The Deville Farm consists of approximately 11,377 acres of which 10,264 acres are tillable. This is a very large contiguous tract that has been much improved by the present owner and has an abundance of water sources. The cropland to deeded rat io is 90% which is considered very good on a tract of this size. Of the 10,264 cropland acres, 6,095 acres are precision leveled. In addition, there are five center pivot irrigation systems that are towable to thirteen sites. The average acreage under each system is approximately 110 acres resulting in approximately 1,430 acres of pivot irrigated crops. One of the pivots is owned by a farm tenant and the other four are owned by the previous landowner and are rented to the current tenants. The precision leveled acres are irrigated by wells and surface water supplied by an excellent relift system that is illustrated further in this report. There is opportunity for further irrigation development on the dryland acres.

The 2020 crop is composed of soybeans, rice and corn. Historically cotton and grain sorghum have been grown as well. The current FSA 156 EZ illustrating the crop bases and payment yields can be found in this report.
Presently, there are seven tenants that have nine leases on the farm. Lease information will be discussed upon approval of the prospective buyer.

The property is located in an ideal area for duck and deer hunting, bordering a 61,000 acre wildlife management area. Some hunting revenue is currently being received, but there is potential for additional recreation revenue, owner enjoyment or conversion to WRP.

Also included in this report is a soils map, an aerial map, and an irrigation map for the subject property as well as a few photos of improvements and crops.
Upon approval, each buyer will receive more information including FSA maps, a complete list of improvements and access to other documents relating to access, tenants, recreation and irrigation.

The current real estate taxes are approximately $17,816 ($1.57/acre).

Price: $38,500,000
