The Land

Total number of acres available with this property:

9.0

Total acres available for agriculture:

9.0

Acres of forested land:

4.5

Acres of cropland or tillable land:

0.0

Acres of pasture:

4.5

Quality of land:

The quality of the pasture has improved in recent years due to intensive, multi-species rotational grazing and strategic amendments (lime and wood ash). We have also followed our grazing animals with clover and legume seedings. While pH is still low in some parts of the fields, the length and quality the grazing season improves each year. The front portion of our pasture (approximately 1.5 acres) is level, has a balanced pH, receives nice sunshine and would be suitable for vegetable/crop growing. The back portion of the pasture has more hills and is likely best suited for grazing animals. No chemicals/pesticides/herbicides have been applied to the land.

Additional Information

Great small farm or homestead property, particularly for those with an interest in small-scale dairying (cow or goat)! Lovely farmhouse with modern updates, attached barn and loafing shed, as well as a Grade A dairy processing room and two-cow milking parlor. The 9-acre parcel includes rolling pastures surrounded by three-strand, high-tensile electric fencing. Pastures have benefited from multi-species, intensive rotational grazing and strategic amendments. Forested portion of property includes a sugarbush with 65+ taps. Lovely front and side yards boast large maples and fruit trees as well as a large fenced-in garden plot with raised beds and perennials including blackberries, currants and aronia berries. Entire property has been managed organically without the use of any pesticides or herbicides of any kind. Farm stand on Route 100 presents wonderful opportunity to sell directly to customers; robust area farmers’ markets (including Jeffersonville, Morrisville and Hardwick) are also just a short drive away.

Cozy living space on the first floor includes a generous mudroom, a living room and dining room surrounded by windows, and a large eat-in farmhouse kitchen with new stainless steel, Energy Star gas range/oven, refrigerator and dishwasher.

High-speed WiFi available from Comcast. Large attic and attached barn provide ample storage room.
