Peoples Company is pleased to represent the Carruthers family in the sale of their 430 acres m/l of diverse southern Marion County, Iowa land. Located five miles directly east of Columbia, Iowa and just one-half mile north of the Marion/Monroe County line, this combination property offers abundant recreational opportunities combined with a strong ROI through the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP).
This recreational tract contains ample food sources, mature blocks of hardwoods, and plentiful water sources to support a strong population of southern Iowa deer, turkey, and pheasants. With the heavily timbered draws combined with the North Cedar Creek and Hickory Creek located in the southern portion of the property, there are a number of pinch points to hang tree stands throughout the property. This tract presents exceptional hunting opportunities for the avid outdoorsman and whitetail hunter, as this area of the state is known for producing record Boone and Crockett whitetails, including the "Iowa's Walking World Record."
Currently, the property has 259.13 acres enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). The program is enrolled into three practices which include 25.43 acres of CP38E-25 (Rare and Declining Habitat) expiring in 2030 with an annual payment of $4,120 ($162 Per Acre), 24.06 acres of CP21/22 (Filter Strips/Riparian Forest Buffer) expiring in 2023 with an annual payment of $7,340 ($305.01 Per Acre), and 209.64 acres of CP23 (Wetland Restoration on Floodplains) expiring in 2024 with an annual payment of $49,803 ($237.56 Per Acre).
