LAND AUCTION – 12/03/2019

Bill Freed spent a lifetime, after returning home from WWII, building a farmland portfolio over the next 75+ years. Always working on improving the soil and productivity of his land, he was the first full-time farmer selected as the McLean County Conservationist of the Year, in 1985. Upon the passing of Bill and his wife, Ruth, they have directed their land to be sold.  8 Farmland Tracts and 1 Buildable Lot, all located near Lexington in McLean County, IL will be offered at public auction December 3, 2019!  Here is your opportunity to purchase this investment grade farmland that has been well cared for over the years.  It includes everything from prime Class A soils to undulating land with Invenergy Wind Leases and planned turbine construction in 2020 to land adjacent to the I-55 interchange with great sight potential and future development.  Small areas of Tract #1 and #6 have hunting/recreational potential adjacent to timber and creeks.  The 1.16 acre buildable lot contains a well, oak/walnut trees and a Quonset shed overlooking undulating farmland that transitions into the Mackinaw River timber area of McLean County.  See our website for details and tract sizes!  Call Kevin Meiss at 309-665-0056 or Mark Smith at 309-665-0053 to learn more.
