Boone County, Iowa Farmland Auction – Mark your calendar for Wednesday, June 30th! Peoples Company is pleased to be representing the Estate of Donald I. Brandt in the sale of 111.89 total acres m/l located in northwest Boone County between the towns of Boxholm and Pilot Mound. This farm has been a long-time family heirloom of the Brandt family. Originally homesteaded in 1873, this property will be made available for sale to the public after 148 years of family ownership.
The farmland will be offered via public auction on Wednesday, June 30th and as an individual tract. The auction will take place at 10:00 AM at the Leonard Good Community Center at 114 SW 8th Street in Ogden, Iowa. This auction can also be viewed through a Virtual Online Auction option. Online bidding will be available as well.
Located in a strong farming community, this nearly 100% tillable farm includes 109.02 FSA cropland acres carrying a CSR2 soil rating of 75. Farmland acres are considered NHEL (Non-Highly Erodible Land) and do not include a conservation plan. Most recent 5-year crop yields have been 206 for Corn and 55 for Soybeans (APH Production and Yields available). The farm is in the process of being soil sampled and results will be made available to interested bidders. Please contact Agent Matt Adams for more information.
Drainage Ditch #107 flows through the southwest corner of the farm and allows drainage tile to outlet to “daylight”. The open ditch permits water to flow freely and not be hindered by slower underground drainage tiles. Drainage tile maps aren’t available but current improvements include two drainage intakes and seven drainage tiles (two of which are 18" in diameter) that outlet into the drainage ditch.
This tract would make for a great add-on unit to an existing farm operation or investment-grade quality land purchase. There are several competing grain marketing options located nearby including ethanol plants and a variety of grain elevators with close proximity to US Highway 169. Additionally, the property lies just east of Boxholm, Iowa, directly northwest of Pilot Mound, Iowa, and within Section 12 of Grant Township.
Utilities have been extended to the area with rural water offered through Xenia Rural Water and electric service available through Alliant Energy. A fiber optic cable is located on the west side of F Avenue through Webster/Calhoun Co-op Telephone Association.
