High Point land Company is honored to present the Walter and Dorothy Gelo Estate. This tremendous farm is positioned overlooking the famed Yellow River Valley in Allamakee County, Iowa. We are pleased to offer this property for sale at live public auction on November 15th, 2023 at the banquet center in Waukon, Iowa at 1:00; with online bidding also available.

This diverse property allows it to be offered in 3 tracts offering an attractive opportunity for every buyer:

Tract 1 – 66.45+/- Acres – With great access via an easement through tract two, this tract lays beautifully for any recreational buyer. With Southern access, the harwood ridges are easily accessible, making this tract a deer and turkey hunter’s dream. With multiple locations for potential food plots along this dynamite travel corridor, this farm could quickly be turned  into the hub of the neighborhood with a 5+/- acre food plot added at its center. This valley is a consistent producer for big whitetails, and this farm sets up beautifully to capitalize on that. The sellers have conducted, and included a report stating the current value of the standing timber, which also shows tremendous upside for a future harvest.

Tract 2 – 43.96+/- Acres (43 Acres Certified Cropland) – With great access, this tillable tract has very little waste and consists of highly productive Fayette silt loams; making it a great addition to any farming operation. These soils generate a 55.9 CSR2 and have adequate drainage, making this tract a consistent producer. With terraces in place, this farm has all of the work done, making it a ready addition to your current operation.

Tract 3 – 40+/- Acres (32.78 Acres Certified Cropland) – Also consisting of largely Fayette silt loams, this tract boasts a 69.3 CSR2 across the tillable acres. The gentle slope and great access, allows for this tract to be efficiently farmed with today’s large equipment, and pairs well with tract 2; allowing for a great opportunity to a considerable number of tillable acres in close proximity, which is a rare event in this tightly held neighborhood.

All of this productive land has had tile work done over the years, and has been well maintained by the current tenant. This is a unique opportunity to purchase both tillable and recreational land in the highly sought after yellow river valley, and could likely be a once in a lifetime opportunity at a farm of this quality and location.

*A survey is being conducted and submitted for approval. Acres and property lines are subject to county approval and any amendments to the final acres on each tract will be announced during, or before, the live public auction.
