The private coulee is home to 11-acres of rich farmland thats rented for $100/acre providing a handsome revenue stream of $1,100/per year. The bottom land is currently being farmed organically with succulent produce. Therere four unique fields scattered about offering numerous options for treestand hot spots. This golden-pocket has been a proven big buck and turkey gem spotlighted by enticing concealment.

The land makeup, location and character are truly what makes this a magical must-see. State Highway 35, also known as Great River Road, runs along the westerly boundary showcasing spectacular views of rolling ridges swooping into the Mississippi River. A fitting natural spring bubbles from the land. Youll also find a robust trail system that scales the steep terrain at the back of the valley. The road system negotiates the elevation changes for ample access to and from the top leading to heavenly perches that overlook mud-beaten deer trails. Deer highways crisscross throughout the ridges and bottleneck along multiple foolproof saddles awaiting the sought-after November Rut. This region is known for a healthy deer population in both numbers and trophy class size. In fact, its not uncommon to see twenty deer in the valley bottom on any given morning or evening

Once atop the ridge, youll find that it plateaus to a flat flourishing in oak trees. The tabletop ridge ranges from a width of 50-yards to 100-yards scattered with deer beds. The very north-end of the bluff is where youll find Hecks Point, which is a ledge that offers an awe-inspiring panoramic view of endless ridge and water systems. During the leaf-off phase of fall, you can peer miles into the state of Minnesota from virtually anywhere on the top. A diverse makeup of timber fills the topography from white oak, shagbark hickory to black walnut and everything in-between.

This area of the state spotlights rich history. Prior to settlement by those of Swiss and Italian descent, several Indian tribes, mostly Winnebago, settled along this Mississippi region where they found fishing and hunting plentiful. In fact, there are two surveyed Indian burial grounds on the property that reflect once-upon-a-time. Before 1868, the town was called Bad Axe, named after a river in the vicinity. The oldest known white settler on the site of this picturesque river town was David Hastings, who erected the first house in 1853. Genoa was the location of a steamboat landing, which was referred to as Hastings Landing. In addition to river and rail commerce, early industry included two clamshell button factories and occupations of limestone quarrying.

Please Note: There are two additional buildable lots for sale on the Mississippi River side that connect to this property. If interested, please contact the Agent for more info.
