Property Description

The search is over!! The perfect all inclusive and sustainable farm is here. Welcome to your very own private secluded oasis in Hart County. The Prather Farm is now available. Owned and operated by the Prather family since 1904, this incredible organic farm has been passed down for generations and maintained in excellent condition throughout it's history. There is a total of 75.58 acres including 3 homes with spacious yards, 28 acres of tillable organic crop land (including fields and gardens) with in-ground irrigation supply from the farm's own 8 acre private spring-fed lake, and nearly 30 acres of open pasture. The farm is in the farming community of Vanna, just outside Royston Ga. Crops grown in recent years include organic sunflowers and canola for oil, watermelon, cantaloupe, and a vast array of organic vegetables and herbs. And in 2020 ten acres of industrial hemp was grown for oil and biomass under state license. The nearly 30 acres of pasture bordering the lake, once home to cattle, has sustained as many as six horses growing fat on good grass and drinking clean clear water from the lake. The main house (lake house) features an 800 square foot covered back porch overlooking the lake with horses grazing on the other side. In quiet seclusion, the large deck offers a soul-calming view of nature's glory as the sunrises over the earthen dam, spreading shimmering light over clear water where fish, wild geese, ducks and wading birds swim and nest At night the sounds of nature at the lake are symphonic. There are 3 houses on the property. The main house (lake house) has 5 bedrooms (including a large dormitory-like room for visiting grandchildren currently), 13 beds (twins, trundle, fulls, queens), and 3 & 1/2 baths. The second home was built in 2017 and has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths with an vaulted open floor plan kitchen, living room and dining room, and features two large deep porches front and back for outdoor living. Currently tenants of ten years occupy the third house with 3 bedrooms and 1 bath. There is a large barn right off the lake that serves as storage and protection for farm equipment. Nearby there is a long covered storage shed with five large multi-use stalls.
