PRICE REDUCED!! The owners bought this raw land 50 years ago and built these lakes and the facilities for this catfish farm that now features 15 ponds and lakes and approximately 50 acres of water. These ponds and lakes are filled by a 400-gallon-per-minute spring.  This operation is unique for this area of the country as most fish farms are in the South; therefore, there is not much competition for fish sales in this area. The lakes range in depth from 6 feet to 20 feet and are utilized to raise fish from eggs to mature catfish and sold at many different sizes. There is electric service at each lake as well as several great building sites that would be elevated with a beautiful view. There is a fish processing facility as well as numerous items and equipment. (see equipment list). Also available is a P&L (profit/loss) spreadsheet for serious buyers and investors. Sellers have 35 years of fish farm experience, live next door to this farm, and will consult and advise for a year after the sale closes. If raising catfish isn’t your thing, the farm could be entered into a WRP (Wetlands Reserve Program) program. The Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) is a voluntary program offering landowners the opportunity to protect, restore, and enhance wetlands on their property. The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) administers the program with funding from the Commodity Credit Corporation. Since this farm is only a couple of miles from the Kaskaskia River it could be turned into an excellent waterfowl property that would still allow for the sale of fishing rights.
