For lease: 130 acres in Marion County.

Description

Approximately 130 acres of farmable land located along Jefferson Hwy. Property has easy road access for tractors and equipment, but no paved driveway. No structures on property. Has water access for irrigation, but no irrigation equipment. Some sections of the land have tile drainage installed as an improvement.

I am happy to meet at the property to provide a quick tour for serious offers. I recognize that the description sounds vague, but it’s basically a large field right next to the highway that has historically been used to grow crops for about 40 years (have been told the soil quality is very good) and that’s essentially all it can be used for.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Establishing a connection with a tenant that respects the land and practices good farming habits. On my end, my concerns are maintaining the farm in its current condition and making a profit from the amount I receive in rent.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Ideally, I would like to find a use for the land that transcends being merely "I rent this out, someone farms crops on it, both parties turn a profit". I am open to ideas involving more socially conscious endeavors or perhaps growing experimental crops for research purposes, though I wouldn't know where to start with something on that front.


Current Use

Clover, peppermint, grass seed.


Available Water / Irrigation

There are water rights for the entire property. No well - access comes from a nearby lake. As part of the agreement, tenant must agree to irrigate the land occasionally if not regularly to maintain water rights (which means providing their own irrigation equipment).
