Holy Cow!! Another Outstanding Plymouth County Farm!! Here we go again! After nearly 80 years the Hodgen’s are offering their family farm. This is really one of the nicest, well cared for pieces in this area to ever be offered at public auction. It also goes to show how rare it is for these prime, long-time family-owned farms to come on the market. It has been in the Hodgen family for 80 years and will undoubtedly be in the next owner’s possession for that long or longer. Ideally located on C-44 and just a ¼ mile from Highway 140 between Remsen & Kingsley makes it super accessible and adds to its farming ease.
The Plymouth County FSA Office shows 242.11 cropland acres with a 117.1-acre corn base with a 184-bushel PLC Yield Index and a 114.6-acre soybean base with a 49-bushel PLC Yield Index. The farm is enrolled in the ARC-CO Program. The Plymouth County NRCS Office and assessors show the main soil types to be Galva with some Colo and Radford. The farm carries a strong 82.3 CSR2 weighted average. Outstanding numbers for the area.
There can be no doubt in the strong future of farming for decades to come. With the past as our guidepost, we can get a small glimpse into what the future holds. Fewer and fewer farms in the future and fewer and fewer hands only mean one thing. The opportunities that present themselves today will prove to be unbelievably important to your family’s legacy and ability to compete in the future. The future will be no easier than the past, however history will show that the foresight, intestinal fortitude, and smart hard work will undoubtedly reward those who forge ahead. I believe you will look back decades from now with great pride and self-satisfaction and future generations will too!
Best of Luck from all of us at Brock Auction Company.
