Small Farm With Multiple Building Sites And Diverse Hunting



This is what so many buyers are looking for now. A smaller affordable property with great hunting and a building site on a paved road. This property is located just off Highway 1 in northern Jefferson County and would be convenient to Fairfield as well as Washington, Iowa City, and Cedar Rapids. The entire property was planted in trees approximately 30 years ago. It’s surrounded by open farmland so it’s a sanctuary for the majority of the wildlife in the immediate area. The owner has done several habitat projects in the past few years to improve diversity and hunting. A food plot was cleared in the SE corner of the property and draws in lots of deer. The timber is comprised of a variety of hardwoods as well as pines. Some areas have had timber stand improvement projects and shrub plantings. See the habitat improvement map. There are thousands of walnut trees on the property that should have significant value someday! Check out the attached trail cam pics from this farm. It’s hard to believe that a property this size has had so many mature bucks on it! The owner also reports that there are good pheasant and quail populations and turkeys as well. A seasonal creek flows through the NW corner and there is one promising location for building a nice pond, which would be the icing on the cake for this property. There are multiple building sites you can build close to the road or in the middle of the property for complete seclusion. This property is a blank canvas in terms of where you could build a pond and house or cabin. This property likely won’t last long. Call Rich with questions or to schedule a showing.
