649.9 Acre Working Farm in Hickman County, KYKY-123, Clinton, KY 42031, USA
Acre: 5359 KY-123 Clinton, KY 42031
In 2021, FLC partnered with a farmer to preserve close to 650 acres in Hickman County, Kentucky. The tract includes cultivated cropland along with a pond, small creeks, and small wooded areas. The property’s primary use as agricultural land yields scenic, pastoral views of the rural, open countryside and gently rolling hills indicative of western Kentucky and the Loess Plains Ecoregion.
Observed birds included the American crow, mallard, red-tailed hawk, and wild turkey. Snow geese and other migratory waterfowl use agricultural lands in the region as stopovers during winter. Check out videos of snow geese in flight taken during a site visit to the farm back in February 2021:
Back in 2018, FLC worked with the same landowner to preserve another 600 acre working farm in Lake County, TN. That property is also located close to the Mississippi River and is in close proximity to Reelfoot Lake Wildlife Management Area. Click here to view this project (#294).
