Property Description: 144.23 total taxable acres. 92.71 acres is cultivated cropland in several fields with the majority of the cropland being contiguous at the east part of the farm. The cropland was in corn this last year and is now sown to wheat. The buyer will receive the landlords 1/3 share of the 2023 wheat harvest.  1.94 acres is waterway.  The balance of 49.58 acres is native grassland along a spring fed draw. The grassland is fenced for livestock and the spring runs continuous, even through very dry conditions like we had this year.  The draw is lined with various kinds of trees and the nearby hedgerows provide shelter and habit for both livestock and game.  Deer will be seen every time you go on this farm. The land is signed into the nearby windfarm lease. There will be no tower on this land however, it does receive an annual lease payment.

This is a good and diverse farm where the combination of cropland and grassland acreage allows for multiple use of the land in various seasons.   It’s a terrific place to winter livestock having shelter and running water along a county gravel road for everyday access. If you want to enhance the land for hunting this land offers all the essentials for a wildlife haven at a location you can easily access.
