Located 8 miles from I-40 in Monterey, Tennessee, between Crossville and Cookeville in Putnam County and less than an hour and a half from Nashville and Knoxville is the turn-key Tennessee hunting and farming paradise 447 +/- acre “China Cave” Tract. Widely known locally and worldwide, the China Cave, which access is located on this property, is a national treasure. With rooms and tunnels of this cave traversing over 8 miles into the ground, this is just one of the features of this large Putnam County tract of land. With Big South Fork Recreational Area near by as well as Lake Tansi, there is an unlimited amount of activities to be had.

Nearly 100 acres down by the Calfkiller River is some of the most fertile row crop ground in the area. It is currently in a bi-yearly soybean/corn rotation and is rented out for $10,000 per year to a local farmer.

The owner has been a true steward of this property since he took ownership, and has been very meticulous about wildlife management and making sure the wildlife has everything they need to thrive on the property. Over 7,000 pine trees have been planted along the nearly mile-long road frontage on the Calfkiller Highway, shielding the crop field from the road, making the deer and turkey feel more at ease about feeding in the fields. The tract has miles and miles of interior roads, making this property completely accessible to the entire tract. Every ridge and bench has an access close by from a ATV trail, and some trails are suitable for your pickup truck.

There are a few food plots planted in brassicas and clover, and numerous existing stands are conveying with the property. One of the most popular food plots on the property with the wildlife is one atop a ridge, which is planted in clover, overlooked by a Banks Blind, but features 2 ponds in the middle of the field. This plot has been very productful for deer hunting as well as turkey hunting over the years. As evident in the attached trail cam photos and harvest photos in this listing.

A 40’x60’ enclosed metal barn located in the bottom field will be perfect to store your tractor or ATV while not in use, and could also be finished out quickly to be a hunting cabin for that home away from home. If you are wanting to build your dream home nestled in the Tennessee mountains, there are multiple homesites with utilities at the road that would be accommodating for a custom built home.

Large tracts do not come to market often, much less one with the features of the China Cave Tract. Superior whitetail deer and turkey hunting, fertile income producing farm ground, unlimited recreational value with the trails throughout the property, build sites for the home in the Tennessee mountains, and the entrance to China Cave, this tract is one that will be treasured for generations.
