Listing #16273



Peoples Company is pleased to offer this Burt County highly productive farm ground consisting of 315.14 dryland acres m/l located 2.5 miles from Lyons, NE. The farm has been in the family for three generations and was one of the first farms in the area to implement soil conservation practices in the 1950's, continued to this day. The farm consists of 296.60 FSA cropland acres with the remainder in beautiful, wooded draws along streams and ponds. The farm carries a NCCPI overall rating of 67.9 with primary soil types of Crofton silt loam, Nora silt loam, and Alcester silty clay loam. A corn and soybean rotation has been used across this farm with minimum/no-till farming approach. A five year terrace reconstruction upgrade was completed in the spring of 2022. This investment provided an upgrade to the soil conservation effort that began in the 1950’s on this farm. The project also provided improved farming accessibility for today’s farm equipment.

The beautiful, wooded streams and three ponds have been preserved over time and serve as a watershed for the conservation practices during the farm’s history. Surety identifies 5.61 acres of wetlands consisting of ponds, streams, and surrounding areas (NRCS wetlands designated acres may/may not match Surety identified wetlands). The five (5) year terrace project was conducted with the assistance and direction of the Burt County NRCS. Terrace drainage tile to the watershed provides water control and allows for the operation of today's farm equipment. The terraces vary in height from 3' to 6' and are populated with perennial grasses. The terrace grasses provide coverage for soils but also encourage bird and wildlife habitat. The ponds have not been stocked with fish but provide local wildlife a haven and refuge for numerous animal species. One of the streams has never stopped flowing from an underground source (to the owner's memory) even in the coldest of weather or during dry spells, a truly spectacular natural resource flowing north! The farm has seen significant wildlife including turkey, deer, and coyotes but has not been hunted by the current owner. But if you enjoy hunting after the crops are harvested, this property is for you!

The farm has a current lease for the 2022 crop season and will become available for farming in the 2023 crop year. The opportunity for additional 2022 income from this year’s crop is due to a flex lease addition to the cash rent portion of the contract. While the flex lease bonus is not guaranteed, a  Dec 1, 2022, payout is possible if the flex lease requirements are met. The current lease officially ends on February 28, 2023.
