320+/- Acres Chickasaw County, IA
320 Acres +/-
High Point Land Company is honored to present the Carolan Family Farm. Located in Chickasaw County, Iowa in highly coveted Stapleton township sits this immaculate 320+/- acre fully operational family farm. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a working cattle operation paired with a large contiguous tract of highly productive tillable land.
A long lane coming off paved Union Ave provides access to the heart of this farm where you will find a beautifully updated farmhouse. This 5 bedroom, 2 bath home with 2,448 sf of finished living area make this a fantastic place to call home while serving as the perfect headquarters for a successful farming operation. While keeping all the charm of the original farmhouse, this home has had multiple updates over the years, including appliances, fresh paint, flooring, as well as the addition of a 432 sf sunroom overlooking the entire farm, making this home the perfect place to gather.
The rest of the acreage is the culmination of over 30 years of an extremely successful cattle operation. Everything from the design of the sheds to the layout of the alley ways, allows for one person to work cattle without ever entering a pen. With over 12,000 sf of this operation under roof, concrete in all the pens, self-waterers, bunk feeders, fuel tanks, on site generator, as well as a commodity shed and liquid protein tank; make this turnkey operation capable of handling 350 head of cattle. Walking through these facilities, it is obvious that they have not only been built to last but have been extremely well planned with no small detail spared. An additional 30×75’ machine shed also provides adequate storage for equipment, and two 6,000 bu storage bins with floor stirrers complete the operation. With all the overhead wires buried, this large farmyard is both truck and equipment friendly.
The land itself boasts some of the most productive soil types in this region, including Ostrander Loam, Clyde Floyd Complex, as well as Kenyon and Floyd loams. These quality soils accompanied by aggressive tiling over the years have made this tillable land a continual producer. The extensive tile projects spanning from 2007 to 2013 cover nearly the entire farm on 45’ spacings. With high tensile fence surrounding the current pasture and the parameter, the new owners could continue to run this operation as it has been successfully done. The sheer size of this property provides incredible potential, currently with 267.13 acres of certified cropland, there is potential for additional pasture acres to be converted to row crop if the new owners desired.
This farm will continue to remain in operation until it is sold and could provide a unique opportunity for someone to step into a turnkey operation. A property of this size, quality, and potential rarely comes available; and could very likely be a once in a lifetime opportunity in this area.
