This sprawling Ogle Co 80 boasts nearly 60 acres of tillable or development land and 20 acres of natural woodlands. Currently farmed with certified organic practices (documented), impressive vistas from the northern elevations, timbered woodlands for wildlife habitat, and a rollicking creek make this an exciting and diversified property.
Located on Pilgrim Road, just north of Dixon, Illinois, and slightly west of Lowell Park Road, this parcel is a good farming location for continued organic practices or transition to conventional farming. Current rent history of $320/acre for tillable provides a solid return on investment for the long-term. Buyers may chose to continue in the organically certified programs or transition to more conventional farming. This parcel provides substantial income to offset purchase price, maintains a solid return on investment, and allows the option of participation in the premium organic market.
Additionally, this parcel is ideally suited for home development or siting of a country estate. The many excellent views allow options for hilltop living or nestling your dream home among the mature trees. With ample whitetail deer, turkey, waterfowl, and small game, this is the type of location you can enjoy a constant parade of wildlife in the front yard of your country cabin or country estate.
There are few places so handily located to town for nestling away in complete quiet. A walk on this property always produces whitetail deer from cover, ducks from the creek, and best views in the neighborhood.
Further amenities of the Rock River, Lowell Park, Dixon, and several large public properties are only minutes away. This location is also easily traveled from the Chicagoland area via Interstate 88 and the Dixon Exit.
The tillable property is available for farming in 2020 and consideration will be given to buyers seeking to maintain the organic certifications. Given the many opportunities associated with this property, a discussion is recommended with LandGuys broker LT Taylor to fully appreciate the immediate benefits of ownership and the long-term value.
