80 Acres M/L

Listing #16110



Peoples Company is pleased to offer a uniquely tillable farm located in Central Iowa just south of the Des Moines Metro area. The 80 acre m/l farm is located less than a quarter of a mile north of Highway 92 and 4 miles west of the Interstate 35 corridor. The property includes 70.25 acres m/l of certified organic tillable farmland with an average CSR2 rating of 44.5. Primary soils include Wabash silty clay loam and Colo silty clay loam. After exiting the Farm Service Agency's CRP program in 2019 this property was transitioned into certified organic farmland. Over the past two years, the property has undergone significant improvements including tree clearing, drainage tile installation work, surface ditching, and new oversized field entrances allowing for larger farm equipment. Approximately 74,237 feet of drainage tile was installed in the Fall of 2020 enhancing drainage and farmability. From a fertility standpoint, the farm had an organic chicken litter recently applied for the 2022 crop. The farm has a current lease which will expire after the 2022 growing season.

In addition, the property features a 5 acre building site in the northeast corner suitable for nearly all home types. This already surveyed home site is highly desirable due to its proximity to the Des Moines Metro and is within the Winterset Community School District. The property currently has access to utilities onsite. The property can be used for many uses, including equestrian activities, hobby farming, livestock, and 4-H projects with no covenants or deed restrictions.
