Welcome to Crawford Farms
Our Adams County farm in the hills of southern Ohio provides a unique
combination of crop fields, permanent pastures and woodlands. The 1,200 acre
hunting property is situated on a 2 mile long, dead end, county road. There are
very few acres of other cropland in the immediate area so our farm is prime
habitat to trophy deer, turkey and other wildlife. The land which surrounds our
hunting property is mostly wooded. Big bucks, like those that have made
southern Ohio a popular place to hunt, are here.
Our main crop rotation includes corn, clover/grass hay, alfalfa hay, and wheat. In
addition we maintain 30 dedicated, small (1/4 to 1 acre) food plots including Buck
Forage Oats, various brassicas, Whitetail Clover and alfalfa providing deer and
turkey year round feeding opportunities. In addition we raise beef cattle.
Woodlands make up about 65% of the property and are mostly mixed hardwood
with several scattered thickets of eastern red cedar. A large number and many
varieties of oaks are found throughout the woodlands. The woodlands border and
in some cases surround the crop fields providing many travel funnels for our deer.
The terrain is hilly (short, steep hills) with small crop fields located on the main
ridge of the farm and the woodlands mostly downhill from the crop and pasture
fields. There is a difference in elevation of about 300 feet from the highest ridge to
the deepest hollow, with many smaller backbones and hollows in between.
Check out our Trophy Room pages which feature deer harvested by clients in
recent years. All of the trail camera pictures were taken during the 2012/13
season and are located on the various pages of this web site. You should be
able to click on any picture to see it in a larger version.
Thanks for taking the time to look at our web site.
