You’re looking at one of the most prominent investment generating farms for sale in Lafayette County, Wisconsin that’s utterly crammed with crush-worthy bucks! You’ll find this remarkable rural real estate just minutes south of Mineral Point consisting of 168.60-acres of euphoria. This acutely rare recreational property serves as a longstanding investment, handsome revenue generator and one of the very best hunting properties to ever hit the market in Lafayette County.
You’ll find this tract off of Ferndale Road lying east of the roadway with (2) privately gated access points into the grounds. A bevvy of ridgetop worthy spots spotlighted by panoramic views serve as extraordinary build-sites to overlook your prized possession. In a neighborhood rich in farmland spotlighted by gentle rolling hills lies a turnkey and hunt-ready whitetail playground that’s been blessed by none other than whitetail habitat expert, Mark Luster, from The Whitetail Group. An impossibly robust property plan was created to enhance the property’s huntability, increase deer county and harbor trophy-class bucks. From perimeter Miscanthus Giganteus plantings for unfettered access to riches of food plots, ponds and a heavy-dose of timber stand improvement work – the land has undergone a fine-toothed comb approach making it a bona fide whitetail hunters dream. So much so that the property took on its very own attitude booming with cover, stem count and most importantly providing a sanctuary to every deer in the entire neighborhood. This property is a true testament of what an inspired habitat plan can do – especially executed by a person like Mark Luster who has countless 200” deer on his wall.
Of the 168-acres, there’s a total of 64.64-acres enrolled in CRP that’s comprised of (2) contracts:
- CRP #1: 26.50ac, generating an annual income of $4,505 that expires September 30th of this year.
- CRP#2: 38.14ac, generating annual income of $12,854 that expires September 30th, 2032.
You’ll have the opportunity to either renew the CRP#1 contract or simply rent out the acreage to a farmer for row-crop. The current grasses provide a safe-haven for deer during fawning season as well as turkey.
You’ll find roughly a 76-acres of heavy timber boasting of oak, hickory and walnut. There’re (3) dominant ridge systems littered with deer sign as well as multiple springs with a free-flowing creek meandering through the bottoms. A comprehensive UTV worthy trail system circles around the entire property touching every fence line – including a brand-new fence erected along the easterly perimeter. The sellers recently loaded the cargo bed of their side-by-side with a heaping pile of shed antlers last week that were scattered throughout the food plots. Be sure to look at the aerial drone photography once again – the checkerboard of mud worn trails leading to-and-from food plots are not from cattle – they are 100% from deer. In fact, it’s not uncommon to see 50+ deer in the field at any given time nibbling on brassicas, corn and soybeans.
The property has numerous killer hang-on stand setups that were precisely placed in the most favorable positions to get a crack at a giant. Several of these whitetail traps include a secluded kill plot, water hole and licking vines to entice a mature deer into range during daylight. You’ll also find (3) elevated box blinds in proven hot-spots that are used during both bow and gun season. Accessing the land is nothing more than a dream. Coveted top-access allows you to easily sneak into spots along with the miscanthus plantings for screening. If you ever wanted to see a property that is the embodiment of a Whitetail Disney World– this is it.
Find me large private landowners – I’ll find you big deer. The tract is bordered by a massive 400+ acre farm to the North and bordered by a 230-acre to the South and East. Enough said. A portion of the property is enrolled in Managed Forest Land Closed for a significant reduction in taxes – which are only $762/annually.
