100+/- ac Farm Land w/ $15k Income, Building Site, and 1,100 acres of Hunting access

This 100+/- acre property is located 45 minutes from West Des Moines in Madison County Iowa, just south of Winterset. The farm has great annual income (~$15K), a beautiful building location, and phenomenal wildlife habitat. Adjacent to the farm is over 1100 acres of thick timber and a 6 acre stocked pond which is available for your enjoyment as well (Clanton Creek Wildife Area). Whether you’re looking for a great investment property, a place to build your future home, or simply something to enjoy with family and friends, this property has the necessary qualities.

For the investment minded buyer, there is approx. $15,000 annual income through a mix of CRP, GRP, and Pasture Rent as follows**:

59.5 +/- acres of CRP – CP2 @ $199.98/acre = $11,900/yr. Expires 9/30/2023.

35 +/- acres of GRP (Grassland Reserve Program) @ $16.50/acre = $577/yr. Expires 08/03/2035

35+/- acres Pasture Rent @80/acre = $2,800 Expires 10/15/17 (May to October Lease)

There are no hunting leases on the property, but that is another potential income stream should you want to consider it.

If you’re looking to build a future home, you must see the panoramic views this property offers. The rolling switch grass covered hills, ponds, and hardwood draws create a the perfect setting. Alternatively, from an investment standpoint, the West side of the property could be sold off to recoup some of the upfront capital and improve the farm ROI.

If you enjoy the outdoors, this farm has so much for you to look forward to. The well established grasses provide excellent bedding for deer and nesting habitat for turkey and upland game. In addition, the CRP-CP2 contract allows for 10% of the acres to be planted to food plots, which would allow you to draw in the deer from the hundreds of acres of surrounding timber. This large timber section is known as Clanton Creek Conservation Area. It is over 1,100 acres of diverse cover, has a large 6+/- acre pond, and is open completely to your enjoyment. The trail system on this farm gives you access the middle of Clanton Creek without significant effort, which allows you to enjoy parts of the property which go primarily untouched. An insulated hunting shack stays with the property.

The current owner has taken excellent care of this farm as evident by the well maintained fences and trail system. The farmland has been improved with terraces and each of the 4 stocked ponds on the farm are very clean and accessible. Whether you’re looking purely for an investment, a beautiful location to build your dream home, or a place to enjoy the outdoors with friends and family, please take the time to look at this fantastic property.
