For those of you who are following this blog because someday you would like to take the plunge and become a farmer too, here is an affordable farm that would make a great little farm for a beginning farmer.

Looks like the perimeter is already fenced in.

This farm is in Lucas county Iowa and is almost 8 acres with a house and farm buildings already in place and priced at only $54,900. Iowa farm ground is a great investment and you can’t go wrong with this farm. As I heard someone once say, “The good Lord isn’t making any more of this stuff.” The house needs work inside and out but with some sweat equity you can make this investment grow.

The barn and the other farm buildings need some work, but can be restored for a great little homestead.

This 4 bedroom and 2 bath farm is just a few miles north of our farm and is just a quarter mile off of highway 65, a paved road, and would be about a 45 min. commute to Des Moines.

Brick Fireplace

If the septic system is in good shape that is worth 10,000 by itself.

The listing says it had a new foundation not long ago.

  1. It definitely needs some work inside, but you’re right that the woodwork has possibilities. And you certainly can’t beat the price!

    I’d be out there looking at it if we weren’t about to finally (hopefully) close on our place. I’ll keep it in mind if Mr Farmer’s mother tries to screw us over again. 🙂

    It sold for just under $40k. Do you know the new owners? I hope they make an awesome small farm/homestead!
