Brown County Farm Land Sells For $13K Per Acre

November 29, 2012, 5:29 AM


Some Brown County farm land has sold for $13,000 per acre, breaking a county record by thousands of dollars.

Auctioneer Jim Thorpe says he knew the 158-acre tract in Cambria Township for sale Wednesday would test the upper limits of the market, but he had no idea it'd set a record.

The two quarter-sections of land sold by L.R. Corp. are about two miles north of Tacoma Park.

Another 158-acre tract in Henry Township five miles east and one mile north of Bath sold for $11,500 an acre.

Brown County director of equalization Mary Worlie says both tracts sold for much more than the previous record high recorded earlier this year, when land adjacent to the Brown County Fairgrounds sold for $8,300 an acre.
