This property has it all, from a babbling creek and ponds to mature hardwood forest and high-producing crop ground.
The tillable acreage is a key asset to this farm. With a high CPI and very fertile soil with drain tile installed, these 180+/- acres produce around 170-180 bushels an acre. Plus, there is excellent access to all the tillable land off of the county-maintained road. In addition to the tillable acres, the property has 28+/- acres in CRP butterfly program, which generates an additional annual income. Two larger cleared areas on the northern half have been hay fields, which are great to hold livestock, or they could easily be converted into food plots for hunting.
The wooded acres offer a diverse population of mature and thick timber that hasn’t been logged since the seller purchased the property, creating cover for all kinds of wildlife. This part of the farm includes a great mixture of oak, elm, birch, and alder trees with considerable undergrowth of numerous types of shrubs and bushes. There are deer trails and markings everywhere you look – telltale signs that there is a significant number of deer that call this farm home. To the north of the property is Chippewa County Forest, opening a world of hunting and recreation opportunities just across the property line. The woods on this property feel endless, giving you multiple areas to hunt, or it can accommodate a larger group of hunters. The land currently earns $7,700 in passive income from a hunting lease.
Additionally, this property has a small amount of wetland for the area that accounts for approximately 25% of the 595+/- acres. There is a beautiful pond in the center of the northern section that ducks and geese visit during the summer months and into the waterfowl season. With the Chippewa River nearby, ducks and geese also frequent the agricultural fields in the fall on their migration south. There is also a babbling creek on the western edge of the property that the seller said is a great place to visit throughout the year.
Given its ideal location, this farm is an excellent opportunity for an investment property or is a place where you can build a home and work the land. Properties like these don’t come around very often, so don’t miss your chance to own a large, world-class tract of land that backs up to the Chippewa County Forest!
