Iowa Farms for Sale
Iowa offers abundant natural beauty, a robust agriculture sector, and farmland for sale that's more affordable than many other parts of the country. Iowans enjoy far more hills and forests than many of their Midwestern neighbors, which allow for great hunting and other outdoor recreation, and even the state's most rural areas are still just a few hours away from cities like Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, or Sioux City.
The state is particularly friendly to farmers; nearly 60% of the state's land is cropland used for farming, and there's no shortage of processors and distributors who can help farmers sell their crops. Iowa is one of the nation's leading producers of corn and soybeans, and the state is also a major center for livestock such as hogs, cattle, and chickens. However, Iowa’s rich land supports many different types of farms for sale. At Farms USA, it is our goal to bring you, the buyer, the best property and listings of ranches, acreages, land and farms for sale.
Types of Listings For Sale
There is a wide variety of land for sale in Iowa, including properties of all sizes that have been used for grains, vegetables, and livestock; land that's perfect for hunting or other outdoor recreation; and land that has the potential for residential or commercial development.
Iowa land for sale ranges in size, from just a few acres to several hundred, and sometimes even over 1,000. Depending on their size and level of development, properties in Iowa typically range from under $50,000 for a few rugged acres to several million dollars for large commercial farms.
Since so much of the state is covered by farmland, properties are typically available all throughout the state; aside from the suburban areas near Des Moines in the state's center, Cedar Rapids and Davenport in its east, and Council Bluffs in its west, nearly all of the state is rural or "exurban." However, there are a few areas that are particularly desirable for farmers: Iowa's western section, near the Missouri River, is known for its abundance of particularly rich agricultural soil called loess. A great deal of high-quality property for sale can also be found in the state's north and south regions. When you purchase Iowa land, you get countless farming and agricultural opportunities.
