Red Acre Barn will be a flawless blend of rustic, elegance, and beauty that provides the picture perfect backdrop. We will be located in the serenity of the country with unparalleled privacy. The property is near Hwy 92 and I-35, just a short drive to the Des Moines metro. Red Acre Barn will have an authentic feel of a true Iowa barn." – Red Acre Barn
