Rare buildable McLean County, IL farm with exceptional recreational opportunity. The farm consists of approximately 43.21+/- acres and is conveniently located between the Bloomington/Normal and Morton/Washington areas. This property has been meticulously developed into a true trophy hunting farm. Every acre of this farm has had a detailed analysis and plan developed to enhance the wildlife and recreational value. The tillable acres have been enrolled into conservation programs in order to enhance wildlife habitat while providing strong annual returns. The farm lays out well for a home to be built which would have little to no impact on the recreational opportunities the farm provides. Should the new owner wish to convert a few CRP acres into a buildable location they may make the request with the McLean County FSA office after October 1, 2022 who will assist in the partial termination process. There have been multiple Boone & Crocket and Pope & Young bucks taken off this property in recent years. The farm consistently provides trophy deer as well as turkey hunting opportunities. Activities such as camping, mushroom and artifact hunting, biking, hiking, and snow sledding have been enjoyed on this property. A storage shed with bunk room lays at the front of the property. A road system snakes through the farm and over a nice rock bottom creek. The road system would allow for full size vehicles in some areas and UTV or compact equipment in others. The creek meanders through the middle of the property and provides water for wildlife as well as a great place to search for artifacts. There are multiple proven tree stand locations, a Muddy 6’x6′ insulated Bull Blind with 10′ stand, a Redneck 6’x6′ buck palace blind with 10′ stand, Redneck 6’x6′ soft side 360 Ghillie blind, and a large wooden elevated blind. The hard side blinds have been placed on large established food plots. This is a rare opportunity to own a completely turn key farm. The new owner will be able to immediately enjoy the wide range of activities this farm offers.
