Entire Farm Description:

CRP farm with CRP expiring 10/2024 with 75.7 CSR2 rating. Re-enroll into CRP program or convert into crop production with this farm.

Located in the heart of Southern Iowa's big-buck country, this property provides lots of different opportunities to the new owner, with quality yearly income. The property is enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) through 10/2024. This gives great options for the new owner to re-enroll it or put it back into tillable production. Or a mixture of both! Nonetheless, this may be a great property for you, whether you are looking for a quality hunting property with a solid return or just looking to add to your farming operation.

As you approach the property on 60th Avenue, the north side, you will see the quality of habitat that this area provides. Not only is it a great whitetail habitat, but there is also plenty of cover for upland and small game hunting. Pheasants were seen flying over the native grasses the evening the property was photographed. A trail network has been mowed to create easy access to different parts of the farm. There is a quality diversity of native grasses and forbs throughout this CRP mix. Smaller trails have also been mowed, turning into natural wildlife trails and corridors throughout the property.

The southern border of the property is the meandering White Breast Creek. Even during the dry year, there is water flowing down the creek. With the creek, there are quality timber edges that are tearing up with scrapes, rubs, beds, trails, and all sorts of wildlife sign. One established annual food plot could easily be re-established for the 2024 season. There are multiple heavy wildlife crossings along the creek banks. With several bends in the creek, waterfowl opportunities could be on the property.

There are currently 43.7+/- acres in CRP that offer a payment of $237.50/acre, which comes to $10,378 per year. The property has also been leased out for hunting this year, which could provide additional income if the new owner desired. The CRP contract expires after 2024, giving the new owner options to put all or portions of the property back into tillable production, potentially increasing the annual return on your investment. With a quality average CSR2 soil rating of 75.7, this could be a great source of revenue for the new owner. The current owner has recently worked on removing invasive woody vegetation for the CRP program so that the new owner will not have to worry about this initial maintenance.

If hunting isn't your thing, and you want a solid investment, country acreage to camp, ride ATVs, float the creek, horseback ride, etc., the flat terrain makes access easy throughout most of the property for any outdoor enthusiast.

If you've been looking for a quality hunting property in Big Buck Country that gives you a yearly return or would like to add to your farming operation, this may be just the property for you!
