Sold: Golden Daze Farm
This is a good quality farm that is a combination of 86.2 CSR2 on the present tillable acres plus some expiring CRP in 2016 plus a new enrollment on 15.61 acres in 2016 at an excellent rental rate. The present CRP contract ends in 2016 so the new owner will have options to re-enroll part or all the acres or turn back into tillable farmland. It is anticipated these rates will be in excess of $300/acre and the offer should be made in April 2016. If the owner decided to not enroll the 27.2 acres then there would now be 47.2 tillable acres for 2017 crop year with an average CSR2 of approximately 85. There is a large county tile running right through the property as can be seen on the attachments. A wetlands determination has not been made. The 2016 lease will be cancelled so the Buyer can have full possession for 2017.
As you can see there are good options for this farm as we move forward for recreation, income and farming. It also has a good location 1/4 mile west of Hwy 17 and 2 miles north of Madrid in easy driving distance of the Des Moines metro area. The property was recently surveyed and the corners are marked with pins and lathe. The gross acres is now 65.37 acres and the net is 64.56 acres. A copy of the survey is available.
