An 1,100-acre farm in east-central Indiana has been put on the market which could attract some aggressive bidding. Columbia City-based Schrader Real Estate and Auction Company, which is conducting the auction, says Lawton Farms in Union County has some of the most productive farmland in the state.
The majority of the land is in Union County, with some located in Wayne County. Schrader says the land has some of the highest soil indexes in Indiana, which indicates high crop production capability.
The auction company says the farm along the Ohio state line will be offered in 13 tracts.
“You rarely see a farm this size with soils of this quality, mostly contiguous and all within two miles,” said R.D. Schrader, president of the auction company.
In addition to the quality and size of the property, Schrader says the farm includes 250,000 bushels of grain storage and two newer barns.
The auction is scheduled for August 16 at the Wayne County fairgrounds in Richmond. Click here to learn more about the land.
