Location Specifics

7 miles west of the town of East Troy, WI (pop. 4600). 40 min. SW of Milwaukee.

Land Description

4 acres, half is flat, half is a sloping "kettle". Owner's home and 3 business buildings are on the property, along with 2 parking lots. Some areas have been in vegetable and herb gardens, that soil is decent, other areas not cultivated and soil poor. This property was never part of the surrounding commercial agricultural land (corn/soybeans). Willing to invest in long term upbuilding of soil fertility. Because the existing pharma business can finance this operation there is no economic pressure for immediate returns, only urgency based on current world economic/political situation.

Soil is sandy loam. Roughly 8-12 inches topsoil, deeper is all sand. Reports available on request.

41 acres across street may be for sale, with house/shed. Last 7 years hay, previous conventional vegetables.
Other neighbors run conventional corn/soybeans.
