Fountain Creek Farm
Vermillion County, IL
The Fountain Creek Farm is an improved corn and soybean farm in Northeastern Illinois located 120 miles south of Chicago. This farm had extensive drainage tile work completed in 2017, has road frontage on three sides, and consists of 95% tillable acres. This farm has a Productivity Index Rating of 120.4 (out of a range of 47 - 147) and boasts historical crop yields that in the past have exceeded county averages. The farm is currently rented through 2021 and is located a short drive from several other AcreTrader investments.
This investment also includes a “flex” lease arrangement that provides an annual cash rental amount (see the financials tab which includes only this cash portion) plus an additional payment should commodity prices or farm crop yields increase above a pre-set threshold. This structure provides stability to the farmer while also allowing investors to share in any upside potential in above-average crop years.
5-10 year target hold period given stable cash flows and potential for material long-term appreciation.
Flex lease could improve investor income each growing season should commodity prices go up and/or with strong crop yields on the farm.
The property will be managed by AcreTrader Management, LLC, an affiliate of AcreTrader, Inc.
Standard AcreTrader management fee of 0.75% applies annually.
Anticipated cash distributions occur on December 15 annually, beginning December 2020.
