About Wisconsin


Wisconsin is a state in the Midwest in the United States of America. The name Wisconsin means "meeting of the waters" and is of Native American origin. Wisconsin borders Illinois, and Iowa to the south, Minnesota to the west, and Michigan to the north. To the east lies the long Lake Michigan shoreline and in the northwest a smaller Lake Superior shoreline.

Being home to two Great Lakes, thousands of inland lakes and waterways, the state could easily be called the nation's "waterworld" instead. The southern portion of the state is mainly agricultural and urban while the northern half is mostly rural and forested and is more similar in appearance to Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The central region acts as a transition zone with both forests, farm land and small cities. The state's largest city and urban area is Milwaukee located in southeastern Wisconsin. In south-central Wisconsin lies the state capital Madison.

Wisconsin is known nationwide for its dairy heritage, or as "America's Dairyland". Historically an important mining state, settlers migrated to Wisconsin in the 1830s attracted by rich farmland. Dairy farming was popularized by settlers from New York and New England in 1830-60. Dominant industries today include pulp, paper and paper products (40 percent of the state being forested), transportation and equipment manufacturing, dairy farming and food processing.

Spend the mornings sitting on the front porch admiring your horses and the afternoons in the woods pursuing the many trophy bucks calling this property home. This property has not been hunted in over 25 years! Trail cameras have been placed on many of the heavily traveled trails but until these mature bucks start producing mass again be sure to check out the abundance of sheds in the stable, one of which measures 170”+. Groomed trails wind throughout the land consisting of 119 tillable acres, 90 wooded acres, and 20 pasture acres. The terrain is mostly rolling and easy to access with a large bluff to the south separated by Olson creek. The creek provides a much-needed water source for the southern pasture and for the abundant wildlife roaming the land. The landscape offers several secluded fields ideally located for food plots and perfect for easy to access stand locations. Don’t worry about the taxes because the income from the tillable ground more then covers them with plenty left over. The tillable is leased for the next 7 years for $140/acre by the neighboring farmer. Seller is not willing to divide as it is rare to find these large farms, equine properties, and hunting camps with all of the amenities. Property is located 44 miles from Madison WI, 2 hours from Milwaukee, and 3.5 hours from Chicago. Don’t miss out on this highly sought-after gem of a property in southern Wisconsin.
