Income Producing Timber, CRP And Hunting Farm In Northwest MO


Well-rounded farm that combines multiple income sources, diverse habitats, abundant wildlife, and numerous recreational opportunities. Cash is king, and this property will generate $13,782 cash income in 2020 from 89 acres of CRP at $10,182 annually, plus $3,600 in annual pasture rent. If a new owner decided to lease the residence and the hunting rights, the property could produce $12,000+ in additional annual rental income. Wooded areas of the property have abundant walnut, oak, and other timber that is ready for harvest if a new owner chooses. Some hunters subscribe to the myth that a productive cattle farm can’t attract and support wildlife-a foolish notion this farm blows out of the water. Hunting here will prove excellent for turkeys, upland birds, small game, predators, and, especially, the big bucks that the area is known for. Situated near the front of the farm is a charming farmhouse accompanied by two outbuildings- an enclosed metal pole barn and wooden barn. The 1200+ sq ft, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home has been well cared for. Furthermore, both the residence and barn have been updated with stylish and practical metal roofs recently. Access is outstanding with good gravel road frontage along most of the west boundary. Moreover, access to Highway 136 proves a great convenience, with just a few minutes travel putting you in Bethany or Princeton. The property lies in the Harrison County RII (Bethany) School District.
