Top Shelf Combo Farm In South Central IA



I love working with top shelf farms and especially ones that are located in top shelf managed areas and this farm is exactly that! One look at the aerial and the surrounding area will tell any avid trophy hunter this area is legit. On top of that the immediate area is not only managed at a high level, it also has multiple 400-1000 acre land owners. The owner’s work on this farm has been 2nd to none with all income acres laid out and farmed for longevity NOT short-term max out. The acres being cropped are in the best areas for soil quality AND in areas it will not erode. Hay buffers all the crop ground to keep erosion minimal and the entire NE field was planted to alfalfa this year. Simply put, not many farms in today’s market are managed for the future as this one has been. If you have been in the market for that “perfect 50/50” farm in a managed area, this is a rare opportunity for you.
