Sprawling over two miles along the Iowa River stands this expansive farm with world-class hunting and financial upside. Here, the toughest decisions will be what slough to blast ducks from, which thundering gobbler to ambush, or how old you want a buck to mature. Welcome to The Refuge.
Five gates secure this farm that has timber, crop land, CRP, sloughs, old pasture, brush, ponds, and river frontage. The barnyard makes a perfectly secluded but accessible building site. A trail network allows you to access different regions of the farm with equipment.
This property is a very high-ranking conservation site and has gone through the process of applying for Emergency Wetland Restoration. If a new owner pursues, the EWRP or WRP program would greatly increase the value. Call the listing agent for more details.
Expect to have adrenaline-charged duck hunts as they descend into the secluded sloughs. Waterfowl live here year-round because of its combination of food and water availability. With additional infrastructure, the duck hunting could truly be off-the-charts! A preliminary concept map is available from the listing agent.
Be confident that your deer management efforts will provide the results that Iowa is known for; due to this farm’s seclusion, shape, and size. Large grain food plots can be left throughout the fall and winter, to provide late-season attraction and postseason nutrition. The green plot along the river offers amazing views; and is an early replenishment to the deer and turkey from the dormancy of winter.
An annual income stream of approximately $38,590 comes from the farm’s tillable crop acreage and the Conservation Reserve Program, a government-funded initiative that compensates the property owner in exchange for developing wildlife habitat promoting soil and water conservation.
