Bureau County, IL Recreational and Income Producing Farm

Illinois Land For Sale | Mere words simply can’t justify everything this spectacular Bureau County Illinois farm has to offer! For a buyer looking for a larger square tract of Recreational and Income producing land this piece is a must see! Located between the small rural towns of Putnam and Tiskilwa, IL and near the Illinois River Basin, it has many of the land attributes one can expect to find in that area.

Approximately 56 acres hardwood timber consisting of many large native varieties create fingers with stunning deep wooded draws. Surrounding the wooded fingers you will find 119 acres of grassland which 99 acres of that is enrolled in a government CRP pollinator program earning $26,300 annually. 20 acres of it are tillable and being cash rented for the 2020 crop earning $3,500. The hunting lease brings $3,900 per year. In total this farm currently raises approximately $33,700 of annual income! Approximately $56.000 of oaks and walnuts were select harvested in 2017. Many walnuts and other varieties of hardwoods such as oak, cherry, hickory and more exist. The timber still remains to look untouched! If you love BIG trees they blanket these deep draws and ridges.

The current owner has done an excellent job of maintaining and caring for this farm. Retention ponds, culverts and waterways have been put in place to control water erosion and run off. Mowed paths and trails make navigating throughout a breeze! Want to build a new home or just a small hunting cabin? The locations would seem endless with plenty of available firewood to fill the wood burner!

Wildlife here is abundant! The combination of the beautiful CRP flowers surrounding the hardwood fingers create habitat which can grow and hold mature deer along with many other species of wildlife! Upon inspection of the property numerous deer trails, deer rubs, bedding areas and even shed antlers were discovered! Adjacent properties are of the same terrain with many large agricultural fields nearby. Without pressure, deer and other wildlife would never need to leave the area. This piece is very secluded! The 340 acre Miller- Anderson Woods State Nature Preserve is merely a half mile away by the way the crow flies. If whitetail deer hunting is your thing the multi-directional fingers provide several opportunities to play the wind with those sneaky bucks! I also found a lot of turkey feathers during my inspection and the landowner claims there are many gobblers around!

Natural water is readily found on this farm. I noticed every wooded draw had flowing water and beautiful Senachwine Creek crosses the SE corner of the property. A few retention ponds constructed with standpipes fill with rainwater supplying the local critters with water also.
Located near the entrance there is a sturdy, well maintained 26’W x 60’L x 10’H cold storage shed which could be used to house small farm implements, tractors and UTV’s…No need to build new! The owner has a small amount of implements located on the farm which are available for purchase on an agreed upon price. Electricity is on the property with 200 amp service in the shed.

Hunting, horseback riding, 4 wheeling, snow skiing, snowmobiling, bird watching, nature walks and camping are just a few activities which could be enjoyed here! If looking to build, invest, enjoy or all the above call to schedule a private showing and take a tour of this amazing farm! Plan on blocking out a good chunk of time as it will take a hot minute to see it all!! As stated in the beginning words cant fully explain everything this magnificent piece of land has to offer, you will have to be blown away for yourself! I surely was!
