This is a dream Iowa property for sure!  Here’s what you get:

  • 1248 square foot ranch-style home that sits on a gentle slope with gorgeous sunset views to the west looking over the lake.
  • large yard that looks like a huge garden-of-eden with all sorts of flowers and various plantings.  Don’t be surprised to wake up in the morning to a large bunch of
  • deer or turkey walking through the back yard along the lakeshore!
  • The home is a very solid home on a concrete foundation built in 1974.  It has 3 full bedrooms and 1 full bathroom and a full basement.  Also a beautiful porch area on which to sip your cup of coffee on in the morning!
  • The home does have an attached garage and there is also a small detached garage building on the premises.
  • The land offers incredible hunting opportunities for a smaller parcel.
  •  Gorgeous and very rare oak/savanna ecosystem with native prairie all around.
  • The tall grasses and thick cover offer outstanding deer sanctuary areas for living in day to day and for security cover.
  • The land offers various successional habitats from early to late stage (large oaks) which offers the ultimate in deer attractiveness!
  •  Edge habitat is very abundant and the early successional habitats offer lots of natural, native browse.
  •  Lots of tree stand and set-up options, especially for a smaller parcels.
  • There are at least 3 major areas that one could establish food plots in.
  • Abandoned roadway along east side of property allows easy entrance and exit into various stand setups – going into the wind to get to your stand!

And The Lake – Ah yes, THE LAKE! (Be sure to watch the fishing video from this lake HERE!)

  • The lake measures right at 6 acres and up to 7 acres (during really wet years).  Here is one pond that is totally justifiable to be called a lake!  (such a lake can easily cost $70,000-$100,000 or more to construct!)
  • The lake has abundant crappie with reports from previous owner of numerous crappie up to and over 16 inches!  Those are huge crappies regardless of where you are fishing in the U.S.!  Right in the back yard!
  • Bass too—and some giant largemouth possible here!
  • In 2015 the owner stocked forage fish – golden shiners and fathead minnows at 10X the normal rate!  What this will do is create a huge buffet of food to resident fish and should make them grow super fast and to potentially huge sizes!   Big fish and I do mean really big fish could easily come from this lake at any given time –  could be a 10 lb largemouth bass or a 3 –4 lb. crappie – how great would that be?  Iowa DNR records show that ponds in southern Iowa consistently produce the most and biggest game fish of any bodies of water in the state!
  • Bluegill and catfish also present and could easily get to huge sizes here as well.

Here is a fantastic opportunity to purchase a great piece of Iowa hunting land along with a nice home and your own stocked lake – all in post-card setting?  What in the world are you waiting for?  We don’t expect this one to last very long!

Call me now if you like to make this one your personal piece of paradise!  Rich 641-919-9026.

Here it is – your Iowa dream farm!  My Iowa dream trophy whitetail farm! 

You can look long and awfully hard to find a better Iowa land parcel for holding and growing big deer!  And you may look and look and look and never find another farm this good!

This Iowa farm for sale isn’t for just anyone.   This isn’t your average Iowa farm.   This isn’t your grandpa’s farm!  This farm is very special and has a history of producing big Iowa bucks!

The habitat components that make up all the acres, the timber, the crp fields and the food plots, are all under intense management.  Forestry crews have gone through most of the forested acres and have hand-picked certain high-quality oaks, walnuts, and hickories that will remain as crop trees.  These crop trees are then thinned around to give them up to 2X normal growth speed and up to 10X the fruit/nut production of a “normal” tree!

Not only does all of this help your timber and ultimately the log value within the timber but this timber stand improvement (tsi) also gives a huge shot in the arm to the wildlife value of the forest itself – new growth sprouts up in areas that receive increased sunlight and this increases deer food and cover exponentially across the forested acres.  The result is that the managed timber becomes much more attractive to deer and other wildlife than neighboring timberland.  So guess where the deer will be?  Bingo!

                                          Van Buren 170 Acre Aerial Photo    

  1. The CRP acres – the Conservation Reserve Acres – 73.8 acres — have been planted to tall native grasses such as switch grass, Indian grass and big bluestem.   This is a huge plus over “normal” crp acres that are planted in cool season grasses like brome or fescue.  The native grasses provide a much more desired habitat and holding cover for all sorts of wildlife.
  2. Approximately 15 acre tillable not in CRP.  This could be rented out and/or used as food plot area.  This could be an additional $3,000 estimated income per yer if cash rented out.
  3. The CRP income on this Iowa farm is estimated to be over $12,695/year.  Many of the CRP acres have corn suitability ratings (csr’s) over 80!  That is incredible and land with soils such as these have sold in the recent past in Iowa for $10,000/acre and more!
  4. This Iowa trophy whitetail farm has a superb mix of timber and tall native grasses and  food plots – yes, the food plots!  They are kept top-notch with appropriate levels of lime and fertilizer, to grow most anything that’s desired!
  5. There is a year-round stream on the property – this serves as a heavily used travel corridor for bucks during the rut! 

