Peoples Company is pleased to present 80 acres m/l of beautiful Clarke County, Iowa farmland located only 40 minutes south of the Des Moines Metro! Conveniently located less than one mile from the proposed 816-acre Clarke County, Iowa Reservoir Project with Squaw Creek (see Water Supply Maps) along the Truro Pavement between Osceola, Iowa and Truro, Iowa, this combination property of tillable acres, pasture acres, and building structures offers potential for those looking for recreational value, future building sites, or a longer-term land investment.

This combination farm consists of 35.13 FSA tillable acres located on the northern half of the property carrying a CSR2 soil rating of 71.4. The primary soil types of the high-quality tillable acres include Macksburg silty clay loam, Nira silty clay loam, and Clearfield silty clay loam. The balance of the property includes pasture acres comprised of cool-season grasses, wooded draws and fingers, and a small pond located on the southern portion of the tract.

In addition, the tract contains three steel utility sheds (53' x 45' built in 1980; 37' x 40' built in 1976; and 16' x 20' built in 1950) and two grain bins, each built in 2018, with 1,500-bushel capacity. The entrance to the farm is located immediately off the Truro Pavement. *House located on the property will be removed.* Improvements include electric service through Alliant Energy and rural water availability through Southern Iowa Rural Water Association. There is a four-inch main waterline along the Truro Pavement (see SIRWA Waterlines Map). Internet is available in the area through Kinetic by Windstream. There are no covenants on this land, and you can build whatever you desire!
