Description

This is a family property totaling 180 acres with multiple homes on the land. The property has already been divided in ownership between three siblings and their descendants. The garden area (fenced to protect from deer and foxes) is currently about 2.5 acres, with the possibility of extending. There is a mobile chicken coop in the garden. There is a tractor and irrigation system already in place. There is an apple and peach orchard as well, which is an additional 2 acres. There is an equipment barn as well as a garage with a fridge and sink and bathroom. There are hay fields and a horse stable on the property as well as extensive woods. The manure generated from the horse stable is available for use as compost/natural fertilizer in the garden. There are chicken and turkey coops in another location on the property, near the horse stable. While the entire property is primarily run as a whole, the garden area can be independently operated, depending on the needs and wishes of the tenant farmer. There is the potential for a tenant farmer to occupy an existing house on the property.
