This property has 58.5 acres on the north side of 1475th Avenue and 10 acres on the south side of 1475th Avenue in Northwest Wade Township. This is a nice all-weather township road that offers over one-half mile of frontage on the south and on the west side of the larger parcel. This property is easily accessible from Newton, which offers the nearest retail, business, and financial services, as well as grain marketing facilities.
This land is generally level to undulating in topography and has no buildings. Of the 68.5 acres, there are 55.25 acres tillable, which is 81% tillable. The soils are Class C with the two major soils being Wynoose Silt Loam and Bluford Silt Loam. The balance of the farm (about 14+ acres) is in woods for hunting and recreational use.
The farm lies about six miles north of Newton, the county seat of Jasper County. From Illinois Route 33 at the west part of Newton, turn north on 1000th Street (County Highway 3). Follow this road north as it turns and curves to the left (west) where it eventually becomes 850th Street. Turn left (west) where this county highway turns left at 1475th Avenue. This farm lies mainly on the north side of 1475th Avenue. In addition, there is a 10-acre tract that lies on the south side of the road near the mid-point of the farm.
