Hurley, NY, Ulster County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
126 acres of land divided over 3 adjacent parcels. Mostly forest, large wetland area and a large meadow. The meadow is approximately 6 or 7 acres and is brush hogged once per year. Two houses on the property, a small fruit tree orchard and vegetable garden. A rare large cedar grove.
Farm History & Past Use
Very limited information. I was told the land was a turkey farm at some point. It borders a rail trail, and I was told the forest has evidence of fires (a long time ago). The (converted) barn is from the late 1800's, and there is an old farm house foundation from the same time.
Looking to share the land, first on a short term basis. Only for organic, environmentally sound use. Looking to cut the cost of maintaining the land, and sharing knowledge how to the best steward of the land.
Are you willing to mentor a new or beginning farmer?
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Livestock / Crops Description
I would love to see bees, native plants, or an agri forestry system integrated into the property. I am open to other types of operations that will work with what the land is capable of. The incoming farmer needs to be a good land steward.

Additional Property Information
Looking for a farmer who is going to work with what the land and what it is capable of. Conservation and regeneration is a top priority for me.
