A haven in Collingsworth County, The Starkey Place features the meandering Salt Fork of the Red River along the southern edge. A fine reflection of God’s handiwork, find refuge in this retreat as spring fed ponds are ready to be stocked. With a combination of native grass and 73.32 acres of CRP set to expire Sept. 30, 2020, varied topographies extend from level plains to rolling landscapes and tall geographies. Elevation spans 103 feet from lowest to highest point.
Cottonwood and elm trees offer great roosting spots for turkey in river region. Chinaberry, hackberry and a few junipers along with brush and mesquite provide plenty of cover for white tail deer, quail, dove, wild hogs and varmints too. Beavers even graced the property at one time.
Improvements include a hunting camp with an RV pad, electricity, 2 wells and a couple of storage sheds at the entrance of the property from County Road N. Good barbwire fences surround the east, north and west sides with the exception of the three CRP areas. Ranch has some cross fencing, older corrals and two windmills that have not been utilized in years.
The Starkey Place offers excellent cattle grazing too on three contiguous sections only 15 minutes from Wellington. A leveled off gravel pit separated from the property by County Road 150 on the east side conveys with the sale. A transmission line runs down the eastern edge of the property and a pipeline easement stretches from north to south through section 86.

RANCH HISTORY: Oran Doolen Starkey, Sr. put The Starkey Place together in the 1940s with Doneghy, Gamble and Payne land for the farming, ranching and commercial catfish operation. A long-term hunting lease spanned almost 30 years along with cattle grazing leases until June 2019. The location of the railroad bridge that washed out in the big flood of 1938 causing the train to plunge into the water is on this stretch of the Salt Fork of the Red River.
