Hunting And Rec Farm With CRP Income Near Mt. Pleasant



It’s not often that I fall in love with a property but the minute I pulled into this farm and saw the view and the habitat from the hill on the west side I immediately loved it.  In addition to being incredibly diverse and having one of the most beautiful creeks (Big Creek) in Southeast IA on it, the view from the potential building site on the west side of the property is amazing. It’s as nice a building site as you’ll find and has rural water and electric now as well as a small pond! This property also features outstanding income with 94 acres of CRP generating $20,633/year. The terrain is very diverse with ridgetop fields, bottom fields, upland timber, and creek bottom timber. Hunting opportunities would include whitetails, turkeys, small game, predators, pheasant, and quail. This would also be an excellent property for trapping. Big Creek drains tens of thousands of acres, flows year round, is a major travel corridor for whitetails, and also holds fish during certain times of the year. This creek is incredibly scenic and forms 1.75 miles of boundary on the east side of this property. I haven’t seen many properties with beat down deer trails like this farm has. It will undoubtedly provide outstanding deer hunting for the new owner. Call with questions or to schedule a showing.
