Quality of land:

Presently the land has been used for haying. Approx. 50% of land was reseeded and chemically treated the remainder has not been touched for many years and can be used for organic farming. There is one small wet spot, a brook is going through the area which may be dry in hot summers, However we could make accessible water to a spring fed water source.

Property for rent:

If not all the fields will be used we could arrange for free use of land as long the other fields will be at least once a year cut with a brush hog.(depending how much land you are interested in to use)

Additional Information

The land is located on a dead end road and is not listed in the landuse program. Approx 50% of the land is on a hill or rolling field. Landowner does not live in town. Since I am representing the two owners I will have to contact them before making any major decision for approval.

I believe that beans, carrots, beets, swiss chard among many would be great for growing on the land which was not treaded chemically for at least 30+ years (approx 50% of the land).

The land would be suited for sheep, goats for grazing, corn for farming, basically pretty much unlimited use.

Owners are eager to find someone to make use of the land.

I will be more than happy to meet with you on the property to discuss your needs.
