Located just North of Afton, Iowa and only a few miles from Three Mile lake, sits this 50 acre recreational property. 20 years ago, the farm was entirely in crops with little diversity in the habitat. Since that time, the property was enrolled into native Tree plantings and has reverted back to a wild place with oak, hickory, walnut, and very thick eastern red cedar encompassing most of the land. Now, the property is a wildlife haven, with plenty of rugged bedding habitat. With crop fields around the farm, water immediately adjacent, and the abundance of cover, this farm has loads of potential. On the West end, there is 13.75 FSA Tillable acres with very high quality soils for the area (75.5 CSR2). This field is terraced, and with some clearing could be returned to crops for income or plots.  A few clearing of trails and clearing of food plot locations would take this property to the next level. In addition, a hilltop location just off the road would serve as an excellent building site, overlooking the neighboring pond and surrounding landscape. If you’re looking for a great place to build, or even just a weekend retreat within a short drive of Des Moines, this is a property worth a closer look.
