Sea Hoss Farms

Property Features

Sea Hoss Farms, an 852-acre tract located in eastern Houston County, Alabama – a short 17 miles east of Dothan – strikes the perfect blend between timber, recreational, and conservation attributes. Enjoying this property is enhanced with the inclusion of several improvements – a cabin, pole barn, three small ponds, and numerous food plots that have been nicely sculpted into the landscape.

Lying in the Lower Coast Plain Region of Southern Alabama, Sea Hoss Farms has a gently rolling topography with soils made of sand, sandy loam, sandy clay, and a bit of gravel. Consequently, the soils are productive for agriculture and forestry. The former owner, who purchased the property in a clear–cut state, re–planted loblolly in 1993 and 1994 and, within the past year, some longleaf pines as well. Approximately 68% of the tract is plantable.

Because of the importance of protecting the natural habitat that exists on Sea Hoss Farm, a conservation easement was placed on the property with the Alabama Land Trust. Still, silviculture practices are allowed and the constraints associated with the easement are primarily development–oriented.

Special plant communities found in this region are dunes, pine flatwoods, and cypress swamps that provide an ideal habitat for game and non–game mammals, amphibians, and reptiles as well as important nesting sites for several species of neotropical migrant songbirds, birds of prey, and various game birds. Some are rare and threatened species. The wetlands and swamps found on Sea Hoss Farms are part of the larger Turnpike Swamp located to the northwest. Sea Hoss Farms is also positioned five miles west of the Chattahoochee River and serves as an important component of the Chattachoochee–Chipola River watershed.

Access to Sea Hoss Farms makes it even more desirable and valuable. Situated just 1.5 miles south of U.S. Highway 84, the property has paved road frontage on Springhill Church Road, Paul Jeffcoat Road, and County Road 8.
