Broker's Comments -- This property is ideal for a farming operation with good access for equipment. However, I envision building that dream home in the country with big views overlooking a new arena and horse-barn.  The deep, quality soil with lack of rocks is ideal for riding and very productive for farming. This acreage can easily be cross fenced into separate pastures with the ability to provide underground water to each.  Some clean up is needed around the old homestead site.
