161 Acres M/L

Listing #16207



Peoples Company is honored to represent the sale of 161-acres known as the Richard “Dick” Arganbright Farm in Guthrie County, Iowa. The Arganbright Family is an established name in the area with deep family roots and a family tree that consists of 10 siblings and over 50 nieces and nephews. This farm has been a part of the Arganbright family heritage for several decades and the first time it is available for sale since the family took ownership.

The farm is located just southwest of Panora, Iowa and is accessed by a 33 ft. wide owned driveway from Redwood Avenue. The gently rolling farm is a total of 161 acres and consists of an estimated 115.99 FSA tillable acres carrying a CSR2 value of 67.8.  The primary soil types are Sharpsburg silty clay loam and Shelby clay loam. There are 37 acres of pasture that includes a block of heavy timber that would make for a smaller, but mighty, hunting tract. An additional parcel of land is available and adjoins the east side of this tract. This tract consists of 40.74 Acres and is Peoples Company Listing #16208.

This farm is in a desirable neighborhood with close proximity to Lake Panorama and a 40 minute drive to the western edge of the Des Moines Metro.  A great opportunity for an existing farm operation to add acres or a smart investment for land investors looking to diversify their portfolio. There are several competing grain marketing options located nearby including ethanol plants and a variety of grain elevators. Both the farmland and pasture are leased for the 2022 farm year by members of the Arganbright Family and would be interested in continuing their tenancy on the farm. Located in Sections 12 & 13 of Valley Township, Guthrie County, Iowa.
