This gorgeous 60.4+/- acre farm is situated in SW Union County, due East of Kent, Iowa. The property is a certified Tree Farm and features a mix of young and old growth timber. The diversity of plantings includes walnut, jack pine, hybrid poplars, white oaks and many different shrubs and grasses. The CRP contract on the tree plantings has expired and the timber can now be submitted for Forest Reserve (no taxes). Approximately 16 acres are already enrolled in Forest Reserve (ask for more details on what this is if you are not familiar), bringing total taxes to under $375.00 per year.
Water sources include the Middle Platte River, which runs through the property, and a nice sized pond is in the center (not stocked). Several deer were found lying under the shade of the walnuts along the river when touring the property, and the many trails show their frequent traffic on the land. The diverse habitat on the property and commercial crop fields adjacent to this property provide plenty of cover and food for the wildlife here. A couple of the owner’s friends are the only one’s who have hunted the property over the past decade, and the harvest of game has been very selective. The new owners should enjoy plenty of wildlife right away, and with a couple small, isolated food plots, the property could easily be optimized for archery hunting.
With multiple mowed trails, access is relatively easy through the property, and elevation is gently rolling, so walking on foot is no problem.
On the NW corner of the farm sits an open side 30×40 shed, perfect for equipment storage. There is no power currently to the building, but an easement across the neighbor’s driveway allows for easy in and out access.
This is an incredibly unique opportunity to enjoy your own private piece of Iowa land. Don’t let it slip away. Contact Land Broker Chuck Johnson at 515-442-7709 to schedule your private tour.
