The current use is farmstead. In past have had up to 8 Nigerian Dwarf milking goats. Person leasing at that time sold goat milk, kid goats and made cheese (for home use only). I do NOT have a USDA approved cheese making room. Also, land was used to produce vegetables. Since 2011 I have labored to bring the sandy barren property to a place where I am comfortable that the SOIL is now able to sustain growth of healthy products. Each year I plant fewer seeds and continue to increase yields at harvest time. The goats and I use the regenerative farming practice to bring this land back and with the help of UVM Soil and Crop extension, I now feel ready to offer the land for lease. The forested land has a multitude of possibilities from mushrooms to ginseng. Forest has a small amount of Maple, Beech, Hemlock, Oaks and White Pine. There is a path in the woods the plantings are diverse. Someone with a forest background would be able to sort out the specifics. I am located in Milton Vermont very close to 1-89 making the location very convenient to multiple markets. My long term goal is to keep this land in Agricultural use. A small orchard is also a possibility. I am looking for a farmer devoted to proper land use, who is educated in regenerative farming practices. At this time that is a central focus for me and this piece of land.
