Here is an excellent opportunity to purchase a combination hunting and CRP farm on the north side of Macomb. The property is located north of WIU, approximately 3 miles along North 1500th road, and has blacktop road frontage along the entire north line. There is a small country home, about 1,200 sq. ft., located on the northeast corner of the property, along with an oversized detached two-car garage and an older barn, both adjacent to the house. A small ¼ acre pond is located by the house, which offers fishing opportunities. An established trail network heads south of the house and allows easy access into and throughout the farm. The trail crosses a seasonal creek that runs through the northern part of the property and offers a water source throughout much of the year. The trail meanders through the timber and atop a hill in the middle of the property, then east to the property line, bringing you into the CRP field. This 52-acre CRP field provides a solid return and offers an incredible amount of bedding cover. The CRP field naturally contours to the south, and you can watch a vast amount of land from atop this hill. Several adjoining crop fields provide a food source with this farm serving as the primary bedding area. The sellers purchased this back in the early 1980s and immediately started planting various types of oaks, walnuts, and pine trees, along with several other species of trees. Forty years later, this farm has developed into a very diversified farm with a tremendous amount of bedding cover, a return on your investment, and, most importantly, is in better condition than it was forty years ago, ensuring its preservation for future generations. If you are in the market for a diversified farm offering hunting, investment return, and a place to stay, call today for more information or to schedule a private showing.
