We have available for acquisition a large, contiguous farm that is currently planted in CRP grasses, but no longer under any active contracts as of September 30, 2020. This farm presents a unique opportunity; the new owner could begin actively farming or choose to potentially re-enroll the acres into conservation contracts with the USDA. This asset lies in Walla Walla County approximately 13 miles Northwest of Prescott, WA, in South-Central Washington State. The physical address is on Wooden Road, Prescott, WA 99348.
This sale of this asset contains both deeded acres and also a Washington State Department of Natural Resources lease. The deeded acres consist of ten tax parcels that, per the Walla Walla County Assessor, account for 4692.05 +/- total deeded acres. Acres under the current Washington State DNR lease with the Seller and to be transferred with the sale, consist of one tax parcel totaling 640.0 acres. This presents the opportunity for a new owner to have 5332.05 total, contiguous acres under their control.
