Peoples Company is honored to represent the heirs of the Freda Koester Estate in the sale of 80 total acres located just west of Coin, Iowa. Farmland is a tightly held asset with ownership often transferring from generation to generation and rarely coming up for sale. This farm has been tightly held by the Koester Family for decades with proud ownership and will be made available to the public via Public Auction. The auction will take place at 10:00 AM at the Elks Lodge in Shenandoah, Iowa.
The farm consists of 77.23 FSA tillable acres carrying a CSR2 of 69.4. Primary soil types include Marshall, Colo-Judson, and Exira silty clay loams. Conservation practices have been actively applied with drainage tile and terracing.
