Diverse Property With Tillable, Lake, Outbuildings And Business Opportunities


This is an unbelievable property with several features and possibilities. It is located west of IL-49, between Cissna Park and Rankin. The first thing you will notice as you pull onto the property is the large 66’x106’ Morton building. This building has numerous features and endless possibilities. It is equipped with eight security cameras that provide coverage both inside and outside. The building has a 200 amp service, septic system, internet, satellite TV, as well as central air and heat in the office. There is also the ability to plug in a generator and run the majority of the building during a power outage. Above the office and gym area, the owner has a very nice apartment. The apartment has a spacious kitchen and dining area, as well as a bedroom and full bathroom. The apartment has its own private entrance, central air, heat, and separate meter, which would allow for a perfect rental opportunity. Adjacent to the office and gym is a large 30’x60’ heated shop area where the current owner stores tools and a large open workspace. This portion of the building also has three dog pens measuring 20’x45, with access to an outside fenced-in area to run. The unheated storage portion of the shed is 30’x106’x18’ and has both concrete and asphalt flooring. This area houses the 7’6”x7’6” walk-in cooler and an additional 30’x27’x10’ walk-in cooler that can be assembled and will need a compressor. There are multiple entryways, including a large 33’ sliding door on the east end. On the north side of the Morton building, there is a large clearing, which would be the perfect building site. The owner has planned ahead for this and installed a new septic system and approved leach field in 2018.

The first of two additional outbuildings is 40’x48’ and is currently being rented out for hay storage. The barn is very historic but very solid and held together with wooden pegs. This building is 44’x40’ with a new metal roof and plywood walls. It is also insulated and has new wiring and fan. A portion of this building is sectioned off and would be a perfect shop area. A small lake is located west of the buildings and is well fed that is approximately 200’ deep and was stocked in 2003 with bass, bluegill, and channel catfish. There is a 100 amp service and an aeration system in place. Several catfish nesting boxes have been installed and marked with floating buoys. The small lake is very secluded due to the white pines and silky dogwoods the seller planted several years ago. This location would also be a perfect spot to build.

The current owner operates a fresh produce farm and has five acres of sweet corn planted in one-acre patches. These are all planted at separate times to allow for multiple harvest times throughout the summer and fall. In addition to the sweet corn, there are two acres of asparagus. The first acre was planted in 2012 and is in production. The second is 6000 new crowns planted in 2021 and will be ready for production in 2022. The sweet corn and asparagus have the ability to have drip irrigation out of a large water tank. The majority of the property is made up of 53.73 acres of tillable, with an average soil PI of 116.5. The different soil types include  Bryce silty clay, Rowe silty clay, and Swygert silty clay. There are also 7.30 acres of CRP that has an annual income of $1,838 through 2026. Both the tillable and CRP produce a yearly income along with the fresh produce.

There is plenty of room for someone to continue to grow this operation with seasonal activities, such as corn mazes, pumpkin patches, or haunted barns. The sky is the limit with this unique property. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime property and is a turn-key operation. Be sure to take time to look through the pictures. The seller is including everything it takes to run this operation, from planting equipment, spraying equipment and much more.
