Productive Iowa Row Crop Farm

Palo Alto County, IA


AcreTrader Rating (1)


Iowa is known for having some of the best quality farmland in the world, and this row crop farm is located in the highly sought after northern region of Iowa. The previous owner has recently completed extensive drainage work on the property, and the current farm tenant is utilizing best management practices inclusive of a likely manure-influenced fertility plan. The tenant has recently agreed to a favorable 2-year lease that provides the stated cash yield with upside potential should commodity prices or farm crop yields improve.

Investment Highlights

  • 5-10 year target hold period given stable cash flows and potential for material long-term appreciation.

  • Flex lease could improve investor income by as much as 20%-30% for both the 2020 and 2021 growing seasons should commodity prices go up and/or with strong crop yields on the farm.

  • Existing farm income slightly augmented by payments from area wind energy company for an easement.

  • Palo Alto County has experienced rapid wind energy expansion in the area of this farm recently, with most turbines expected to be operational sometime in 2020. This should create additional wealth in the area for years to come which can be supportive to future land value expansion in the region.

  • The property will be managed by AcreTrader Management, LLC, an affiliate of AcreTrader, Inc.

  • Standard AcreTrader management fee of 0.75% applies annually.

  • Anticipated dividend payments occur on December 15 annually, beginning December 2020.
