Overview:
The Department of Natural Resources requires agricultural farming services for land located at Argyle Lake State Park. Lease #2040 is located in McDonough County, Township 6 North, Range 4 West, Section 36, Township 6 North, Range 3 West, Section 30 & 31, and Township 5 North, Range 4 West, Section 1, 4th P.M. The acreage for this farm lease is approximately 133.7 acres in 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 of land at Argyle Lake  State Park for agricultural purposes.

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 November 29, 2017, 10:00 A.M. at Argyle Lake State Park, 640 Argyle Park Road, Colchester, IL 62326. See A.5 of the solicitation document.
