This Winnebago County 117 acres of prime farmland is the remaining agricultural base of a local, multi-generation homestead.
Boasting an attractive mix of highly productive soils, including Silt Loam and Greenbush Loam, productivity indices are strong in the 130’s class, contributing to a Class A-B farmland parcel with very favorable subsoil, sustainability, and yield potential.
This tract is highly accessible, with long frontage on Montague Road, Winnebago, and established gravel lane access to the northernmost portion of the property.
Historical corn and soybean yields have been well above average for the area, with the gentle slops and fertile ground contributing to ease of farming while promoting effective drainage. A long-time tenant is in place, contributing to the attentive care of the property from year to year and support of best practices in farming. The lease agreement may be continued with the new owner or discontinued with notice. Lease payments have been timely, providing well-above market return on investment rates.
Additionally, a picturesque meadow and burbling creek contribute to the character and to the appeal of this property. Currently used as a cattle pasture, providing supplemental income and a traditionally rural appeal to the landscape, this property has a great proportion of mixed use, income generating potential, and recreational value. More than being a great place to invest with confidence in solid future value, this property grants the opportunity for all the activities of the country…walks along a beautiful stream, pride of ownership in a working farm, plenty of room to ride ATV’s or horses, and the perfect environment to teach young family members about the outdoors… this property has something for everyone, all within a few minutes of Rockford, Illinois and a very easy drive from Chicagoland areas.
