274 Acres +/-
Live public auction on November 10, 2021 at the Harpers Ferry Community Center at 1:00 PM.
High Point Land Company is honored to present the McCormick Family Century Farm in Allamakee County, Iowa to be sold at live public auction on November 10, 2021 at the Harpers Ferry Community Center at 1:00 PM. This incredibly diverse farm located on Hwy 76 consists of 274+/- total Acres with 97+/- of that being certified cropland. We are pleased to be able to offer this property in multiple tracts.
While the tillable land has been a great producer for the family for many years, there are boundless opportunities for the non-tillable land on this property. The mature oak shaded pastures, including a large spring fed pond, are ready to be put back into operation.
This area is known for giant whitetails, and strong turkey populations. With the addition of strategically placed food plots, this farm could pull deer for miles from the surrounding huge blocks of timber. The mature hardwood ridges with harvestable timber, also offers an instant return on the investment opportunity with a potential timber harvest as well as provide incredible habitat for wildlife.
Tract 1- 157 +/- Acres (79+/- Cropland) – Located on paved Hwy 76 sits a beautiful acreage with mature trees, beautiful views and multiple outbuildings ready to be put back into operation. Included in this acreage are two homes, one being a 3-bedroom 2 bath 1733 Sq ft home and the other being a 3-bedroom, 1 full bath 844 sf home. The additional outbuildings in useable condition with an abundance of concrete, there are numerous possibilities with this acreage.
The soils on this farm consist largely of Fayette silt loam and generate a 50 csr2 across its entirety. This farm has been well managed using contoured farming practices and a sound crop rotation. The non-tillable land could be reclaimed as pasture land, or the new owners could enjoy the recreational benefits as this farm is loaded with deer and turkeys (see trail cam photos). With multiple Southern access points, this tract lays out perfectly for the addition of strategically placed food plots for entry and exit.
Tract 2 – 22 +/- Total Acres (17.8+/- Cropland) – Located just off of paved Hwy 76 with access off of Old Junction Rd, this tract would be the ideal addition to any farming operation looking to pick up some additional acres. There is also potential for this tract to be used as a buildable location for a forever home or additional farming operation. With close access to multiple trout streams, public hunting land, and the Mississippi River there are multiple development opportunities beyond farming this land.
Tract 3 – 95+/- Total Acres (w/ Pond) – Located just a quarter mile off of Hwy 76 with no road frontage sits this incredibly diverse tract that has been historically utilized as pasture. At its center sits a nearly 1-acre pond, surrounded by mature oak groves, and walnut ridges. With mature trees ready to harvest on this tract, the new owners could have an immediate return. With portions of this tract being baled this summer, this property is ready to go back into pasture if desired.
With multiple locations to potentially build a home, cabin or have a camper, this tract would be the ultimate private retreat. The combination of the pond, multiple location’s for big food plots (with the potential to pull deer for miles), and strategic stand locations with great access; could make this an incredible hunting property.
Tract 4 – 274+/- Acres (97+/- Cropland) – Tract 4 shall be an offering of the property in it’s entirety; including tracts 1 thru 3.
