Tract 1: 17± ac
Located with frontage along County Road 37, this tract offers a perfect mini farm site. This is an elevated site with 780 feet of road frontage.

Tract 2: 37± ac SWING TRACT

Its soils are a combination of Brookston loam and Bristol loamy sand.

Tract 3: 60± ac
Located with frontage along County Road 35, this tract offers a very deep nearly 60 acre farm site. There are approximately 985 feet of road frontage. There is also a small 3+/- acre woods near the back of the property. The elevation also rises up as it goes to the back, then slopes down towards Tract 4. The soils on the tract are mostly Riddles-Oshtemo fine sandy loams.

Tract 4: 25± ac SWING TRACT
Located between Tracts 3 and 5, this tract has a much lower elevation and contains a small open drain across the tract. Again, as a Swing Tract, this tract can only be purchased in combination with a tract with access or by an adjacent land owner. This tract would compliment Tracts 3 or 5 for drainage. Its soils are mostly Rensselaer loam and Brookston loam.

Tract 5: 67± ac
Located with frontage along County Road 36. This tract offers a gorgeous view overlooking the valley created by the elevations. It is mostly elevated along the road and then slopes to the southwest to create the valley which feeds into Tract 4. There is approximately 1825 feet of road frontage. The combination of Tracts 2 and 5 would be a rectangular 100+ acre farm. The soils are mixed on the tract as the elevations change.
