Farms and Land
In Jefferson, Shelby and St. Clair Counties
Alabama has a rich history of agriculture.
Dating back to the Native American farms of corn, squash, and beans - slash and burn clearing let to fertile farm land from the beginning of time.
As settlers arrived, the pattern of agricultural development became closely associated with Alabama’s major soil types and geographical regions.
Early settlers moving south from Tennessee and Kentucky found the clayey, limestone-derived soils of the Tennessee Valley and other north Alabama valleys well suited to crop production. The soils of the Piedmont area were initially attractive to settlers moving westward from Georgia, but they quickly discovered that soils on the hilly land washed away easily after plowing. The central Alabama Black Belt Prairie region, once known as the “Canebrake,” appealed to those emigrating from the Carolinas and Georgia. The region was accessible because of its rivers and its dark, clayey soils were well suited to plantation-style cotton production. Although cotton and other crops were grown on the sandy soils of the Cumberland Plateau and the Coastal Plain, they were not as productive, and farmers had not yet adopted the use of fertilizer and lime to increase soil fertility.
Today, a revival of the everyman farm has seen a resurgence across the United States and Alabama is the perfect place for a homestead.
With water and rich soil as our most valuable and accessible assets, low restrictions on agriculturally zoned land, Alabama welcomes farmers whether you're looking for a small hobby farm for your family or you're looking to make a living in the farming industry.
Equally popular, our land makes great hunting land with many hunting clubs for deer, dove, turkey, and more.
