142 Acres | Mercer County, Illinois

Whether you’re looking to invest in productive farm land, with the bonus of world-class whitetail hunting; or want to find the perfect farm to build your dream home on, this tract has a lot to offer.  This 142 acre tract is stunning and is conveniently situated only 1/2 mile south of Hwy 17, near Viola and Aledo, IL.  Ideal pond and lake construction sites!

Excellent soils with 66+ acres currently in ag production.  Great income potential for the investor, and would make an equally terrific addition to any producers operation!  Responsibly managed, with waterways in place for erosion control.  Large fields, with gently rolling slopes make this land easy to farm with any size equipment.  Cash rent currently producing a very conservative $11,550 per year.  Property taxes (in 2012) were $619.

Good quality harwood timber will some secluded pockets of tall grass offer excellent deer, turkey and quail habitat.  Several very nice mature bucks have been harvested on this property and some real dandy’s show up on trail cam, every year.  Lots of contiguous habitat on adjacent farms and in the surrounding area!  This property consists primarily of south-facing slopes and, by enrolling some acres in CRP, you could greatly enhance the attractiveness of this property to mature bucks, while still enjoying a strong return.  Tower blinds in place for firearm hunting, or observation.  Plenty of options for secluded food plot sites.  Though the hunting is very good, now, the potential is almost unbelievable!
