THE FARM IS ELIGIBLE TO GROW organically certified CORN, SOYBEANS, OATS, and EDIBLE BEANS.
Seeking to bring a premium, organic-ready Midwestern farm to the public, SPV Lindmark Farm, LLLP (“SPV Lindmark Farm” or the ‘’Farm”) took advantage of the opportunity to acquire a 74.39-acre property located in Central Iowa just outside the town of Ogden. The asset includes 73.95 acres of land suitable for transition to organic tillable farmland. The Farm is immediately eligible to receive USDA organic certification after spending the last 14 years enrolled in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) through the Farm Service Agency. During its enrollment period, there was no application of synthetic chemicals or fertilizers on the Farm. The Farm will receive USDA organic certification in the spring of 2021 after application approval from International Certification Services.
Located in Boone County, Iowa, the Farm is eligible to grow organically certified soybeans, corn, oats, as well as edible beans. SPV Lindmark Farm will plant and grow crops primarily for the production of organic feed grain products. The Farm will be professionally managed by Peoples Company, a nationally recognized firm that offers land management, appraisal, brokerage, and investment services in 26 states across the country.
Based in the heart of the Corn Belt, the Farm is highly sought after by farm operators. This location is associated with strong agricultural production and therefore experiences consistent tenant occupancy.
For the Farm to reach its maximum organic potential and to transition the ground to tillable farmland, SPV Lindmark Farm will undergo a ground preparation process that involves controlled burning, clearing trees and brush, as well as discing of the soil to prepare it for planting, while simultaneously improving soil health. Opportunities exist for yield optimization through soil drainage improvements that can improve crop health and provide better conditions for completing field operations. Pending a successful wetland determination from the USDA, soil drainage projects will be completed in the fall of 2021.
Organic production and sustainable farm management practices aim to optimize annual income as well as optimize capital appreciation on the farm.
