This land is available for: Share/Partnership

Acreage available: Approximately 5 acres

Land Use:
The property has been used to grow vegetables and had a 200 hen flock of laying chickens. The lower field lends itself to some kind of animal operation with the completion of an unfinished barn, as well as having amazing soil for growing vegetables. Possible use of Alice Chalmers G Tractor to the mechanically inclined. We are envisioning a shared use of the property and possibly some of the structures.

We are open to any ideas/arrangements from collaborating to leasing.

Water Sources:
The property's back border is the Kaaterskill Creek with a 45 foot swimming hole and a 60 foot waterfall one mile upstream creating a cleansing natural aeration, good for irrigation. There is also a small man-made pond.

Building(s) Available:
The property has the following buildings available:
(1) A large two story barn that housed 200 laying chickens.
(2) A large solar oriented greenhouse attached to an old two story barn that could use some TLC to be made into a year-round functional space

(5) A small cottage with sleeping loft, 1 bath of roughly 800 square feet.
