Sportsman’s Paradise With Farmhouse And Outbuildings In Central Iowa


Imagine starting the day by working a bird dog along the frosty native grass hillsides of your own farm. The pheasants are everywhere, and you’ll soon have your limit by late morning. Over a warm farmhouse lunch, you’ll debate which blind to sit for an afternoon Boone & Crockett caliber whitetail hunt. Maybe you’ll cheers to a successful evening, skinning a big buck in the finished Morton hunting lodge. 

This farm is the full package for those who ask for high-end hunting with a house and large equipment storage. Here, you can hunt every game animal or predator that Iowa has to offer. Decades of hunting memories have been made here. Well maintained by both the sellers and a local farm manager, it’s ready for the next one to enjoy.

An incredible mixture of habitat diversity paints this farm’s beauty, in the form of income producing upland CRP, pine forest, hardwood plantings, remnant prairie, and water sources. Food plots are planted next to the prime deer bedding areas. A creek meanders through the south end, and there are two stocked ponds that offer fishing, swimming, and year-round water for the animals.

A stout security system protects the entrance and buildings on this farm. The historic farmhouse has been remodeled for modern conveniences, and has a finished basement. Next-door stands three massive Morton buildings. One is finished into a lodge, complete with its own kitchen, bathroom, laundry, loft, and work area. The second is the large equipment storage building with a pheasant coop and dog kennel. The third is an implement shed that holds most of the large land management tools.
