Your search for the perfect recreational piece ends here! This property provides a beautiful build-site with plenty of room to grow, and prime whitetail hunting right in your background

This 39.26+/- acre farm lies just West of Mt. Ayr, Iowa right off of Highway 2 providing great access, and a minimal amount of gravel. The farm consists of a mixture of tillable ground, mature hardwood timber, a year round creek, and cleared areas for implementing food plots. Throughout the property is a cleared trail system for full access, and ATV riding opportunities. On the road sits a beautiful build-site with spectacular views of the farm. This is the ideal place for someone who enjoys the outdoors and is looking to build their dream home in the country!


Property Features:

This Ringgold County gem has everything you need and is set up ready to go. Currently there are 18+/- acres in a crop rotation and brought $2,850 cash rent in 2023. The bottom crop field has oversized drainage tiling which were put in place in last year. Nothing beats income on a future home-site with so much more to offer!

When you experience the peaceful setting and see the view from this part of the farm, you will be ready to build your dream home.  The site features a 250’ x 250’ concrete pad with 200 amp power service already installed. There is a 100 amp sub panel with camper outlets, and a 60 amp power supply stubbed for a sea container or another rv.  Rural water has been run, with a water hydrant at the camper pad.  These improvements make this property perfect for those looking to build, or provides immediate convenience for the recreational user.   

Back on to the West, past the crop field, is 15+/- acres of hardwood timber consisting of oaks, cedars, and black walnuts. Winding through the timber is a year round creek that cuts across the farm, with established crossings for ATV/UTV’s. On the West side of the creek sits about 2.5 acres of pasture that would be perfect for putting a food plot in place with bedding and water close by. The cedar thicket in the Southwest corner of the farm provides ample cover for whitetail, and the timbered draw provides a natural funnel for controlling deer movement throughout the farm. You will also notice mature oaks along the creek, that have been proven to hold roosting turkeys in the spring months. The trail camera pictures from this farm show all of the potential this farm has, sitting in a tried and true area for growing insanely impressive Southern Iowa bucks. 

The established trail system that has been put in place provides ample access to the back of the farm without any crop disturbance. Enjoy an adrenaline filled ride through the timber on your ATV’s during the summer, and access all of your deer stands and trail cameras in the fall! With deer hunting, recreation opportunities, income production, prime whitetail and turkey hunting, and a gorgeous build site, this farm is a rare gem. There really isn’t a better combination farm available in the area where you can have all this in one package!
