Wabash Valley Income Producing Hunting Farm For Sale


It’s extremely rare for a tract this size to sell on the open market in this area! This farm has tillable acres, high paying CRP acres, and hunting opportunities all in one. The farm boasts 209 acres of tillable according to USDA map. For the 2019 crop, these acres are cash rented for $180 per acre. The 2020 farm tenancy will be open to the new buyer, or the current farmer will gladly continue. In total, six fields make up the tillable acres on this farm, with 3 of them being over 47 acres in size. Going back five years to 2014 these fields have a 180 bushel average on corn and 58 bushel average on beans. There is access on both the north and south ends of the farm as well as road system throughout the farm making for easy access. There are CRP buffers around each field that pay well and provide erosion control and access while the crops are standing. The 70 acres of CRP encompass three different programs, CP21, CP33, and CP42. These programs made the best use of the acreage they occupy, eliminating erosion issues, small sections of HEL ground, and pooling water areas, all while paying $16,182 a year. The balance of this farm is in hardwood ridges and creek bottom habitat. These acres are full of deer and turkey sign. The buffer strips around each field and the internal road system make hunting access a breeze even while the crops are standing. There is a CRP and timber mix section on the west side towards the north end of the farm that is great hunting. It has bedding cover, water, and is full of deer sign. The all timber block in the middle of the farm is a large timber ridge that runs east to west with a trail system through most of it. There are rubs, scrapes, and turkey sign all over this ridge. The large timber block near the South end has a great mix of hardwoods and bedding cover. This section of the farm has tremendous deer and turkey sign, the heaviest of the whole farm, which is saying something. From an addition to a farming operation to a hunting farm with great income, this farm meets both criteria. Call today for a private showing!
