Farmland For Sale

Despite challenges, land values have risen in Iowa this year.

Between COVID-19, derecho and even murder hornets, the year 2020 has been a tough one for almost everything, but surprisingly not for farmland prices in Iowa.

"With the COVID thing going on you would think it would have an adverse effect on the farm market and it has done basically the opposite," said Jeff Obrecht, an auctioneer and broker based in Iowa Falls known as The Dirt Dealer. "My feeling is that a number of people who could have put their farms on the market didn't because they thought with COVID, 'Gosh, (I'd be) giving my farm away.'"
