Rancher and businessman Bill Haw sits in his office in Kansas City's West Bottoms.

The man who helped make the Flint Hills country worth driving through is selling prime grassland that comes with perpetual conservation easements.

Bill Haw is divesting himself of the property in order to focus more on his urban interests. The ranchland he has put up for sale come with the restrictions because “I don’t want it to remain perfect and unspoiled just for my lifetime, but forever more,” Haw said.
