Here's your chance to own a sweet 180+/- acre hunting/recreational farm in Crawford County's big buck country. Located just 2 miles south of the river town of Ferryville and overlooking the mighty Mississippi, it's perfect for your nature-based adventures. The current owners ran an organic dairy farm here but have decided to retire and sell the farm.
The 150+/- wooded acres offer varied terrain from hidden valleys to rolling ridgetops. A trail system provides access to the ridges where you'll enjoy the views of the river and mature timber while awaiting your trophy. This is enrolled in the Closed Manage Forest program which helps keep the taxes manageable. In one vale, a class 1 trout stream winds its way approximately 500 feet through the forest.
In two valley fields, you'll find approximately 25 acres of organic open ground. This is the perfect spot for wildlife food plots, natural prairie or raising a few head of livestock.
The property is accessible from two roads but the current homesite is located on a dead-end road. The public road is maintained nearly to the front door but being on the end of the road in its own valley assures privacy. The home is a classic 4 square farmhouse. The main floor offers a large living room, eat in kitchen, family room and laundry. Upstairs, you'll find 3 bedrooms and a full bath. This home would be an ideal hunting lodge or permanent residence.
The outbuildings provide many options. A classic two-story red dairy barn gives a country feel and offers housing for livestock. A newer freestall barn could be used for cattle or storage. Being so close to the Mississippi River, one could envision renting it out for boat storage spots. A farm wouldn't be complete without a machine shed and this property has a large one.
If you want to explore more than 180 acres will allow, the nearby Mississippi Valley Conservancy land offers almost endless hiking and the Mississippi River and countless trout streams will meet all your fishing needs.
