PROPERTY INFO

Description

Peoples Company is pleased to be representing the Anderson Family in the sale of their family’s farmland located in Guthrie & Adair County! The land consists of a total of 324.17 Acres M/L and will be sold as three individual tracts. The auction will take place at the Casey Community Building in Casey, Iowa at 10:00 AM, Wednesday, December 11th, 2019. Gunnar and Grace Anderson worked side-by-side and made farming and family a life’s work on these 324.17 acres m/l for almost 50 years with Grace maintaining an active interest in the farm until her passing in 2019. The soil types on this this farmland portfolio are high producing with CSR2 values well above the county averages. The average CSR2 rating for Guthrie County is 61.4 and the average CSR2 rating for Adair County is 64.

Tract 1:  45.9 acres m/l with 40.83 FSA cropland acres carrying a CSR2 value of 80.4.
Tract 2:  74.2 acres m/l with 64.54 FSA cropland acres carrying a CSR2 value of 74.1.
Tract 3:  204.07 acres m/l with 127.17 estimated FSA cropland acres carrying a CSR2 value of 70.8.

All three farms have been improved with drainage tile and intakes ranging in size from 4” lateral up to 8” tile mains (See Attachments for Current Tile Maps).  The farm lease has been a crop share lease and the current farm tenant has been in place for several years. These tracts would be a great add-on to an existing farm operation, an affordable tract for a Beginning Farmer, or a smart investment for the Buyer looking to diversify their portfolio. Grain markets are close with options between Flint Hills Ethanol Plant, Elite Octane, and a wide variety of grain elevators to utilize as well. Any and all farm leases have been terminated and the tracts are open for the 2020 crop year. The farms are located just southeast of Casey, Iowa on 350th Street within the Thompson and Walnut Townships. Mark your calendars to be with us for this opportunity to own your slice of Iowa farmland.

The land will be sold as three individual tracts using the "Buyers Choice" auction method. Tracts 1, 2, & 3 will be sold on a price per acre basis, and the high bidder can take, in any order, any or all tracts for their high bid. "Buyer's Choice" auctioning will continue until all three tracts have been purchased. The three tracts will not be offered in their entirety at the conclusion the auction.
