requirements, please submit an Offer.
The Department of Natural Resources requires agricultural farming services for land located at Eldon Hazlet State Recreational Area (SRA). Lease 2118 is located in Clinton County, Sections 21, 27, 28, 29, & 32, Township 3 North, Range 2 West, 3rd Principle Meridian. The acreage for farm lease is approximately 137.8 acres in 2014, 121.9 acres in 2015, 137.8 acres in 2016 and 121.9 acres in 2017.
Many Department of Natural Resources owned or managed lands contain tillable acreage. These lands have the potential to generate revenue if used to grow agricultural products. It is the Department’s policy to minimize the use of such lands for agricultural production in favor of establishing annual or permanent wildlife habitats. However, the Department also recognizes that certain agricultural practices and farm income can provide needed resources for wildlife habitat, improving habitat diversity, developing cover and edge effect, and maintaining annual vegetative stages.
A mandatory vendor conference shall be held December 3, 2013, 10:00 a.m. at Eldon Hazlet S.R.A., 20100 Hazlet Park Road, Carlyle IL 62231. See A.5 of the solicitation document.
