147 Acres M/L

Listing #16374



Take a look at this awesome all-around 147 acre m/l recreational farm with home and lots of income. This farm offers a 52'x72' metal shop with living quarters, 32'x72' metal building, and one newer pond. Both the buildings were quality built with stick-built 2'x6' framed walls, full concrete floors, insulation and finish, and full electric wiring. The living quarters feature 1168 sq ft and have 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, and a classic oak kitchen. Inside the home building, there is a custom-built tornado shelter in place.  The home walks out to a concrete patio area allowing you to watch the exceptionally beautiful sunrise and sunset hilltop views. This property is conveniently located off of a hard surface road with additional access from the north gravel road.

The farm has 118.52 FSA tillable acres, of which 85.94 acres are currently enrolled in CRP which pays $19,206 per year. The CRP acres are well established with mature native grasses. The rest of the farm is a mixture of big timbered areas, brushy edges and draws, tree plantings, and a wetland CRP area. The one-acre pond was fully stocked in 2007-2008 with bluegill, hybrid bluegill, bass, catfish, and grass carp.  The pond has a maintenance-free dock and windmill that aerates the pond year round.

The sellers have spent 20-plus years of hard work making this into an amazing recreational farm. They have planted hundreds of trees and bushes all over the farm including an orchard. A buyer can enjoy walking or riding all the mowed trails that will take you to almost any area on the farm. Many pheasants, quail, turkeys, and deer are in this area and on this farm. There are 4 deer stand huts set up in strategic locations. There is also a large garden and 28'x72' chicken pen with a coop. You must come to see this farm to appreciate all it has to offer.
