Shell Rock Iowa Farm

Worth County, IA


AcreTrader Rating (1)


Iowa is known for having some of the best quality farmland in the world, and this farm is located in the highly sought-after northern region of Iowa. The Shell Rock Iowa Farm is a flat 56-acre parcel located just on the edge of town, adjacent to a major state highway. The presence of local livestock producers additionally increases the desirability and value of the harvest from this property.

This farm has above average soil quality for the county, with a history of high corn yields. The property is well drained and possesses some drainage tile improvements. 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.

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%-50% for the 2020 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.
