Property Description

When you think of the Loess Hills in Iowa, this farm is exactly the picture that comes to mind, almost as if it belongs on a postcard! The river-cut and wind-swept ridges of this farm are nothing short of spectacular! The tallest of them towers over the entire landscape at over 235 feet above the lowest elevation of the property. The sheer scenic beauty of the area is captivating while standing on top. Coupled with breathtaking views of the rolling hills to the east and the flats to the west is an excellent habit for wildlife of all kinds. A mixture of warm season and cool season grasses blanket the hills and valleys while hardwoods and cedars cover the north end of the farm.

This 184.5 +/- acres is vast and rugged. Priced accordingly knowing the new owner will need to do some dirt work to create better access as it has not been maintained in some time. For now, the property has been a combination of cattle, CRP, and recreation. There are 21.65 acres enrolled paying $5,200 annually with the ability to be terminated without penalty. The pasture lease was terminated but was approximately an additional $10,000 annually that could be renewed.

Upon viewing there were several turkeys spotted as well as deer and a few pheasants. The majority of the farm has well-maintained fences to retain livestock. There are multiple spots for tree stands and food plots should the new owner choose to do so. This property has all the right features and ingredients to be a big buck factory with some improvements or to continue on as an excellent cattle pasture and CRP farm! Shown by appointment and proof of funds only! For all inquiries please contact the listing agent, Jordan Petersen, at (712) 631-5887.
