38 Income – Producing Acres in Henderson County with Home and River Access
Illinois Land For Sale | Traveling North on County Road 3 from Oquawka you will pass by the 89-acre Delabar State Park. Traveling on north approximately 3/4 of a mile you will arrive at the property. Turning left onto the sand/dirt lane you will immediately enter a picture-perfect road through the standing timber. The 8.1-acre field abutting County Rd 3 is currently enrolled in the CRP Pollinator Program. Driving down the lane you will see the very thick timber on your left. Coming out of the timber you will see the 14.8 ac field that is also enrolled in the Pollinator Program. Combined, the 22.9 total acres produce a yearly income of approximately $5,000. The fields provide vital habitat for honey bees and other pollinators.
With abundant acres of legume-rich forage and diverse wildflower plantings, CRP lands offer hives a safe haven from the pressures of modern agriculture supplying an abundance of pollen and nectar that keep colonies healthy and thriving. This also creates a great source of food for turkeys and bedding for deer. They are riddled with tracks and signs of deer and turkey. Continuing down the lane you will come to the 1.5 stories, 1,198 sq. ft. house that was built in 1940. There are three outbuildings currently being used for boat trailer storage by local river-goers. From the side yard, you have a view of the river.
Although this property does not have river frontage, there is a swing gate at the back of the lot to a state-owned road. The road leads right down to the river and a boat ramp.
