuable asset in central S.D., with this operation offering great access on both sides of the well maintained Holabird Grade, only 3.5 miles south of Hwy 14.
The headquarters is inclusive of a 1,368sf home with an addition built in 2006, a master bedroom with jet tub and shower in master bath, an additional 1/2 bath & laundry hookups on main floor and two additional rooms on the main floor. Mid-Dakota Rural Water supplies the home while the 70+/- degree Sundance Artesian Well economically furnishes the furnace in the home, along with 6 water tanks, 2 water taps and overflows into dams/dugouts year round throughout the property. Well water tanks are equipped with a coiled hose circulating well water for thawing in the winter. A bin site, with 5 bins holding a total of 23,500+/- bushels, accompanies the property with its own 220 amp service. Favorable for a livestock operation, this site also includes holding pens, a 40x60 pole shed with well water tap and three barns, one with a cement floor and well water tap.
There is a wind energy easement with Triple H Wind Project on this land, currently in the development period, paying $4.00 per acre with 100% of payments going to the purchaser beginning December 2017.
