The property was originally enrolled through Sept. 2020 but the property owner took advantage of an early CRP enrollment to extend to the 2030 year. The annual payment for 2020 is $2,343 and $3,087 for the next 10 years through 2030. Buyer would have the option to convert these acres back to tillable farmland if preferred, please contact agent for details. Other notable features include electric service through Midland Power Cooperative along the northern boundary of the property and Xenia Rural Water is west of J Avenue.
Abundant food, cover, nearby water sources, and a deep ravine running from the middle of this property to the southeast creating a pinch point should bode well for whitetail hunters. Located in a private location but just over a mile from pavement.
