Rolling CRP Farm Bordering Lake Anita State Park


Whitetail Properties Real Estate is proud to offer this beautiful rolling CRP farm on the edge of Lake Anita State Park. This farm checks all the boxes for a recreational land investment. It has guaranteed CRP income through 2021, it borders a wildlife refuge that has a history of producing some top-end bucks, there are multiple access points on the south end of the farm and with its close proximity to town, there are a number of ideal building sites available. Even if a re-enrollment back into a CRP contract isn’t attractive, there are nearly 64 acres that could be put back into row crop production. This farm has been well cared for and has great potential. If you’d like to see this farm for yourself, schedule a private showing with the listing agent. Showings by appointment only.
