Broker owner Dirk Talley is excited to announce its next auction: a 715-acre farm in Daviess County, Missouri. This farm is formally known as Turpin Acres, and includes 563 acres of highly productive fertile bottom land of which 91 percent is tillable. It is productive Grand River bottom ground with class II Nodaway silt loam soils.
The farm will be auctioned at 1 p.m. on Dec. 8 at the Daviess County Country Club in Gallatin, Mo. Gallatin is approximately 70 miles from Kansas City and 55 miles from St. Joseph. There will be two preview dates: Oct. 22 on site from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Nov. 12 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Daviess County Country Club. Interested parties may also call to schedule a private tour. Pre-bids are welcome.
The 715 acres can be purchased as one tract, or will be offered in four tracts, including two recreational/ hunting tracts and excellent building sites. Combinations of tracts are possible, also. It is rare to have this large of acreage in an absolute auction, which means there is no reserve price, the land will sell the day of the auction.
