Description

Echols Ranch has been owned by the same family and producing cattle southeast of Megargel, Texas since 1902, shortly after the original patent from the State of Texas.  This acreage contains cultivation and grass pastures that are perfectly broken into four fields with woods, creeks and draws creating animal corridors between them all. Most recently the south pasture was managed for weeds as well as approximately half of the mesquite cover.  Although Echols Ranch has been primarily used for cattle, this land has diverse habitats for wildlife and recreational activities for all.  The property features more than a mile of Bitter Creek with various pockets of water and substantial tree cover for turkey roosts.  The stock ponds on the property provide water for wildlife and cattle with the better of the two surviving the last drought and containing fish.  The southern 180 acres is the only portion currently under an oil and gas lease with active production.  The owners are willing to negotiate on the sale of some of the mineral interest.  The availability of minerals coupled with an active ranching tenant willing to stay makes Echols Ranch an income-producing property with ample recreational activities ready to be enjoyed.
