Eaglepoint Farm is a 319 acre corn, soybean, wheat, and canola farm in Kittson County, Minnesota. Kittson County has a strong agriculture industry and tenant market, with over 400,000 acres of cropland and 800 registered producers. Eaglepoint Farm is AcreTrader’s seventh farm in the Red River Valley and its second in Kittson County to be funded through the AcreTrader Platform. This offering is an opportunity to invest in versatile farm ground in a core United States farming region operated by a seasoned local tenant.
This property lies within Minnesota’s Red River Valley. The Red River Valley was formed by the draining of the historic glacial Lake Agassiz, which left behind a deep soil bed that is rich in nutrients. Eaglepoint Farm’s 307 tillable acres consist entirely of Northcote-Eaglepoint clay, a common soil throughout the northern Red River Valley.
This region’s dense soils are suited to the production of a wide variety of crops, known as crop optionality. Over the past 5 years, Eaglepoint Farm has produced corn, soybeans, wheat, and canola. It also has the potential for edible beans like black, navy, and pinto beans as well as sugar beets, a crop that commonly commands a rent premium in this region.
Kittson County averages 21 inches of annual rainfall, typically an ample supply for row crop production. Eaglepoint Farm has three ditches across the property that support drainage to water outlets at the north end. The tenant is responsible for ditch upkeep.
The Red River Valley is home to extensive crop processing infrastructure that supports commodity markets in the area. There is a large canola refining plant in Hallock, north of the property, as well as one of the larger grain elevators in the area located to the west in Drayton. The Red River Valley has also seen recent growth in planned soybean crushing facilities, and Minnesota is the most significant sugar beet region in the U.S.
AcreTrader will continue the existing lease with the current tenant, an experienced regional operator who has been farming the property for over five years.
5-10 year target hold period is anticipated.
