Farm & Ranch
Whether you’re into hunting, farming and ranching or just getting back to nature, south-central Nebraska offers some excellent and affordable opportunities to buy yourself the perfect place. Far away from the hustle and bustle, there is plenty of land with live springs and creeks, river bottoms, rolling tall-grass prairie, fertile farmland and wooded ravines filled with massive cottonwoods, black walnut and elm trees. There is an incredible amount of wildlife and the stars blaze at night unspoiled by city lights. Lots of the old settlers’ homesteads still have the old barns, sheds, outbuildings and original houses still on them. In general, land prices can run from $400 to $1,000 an acre for ‘dryland’ and bit higher for irrigated land. Auctions are common.
