PROPERTY INFO

Description

Greene County Land Auction!  Peoples Company is offering 153.07 gross surveyed acres of high quality farmland located in Greene County, Iowa and to be sold as two individual tracts. The auction will take place on Friday, September 27th at 10:00 AM and be held at the Scranton Community Center in Scranton, Iowa. Rare opportunity to bid on farmland in an area where land seldom makes it to the open market and that has been owned by the Morlan Family for almost 60 years.

Tract 1 consists of 67.73 surveyed acres with 65.89 FSA tillable acres and a CSR2 rating of 80.8.
Tract 2 consists of 85.34 surveyed acres with 79.08 FSA tillable acres and a CSR2 rating of 85.6.

Both tracts 1 and 2 have been surveyed and surveys will be recorded prior to closing. The property boundaries for both tracts include a buffer between the tillable farmland and the timber acres that border the farmland to limit wildlife crop loss. Both tracts also have a high percentage of tillable acres and include top producing soil types including Webster and Nicollet Loams. There are several grain marketing options nearby with a variety of grain elevators and ethanol plants to deliver grain to. Conservation practices have been actively applied with established waterways and terraces to prevent erosion. Tracts are located just northwest of Scranton, Iowa in Section 17 of Kendrick Township and have great access to US Hwy 30 and Co Rd N58 by way of gravel roads 185th Street and C  Avenue.

The farmland will be sold as two individual tracts using the "Buyers Choice" auction method. Tracts 1 and 2 will be sold on a price per acre basis and will be offered through the sales method of "Buyer's Choice", whereas the high bidder can take, in any order, any or all tracts for their high bid. "Buyer's Choice" auctioning will continue until both tracts have been purchased. Tracts will not be offered in their entirety at the conclusion the auction.
