Located just minutes South of Decorah, Iowa, on paved Middle Calmar Rd, these productive tracts of land provide excellent access to local grain markets. John Rodecap had an incredible focus on land stewardship, and conservation, and this land has been incredibly well cared. This is evident in the meticulously managed walnut plantings, contoured farming practices and overall erosion control put into place during his ownership of this farm. The long-term tenant has played an important role in helping to maintain the land by continuing to carry out these best practices.
We are pleased to be able to offer this property in 3 available tracts:
Tract 1 – 45.19+/- Net Taxable (43.95 Certified Cropland)
Offering excellent top access from 225th Ave, this tract has been well managed with contoured farming practices and lays out well to be farmed with today’s large equipment. With .98 acres of CRP producing $136 annually, this tract has been optimized to be as efficient as possible. With productive soil types including Downs Silt loam, this tract will be a solid producer for years to come. This tract generates a 58.9 CSR2 average across the tillable acres.
Tract 2 – 65.15+/- Net Taxable (56.09 Certified Cropland)
With multiple access points, and frontage to middle Calmar Road, this tract pairs well with both tracts 1 and 3. With great Southern exposure, and good drainage this tract is a great addition to any farming operation. With 93% of this tract being comprised of Downs Silt loam, this tract generates an average 66.1 CSR2 across the tillable acres. As an added bonus, there are 8.21 acres of well managed timber as well as 3.59 acres of Walnut plantings that generate $240 annually and will be an excellent investment when it comes time for a timber harvest.
Tract 3 – 69.32+/- Net Taxable (56.27 Certified Cropland)
Generating an impressive 75.3 CSR2, tract 3 is an ideal piece for any buyer looking to expand their farming operation or investment portfolio. This tract includes one unobstructed field with a very gently roll. On the North end you will be pleased with the timbered ridge with strong stands of mature Oaks and walnut plantings. Between the tubed oak plantings, and the manicure walnuts trees, the extra effort that has been put into this timber for a future return on investment is very evident. This tract will generate additional CRP income that will be disclosed once the survey is completed.
The emphasis on soil conservation, timber management and best farming practices hold true on all three available tracts. The Rodecap Family would like to continue the legacy that these efforts have afforded the land, and will be placing deed restrictions on all three tracts. These will limit future residential development, construction of any CAFO’s and mining of the land. It is their hope that this land is farmed for future generations to come.
