MD Kelly, quite frankly, is an amazing man. A man of principle, a man of vision. Mr. MD is the youngest of 12 siblings, who grew up working hard on a family farm following the great depression. Like others during that time, MD became a man with a passion for hard work. He started a sheet metal business in 1968, and along with his wife raised 3 daughters. In the late 70's some friends took him on a deer hunt - and he wasn't too impressed.
But the stillness and solitude of being in the outdoors beckoned to him, and he started to enjoy that particular peace and solitude.
He started adding acreage to his personal family farm. He studied how to create a natural habitat for native whitetail deer - wanting his family and grandchildren to enjoy seeing beautiful deer in their natural habitat.
Due to overzealous hunters in the area who did not share the passion for growing trophy whitetail bucks, Mr. MD realized he would need to protect his herd from both natural predators and other hunters. Therefore he highfenced over 500 acres and began to grow his extraordinary herd.
He traveled all over the United States, researching, learning from other successful farmers, bringing back their knowledge to implement in North Florida. He wanted to grow a sustainable, trophy-class deer herd and provide his family/friends with outdoor adventures in the fields, by the ponds and throughout his farming operation.
Raising fawns, watching sunsets, sitting in tree stands observing the natural habits of whitetail deer, fishing in the ponds, laughing around a campfire.....Mr. MD worked hard and made his dreams come true.
After 25+ years, Mr. MD is selling this extraordinary ranch - fully operational and with two separate living places, both a 2BR/2Bath camp-house and also a 6BR/2Bath bunkhouse (built in 2016). It's a rare opportunity for a younger person to own a fully operational place where they do not have to spend 20+ years to get to the level of success on a ranch that so many just dream about. It's a place ready to step into and begin enjoying immediately It's a place to invite your whole family, spend spring, summer or fall break together, celebrate Thanksgiving riding your horses, or exploring on 4 wheelers, fishing, roasting smores around your campfire, and just relax making memories enjoying your own secluded ranch in North Florida.
Mr. MD's story has many happy endings and memories ......
his story can now become a new story for a new owner....
and many great memories to be made
with your family/friends.