Keep in mind — the income numbers on this farm should go up when CRP contracts expire and get renewed or if elected to farm out instead of opting to re-enroll in the CRP program.  CRP contracts for this parcel expire in 2020, 2022, 2025 and 2026  (4 different contracts on this parcel).

Come check this place out before it is too late!  Call Rich at 641-919-9026

  • Approximately 19 acres of CRP paying $118.50 per acre through 2017 == $2252 per year.  (chances would be very good that this would be eligible for a renewal CRP contract at a newer/modern rate when this expires.  Or, one could easily farm or cash rent out the land)
  • There are deer and turkey all over this farm — check out the aerial photo HERE to see how this land spider’s out with numerous fingers and “coves” that would set up perfect for either deer or turkey hunting!

Wapello 35 Acres, m/l

photo of wapello county 35 acres for sale -- google earth view

Listed at $2550 per acre  
This farm has so much “whitetail” packed into just 35 acres that it feels more like 80 acres!  (This was the thought going through my head the first time I walked it! )
Fantastic opportunity to buy an awesome Iowa whitetail farm for just a little bit more than a new diesel pickup truck!  Isn’t that ridiculous?  Guess which one will be worth more in 2 years?  5 years?  10 years?  (I know which one I’m picking!)
This really is a fantastic piece too!   Whitetails are here in great numbers.  The terrain is rolling wooded hills.  Lots of mature hardwoods — with allot of mature, acorn producing oak!  Thick stuff is here too!  The whitetails here have it made.  There no reason for them to go far, that’s for sure!
And this farm sits smack-dab center of some of the finest trophy whitetail producing ground in the United States (Or Canada or Mexico, for that matter!)
And talk about thick stuff…’s  here too, plenty of it in fact!    Great sanctuary cover.  And a creek too runs through this Iowa farm too!   Did I mention an 8 acre field with 52 CSR soil!  This would be a fantastic food plot area (obviously) or you one could use it to create an income stream — This type of soil would normally be expected to rent out for $140-$200 per acre, per year range.
AND did I mention that this Iowa farm land for sale has a killer view on top the field, overlooking the whole farm to the south — and a unreal view of the Des Moines river valley looking out to the north!!   This would be a great building spot, no question, with rural water (rural water is top quality water and is generally considered the most desired water source in southeastern Iowa), and electric service at the road.
And the embankment — oh the embankment!  It goes up along the adjacent road so that no one can see into the farm from the road — that’s right this farm has great access into it from the adjacent roadway to the north,  BUT the farm is hidden by the rising slope of the terrain along the road — making it hard for anyone’s prying eyes to be peeking into this property from the road!    You can have your cake and eat it too!  
This farm really does have so much going for it.  And it should set up great for the bow hunter (or the gun hunter).  With predominate southwesterly winds of the region, the hunter can walk into the winds to get into stand!  Perfecto!
Come take a look at this one before it slips away!   Call Rich at 641-919-9026

    What are the prices for each parcel, Would you sell the 170 without the 40 west of the road ,if yes what is the income with and without the 40 and pricing both ways.
    Is the east 185 acres available on the farm, if yes what is pricing and income?

  2. Post

    The 40 to the west is $3900/acre. The 63 acre portion is $3950/acre and the 170 acre portion is $3950 per acre. There is $12,695 crp income per year coming in on the 170 acre piece. There are also another 15.13 acres on that 170 that could be rented out to a farmer or used as wildlife food plots (acres not in CRP).

    Hope this helps!

    Could you give me the income and the price on the east 185 acres of the 355, also please send the soil map, thank you.

  4. Post

    The income on the east 185 is $2869 per year on 4 different CRP contracts that expire in 2022, 2026, and 2027. My best guess is that upon renewal of these contracts is that the rates would go way up — probably double — closer to that of what newly established contracts are bringing. Or, when they expire, one could farm out the acres for more $ as well.

    There are also two FSA designated tillable fields that are not currently in CRP. One should be able to cash rent these acres out for around $200/acre.

    The soils maps, and tons of other maps and information, are available here:

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks much!
