The majority of the property is part of a conservation easement that limits its use to recreational activities. The easement will last 30 years, and can go back into CRP or cropland after that period. The easement allows for rotational hay for income and 5% can be put into a food plot. The property is a perfect candidate for the PLOTS (Private Land Open To Sportsmen) program for additional income. A 5 year contract pays $10 per acre per year and a one year contract pays $5 per acre per year. The ground is currently in a one year contract. If the buyer wants to get out of the contract, they can buy out the remainder of the agreement. A lane and one acre building site have been excluded which would make a great building site. Please contact Bryan Bergdale or Lindsey Brown for a copy of easement.
