Property Description

Mercer County, Missouri, has become one of the premier geographical destinations for whitetail deer enthusiasts around the country. In close proximity to Iowa, this 195 acre offering is undergoing a substantial transformation to provide exceptional recreational opportunities. There are open acres on the west side of the farm that are currently being cleaned up in order to convert it to tillable row crop production. The eastern portion of the farm has been grazed in the past, but the ground lays very well to convert much of it into crops as well. The sellers are looking to establish approximately 70+ acres in row crop. The sellers will be converting all feasible open acres, on the west side of Highway A into row crop production this spring. This certainly increases the income profile for the farm. With the cleanup effort and extra soil amendments that are needed this first growing year, the cash rent will be a bit lower than normal and will be set at $100/acre. Subsequent years should see a significant increase. The sellers currently farm other ground in the area and would certainly entertain a long-term contract to continue to farm this in the future. There are 28 acres of the property that lies east of Highway A. Approximately 10+ more acres here could easily be planted if desired. This part of the property would make an outstanding home build site. With blacktop frontage and rural water, electric, & high-speed fiber internet available at the road, running utilities would be cost-effective. The build site sits on a ridge top, overlooking a 1 acre pond with million-dollar views. Sunrises would be magical here. It should be noted that the sellers may consider splitting off the 28 acres off from the rest of the farm if the entire 195 acres is beyond your budget.

The deer sign on this farm is simply amazing. Beaten down travel corridors, rubs, and scrapes are all over this farm. There is no doubt as to the quality and quantity of game that call this place home. With access from the east and the north, this farm is very huntable, regardless of wind direction to allow you to slip in and out of your ambush locations without detection. In addition to the crops, there are areas in the middle of the farm that would make ideal food plot locations. These food new sources will be a dynamite draw to this farm for deer and turkey alike. There are six ponds on the property along with a seasonal creek which provides secluded and consistent water sources throughout. This farm will have the perfect balance of cover, food, and water that hunters seek. There are very large blocks of timber that border this farm on the south, west, and north sides. With crops established this spring, this farm is going to pull deer in from a long ways… and keep them there! Avid outdoorsmen will take one step on this property and know immediately just how special it will be. Call David Brothers for your private tour at (660) 240-3243.
