This east Texas honey hole is a short drive from Dallas and offers a rare combination of large acreage, recreational enjoyment, superb cattle grazing and a plethora of hunting opportunities. Situated on 711+/- acres of prolific land, Deerfield Ranch provides secluded tranquility within high fenced borders that include everything from the productive Sabine River bottoms to the dynamic elevated views for miles and into the neighboring Burleson Wetlands which provide a natural buffer running along the entire northern boundary.

The property is located three miles south of Mineola, TX and approximately 84 miles east of downtown Dallas, TX on the edge of the Piney Woods within Smith County.

Habitat & Topography:
The ranch offers a variety of mixed use habitat within the South Central Plains Ecoregion. Numerous pastures have been cleared for grazing / hunting purposes and to open up the land in various areas. Improved grasses have been introduced in multiple areas and flourish in the fruitful soil. Native grasses are prevalent throughout the wooded areas, which include majestic mature hardwoods and scattered pine trees. Extensive improvements have been made to the environment around the residences and in other areas of the ranch. The soils primarily consist of fine sandy loam with some clay near the river and creek bottoms. The main body of the ranch has approximately 130’ +/- elevation changes, which is well above average for this geographical area.

The property is currently a very productive cattle ranch operation and can support approximately 200 momma cows. Permanent and mobile cross fencing is in place with established lanes to easily rotate cattle and utilize intense grazing methods. Water is plentiful via stock tanks, irrigation, creeks or lakes. Improved grasses are mostly comprised of Coastal Bermuda, Common Bermuda and Bahia. In recent years the cattle were supplied to Whole Foods Market’s beef program but are not currently enrolled. *Livestock is not included in the list price.

Wildlife, Hunting:
Deerfield Ranch has an abundance of wildlife and opportunities for any sportsman. Whether your passion involves angling or the pursuit of deer, dove, hogs, predators or varmints, you will find no shortage here. The entire ranch is secured with high fencing and has been responsibly managed under Texas Parks and Wildlife’s Managed Lands Deer Program. Over time the native herd has been cultivated to produce quality white-tailed deer.

Located within one of the most productive zones of the Central Flyway, there are phenomenal opportunities for waterfowl hunting. Large bodies of water, duck sloughs, creeks and plenty of forage attract a multitude of species. Several duck and deer blinds as well as feeders are in place.

Water, Fishing:
Both surface and subsurface water is abundant throughout Deerfield Ranch. The surface water includes nine individual lakes, a portion of Coppers Branch off of Rock Creek and multiple tributaries off of Village Creek which runs below Burleson Lake. The largest lake is approximately eight surface acres and 40 feet deep. Most of the lakes are stocked and present trophy fishing opportunities.
