RINGGOLD COUNTY IOWA 240

Located in Ringgold County, Iowa, this 240 acre property is available on its own, or with an additional 400 acres adjacent to the East Border.

This farm is a perfect mix of cover to income, with approx. 131 income acres, and the balance in thick timbered draws.  In addition, you’ll find multiple stocked ponds,  a 3 Br Home, and  2 large machine sheds.  For the outdoor enthusiast who wants it all, this beautiful property has had numerous improvements and been meticulously cared for under the current ownership.  Whether you’re looking for a place to entertain clients and friends, or want to move the family out full time, this property could be what you’re looking for.

HUNTING – Pressure/Neighborhood

Starting with the neighborhood, this property has a unique set up.  The entire section of land along the North border is owned by a local farmer who has lived in the area for over 80 years.  He restricts almost all access to his farm to reduce stress on his cattle grazing operation.  Little to no hunting pressure exists there.  To the South, the neighbors are sharing management goals to only harvest the most mature bucks (5+ years old on this farm), and the East 400 acres is under the same ownership as this 240 acre farm.  From an aerial, one can see that nearly all of the heavy timber on this property is sitting like an island in a sea of CRP and Crops, which keeps the deer pulled in from the borders.  They feel even more secure given the fact that every acre of cover has been improved through heavy Timber Stand Improvement.  Very little of the property is visible from any road, and the owner takes extreme care to keep any and all traffic on the property, for any reason, to an absolute minimum.  Evidenced by the multitude of deer visible during all daylight hours, this farm is a hunter’s dream.

HUNTING – Management/History

Extensive food plots (often 10-20 acres) are planted with a mix of standing beans/corn, clover, and fall green fields each and every year.  The crops are left standing to help the deer through winter, and supplemental protein programs have been used as well.  The plots are ideally located  in areas near cover, where the deer feel safe, but also with strategic access to stands/blinds in mind.  With a passion for growing deer to their full potential, the current owner has had an extensive management program in place for over 9 years only harvesting 5+ year old bucks.  A focus has also been on removing a low number of deer, but more of the older management class bucks to allow room for the younger, or higher caliber deer to thrive.  The immense amount of work that has gone into this property to create what it is today is unthinkable.  But the results speak for themselves.  With the last 8 bucks harvested off the farm, the average has been over 170″ Gross B&C, including a giant 196″ buck that lived on the farm from 1.5 yrs old, and a 188″  buck which had a broken G-2 and also a regular on the farm (supporting pictures available).  Multiple deer have been grown from 1-2 year old deer and were visible right up until harvested, which is a testament to the true holding power of a farm.  For the buyer who wants a phenomenal hunting farm, this one has everything you could really want. With the thousands of pictures available for this farm, there is no way to show them all.  With serious inquiries, additional photos and video are available upon request.

INCOME

The farm has 131.2 Tillable acres with an average CSR 2 of 45.6, and nearly all of it has been tiled and terraced (a process which would cost $100,000 today).  In 2016,  the owner converted 111 acres of the no-till row crop into CRP.  The benefit of the added cover and the 10 year guaranteed income made the decision rather easy.  The income generated from the CP 42 contracts is $30,159 annually.  The remaining 20+/- acres have continued to be cropped, or left for food plots, but an estimated $4,000 could be generated from custom farming these acres.  As an option, if interested in maximizing the returns on the property, the current owner would lease back the home and machine buildings for $6,600/yr and the hunting rights at $3,600/yr.  Assuming all income options were exercised, the property could generate up to $44,360/yr.  FSA Maps, Soil Maps, and CRP Income Details are available for download at this bottom of this page.

HOME AND MACHINE SHEDS

The 3Br 2Bath home was built in 1994 and is approximately 1998 sqft.  It sits on a paved county highway road, overlooking a gorgeous stocked pond and features an attached 2 car garage with loads of storage.  All mechanical equipment is believed to be in good working order, but is sold as is and goes with the home.  Out back, there is a 75×40′ Machine shed with concrete floors, two14′ sliding doors, water and power.  A 22′ x 40′ section has been partially finished (insulated and heated), room which would finish out nicely as a man-cave.  Over the hill sits a smaller 24×38′ pole barn for additional storage needs, complete with concrete floors, water, and buried power lines.  Additional details, home disclosures, and more are available for download below.
