Property Info


Peoples Company is proud to offer the Carroll and Betty Warren Farm - an 85.26-acre m/l property situated just southwest of Carlisle, Iowa. Carroll and Betty purchased this farm in March of 1956. Through their years of hard work and ownership, they raised hogs, chickens, goats, geese, ducks, and horses. Carroll and Betty were known for their quality herd of Holstein dairy cattle, producing Grade-A milk that was sold to Anderson Erickson Dairy. After selling the dairy cows in the mid-1970s, they started a new herd of Charolais beef cattle. Over the past 67 years, The Warren Family has taken a great deal of pride in owning and maintaining this farm.

The farm consists of an excellent ranch home, pasture, tillable acres, multiple good ponds, cattle working facilities, and multiple outbuildings. 28.97 tillable acres m/l are currently in row crop production and carry a CSR2 value of 67.7. Predominant soil types include top-producing Downs and Fayette silt loams. This tract features beautiful, rolling topography, with a nice ridge running through the middle of the entire farm. The property is adjoining the Carlisle Nature Park Trail and has excellent fencing around its entirety. Excellent recreational and hunting opportunities are also provided by this tract, offering the ability to fish, hunt whitetail deer and turkey, ride ATVs, and camp.

The building site and future development opportunity provided by this offering are stellar, being conveniently located in the desired community of Carlisle, Iowa. A new owner is sure to appreciate the secluded acreage setting, timber, pasture acres, and a pond. This parcel offers a new owner the ability to build their dream home and utilize the acreage as a hobby farm, recreational tract or however they see fit. This property is surrounded by large blocks of mature timber and areas in permanent conservation easement that hold and winter a large amount of whitetail and turkey. No covenants or restrictions are placed on the property, allowing you to build or arrange whatever you would like.
