Outstanding Recreational Property With Cranberry Marsh In Southwest WI


If you’ve been looking for a piece of property with excellent outdoor recreation and income potential, then you won’t want to miss out on this one! One of the biggest attractions to this property is the cranberry marsh consisting of a 55-acre reservoir supporting 10 +/- acres of cranberry production. This reservoir could support significantly more acres of cranberry beds if the new owner wanted to expand the current operation. The diesel pumping equipment and boom and other related cranberry equipment essentials will be transferred to the new owner if the cranberry operation continues. The current operation sells to both Ocean Spray and an independent handler with 7 +/- acres being under an Ocean Spray A pool contract which would transfer to the new owners. It has been professionally operated for nearly 30 years. The present management may consider consulting for the first growing season if you are new to the business. The marsh also offers many recreational opportunities as well. A new owner could stock the reservoir with bass, northern pike, and panfish for excellent fishing. In the fall and winter, hundreds of ducks and geese migrate down and utilize the reservoir. If somebody didn’t want to continue the cranberry operation, they could convert the 10 acres of beds into row crops or wild rice for excellent waterfowl hunting. Much of the timber consists of mature timber with thick undergrowth providing great cover for wildlife. The deer and turkey hunting on the property are very good. The sellers have had great success over the years harvesting some very nice bucks. A trail system has been put in throughout much of the property providing easy access to and from your tree stands and blinds. The blueberry bushes on this property are very plentiful. Massive amounts can be picked and the best part is they are all-natural with no labor involved other than heading out with the family and friends and filling your buckets with this delicious and healthy fruit! On the property is a 1,200 square foot home that would make a great primary residence or a hunting lodge. There are 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. There are two more rooms which could be used as bedrooms to accommodate guests. A 30’ x 40’ insulated metal building with cement floor and 28’ x 50’ metal shed can be used to store all the equipment that you will need out on the property. If you are interested in taking a look at this once in a lifetime property, give Kyle Schultz or Brian Ruesch a call to schedule your private showing!
