By all accounts, it’s the typical sort of listing you see advertised in The Land Report:
FOR SALE. 193-acre corn farm for sale in eastern Iowa for $5.4 million. Owned and farmed by same family for over a century. Includes two-bedroom house, barn built in the mid-1800s, and baseball diamond built by Universal Studios.
OK, maybe the Lansing family’s farm is not so ordinary. Twenty years ago it got a serious upgrade courtesy of Kevin Costner, Ray Liotta, James Earl Jones, and a blockbuster movie called Field of Dreams.
“If you build it, they will come.” — The Voice, Field of Dreams
Located outside Dyersville, much of the land in the listing has been in the Lansing family for over a century, but for Don and Becky Lansing it’s time to retire. As Becky Lansing told the Associated Press, “We really would just love to become spectators. We want to sit in the bleachers. We want to look forward to all that the Field of Dreams will become in the future.”
Asking price on the 193 acres is $5.4 million, including a total of seven structures and two websites. Additional acreage is available. Ken Sanders is representing the Lansings.
