Description

Boone County, Iowa Land Auction – Mark your calendar for Thursday, August 26th, 2021 at 10:00 AM! Peoples Company is pleased to be representing the Lieske Family Farm in the sale of 231.76 total acres m/l located just south of Ogden, Iowa. The beginning of the Lieske Family Farm dates back to 1918 earning the prestigious Century Farm status, meaning the farm has had the same family ownership for over 100 years and creating a rare opportunity to purchase farmland not available to the public since then.

Growing up on the farm is a special memory for those that were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to do so. The late Norm Lieske knew life on the farm was special and wanted to share the experience with others. So, for the last 10 years of good health for Norm, he invited kids from the Des Moines Metro to visit him in Boone County, Iowa and learn how a real farm works. The kids were introduced to and able to appreciate where food comes from before the current farm-to-table initiative gained popularity.   

The 231.76 acres m/l will be sold as two individual tracts – 80 Acres (Tract 1) and 151.76 Acres (Tract 2). The farms have been operated by a long-term local farm tenant and would make for a great add-on to an existing farming operation or a smart investment for the Buyer looking to diversify their portfolio. Several grain marketing options are located nearby including ethanol plants, large grain receiving facility with railroad access, and a nearby soybean processing facility. Yield history records show production above 10-year average production history for Boone County, Iowa with adjusted trend yields above 200 bushels per acre (APH Yield Information is available upon request). Conservation practices are being actively applied with well-maintained waterways and erosion control measures. The farm lease will be terminated and farming rights available to the Buyer for the 2022 farm year. The farms are located in Drainage District #184 (Tract 1) and Drainage District #173 (Tract 2) with both tracts having access to county drainage tile mains.

Tract 1: 80 acres m/l with 71.10 NHEL FSA cropland acres, which includes 62.93 acres of current farmland acres and a CSR2 value of 84.5. The balance of the FSA cropland acres includes 5.45 NHEL acres being utilized as hay ground and 2.72 acres enrolled in CRP (Conservation Reserve Program).  The CRP program practice CP21 - Filter Strips and is in place until 2028. The annual payment is $900 ($330.89 / Acre). The primary soil types include top producing Clarion loam, Webster clay loam, Nicollet loam, and Canisteo clay loams. This farm has been a strong producer with adjusted trend yields for corn at 207 and 55 for soybeans (APH Yield information available to interested bidders). This farm is located on the west side of E Avenue in Section 15 of Beaver Township.

Tract 2: 151.76 acres m/l with 135.85 FSA cropland acres, which includes 133.65 acres of current farmland acres and a CSR2 value of 85.9. Primary soil types include top producing Clarion loam, Canisteo clay loam, and Nicollet loam. The balance of the FSA cropland acres includes 2.20 acres enrolled in CRP (Conservation Reserve Program) 2028. There are a total of 13.75 acres enrolled into the CRP program practice CP22 - Marginal Pasture Land until 2028 with an annual payment of $1,532 ($111.41/acre). Contact Agent for details regarding mid-contract management. A wetland determination has been completed for this tract and there is a determined wetland in the northwest consisting of 0.70 acres. The balance of cropland acres is not considered wetlands and all tillable farmland acres are considered NHEL (Non-Highly Erodible Land) except the tillable acres north of the creek and timber area. This farm has been a strong producer with adjusted trend yields for corn at 200 and 55 for Soybeans (APH Yield information available to interested bidders). This farm is located southeast of the intersection of F Avenue & 270th Street in Section 36 of Beaver Township.

The farmland tracts will be offered via Public Auction and will take place at 10:00 AM at the Leonard Good Community Center at 114 SW 8th Street in Ogden, Iowa. The land will be sold as two individual tracts using the "Buyers Choice" auction method on a price per acre basis, and the high bidder can take, in any order, one or both tracts for their high bid.
