Southeast IA Hunting And Rec Farm With Tillable And CRP Income

Trailcam

Description

This is an exceptional recreational property located near Lockridge that is completely secluded at the end of a dead-end road! It has a nice pond on the NW corner, a beautiful rock/sand bottom creek flowing through over 1.5 miles of the property, and approximately ¾ mile of Skunk River frontage. This farm would offer deer, turkey, small game, pheasant, quail, and predator hunting and would also provide fishing opportunities in the pond and river. There are currently 66 tillable acres and 36.88 acres of CRP. 10-15 additional acres have just been cleared and will be farmed in the future. The tillable acres are currently being rented for $235/acre or $15,510/year and the CRP is producing $7576/year. Total income is currently around $23,086/year but this could increase with the additional tillable acres. There is a structure on the NW corner of the property that could be easily be finished into a cabin. You could also build the home or cabin of your dreams overlooking the pond. The Skunk River drainage in the Mt Pleasant area has always been known for producing world-class whitetails and this property should be no exception. Check out the recent trail cam pictures the owner has gotten on this property! One look at the aerial and it’s obvious this is a great archery farm and there are also excellent locations for late-season food plots. Judging from the number and size of the walnut trees I saw on the property, there should be significant timber value if a select cut were done on the farm. If you’re looking for a farm in SE Iowa that offers every recreational opportunity imaginable and that would be great for the entire family, you’ll want to check this one out. Call the listing agent with questions or to schedule a showing.
