38 ac Decatur County, Iowa Land Auction


KILOTERRA is proud to offer this Decatur County, Iowa farm at Auction on behalf of owners Gary and Lori Porter.

This property lies just East of Nine Eagles State Park about 3 miles, and West of Lineville, Iowa about 10 miles.  The farm is on the North side of paved County Highway J66.  It is directly adjacent to the 198 Acre property we will have at Auction the same day and location (12 pm January 27th, Lamoni Community Center).  This tract of land offers something for the farmer, hunter, and those looking for a building site or weekend retreat. 

Decatur County, Iowa has arguably some of the best hunting in the country, and this farm has just enough timber to create those opportunities.  There is great habitat in almost every direction around this farm, and a few minor changes could certainly enhance the hunting.  Near the middle of the farm, a small watering hole is already tucked into the main draw.  Installing a food plot nearby and leaving some late season standing crops would enhance the hunting even further.

Nearly 85% of the farm is tillable, with 32.57 FSA acres all currently in row crop.  The farmer has taken exceptional care of the property, and no erosion issues were noted.  The leases have been terminated for 2022 and immediate access is available upon closing.

The rolling hills, utility access, and paved frontage make this tract of land perfect for a weekend getaway or future building site.

Smaller tracts like this are hard to find, and especially those with high percentage of income, good hunting, and great access.  So, make sure you’re in Lamoni for this Live Iowa Land Auction at 1PM on January 27th, or register to bid online.

The Farm will be offered as one single tract.  Live and Online bidding will be available.  Absentee bidding may occur at Auctioneer’s discretion via phone bidding.  Phone bidder registration must occur prior to day of auction by contacting the Listing Agent.  Please see terms & conditions for disclosures and full details.
