Auburn, NY, Cayuga County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
Recently purchased the farm. Up until last year the fields were used for hay production. Not sure if they were hayed in 2021. Landowners have a home on the property that will be used by them, but the 7 acres of open land are available to a farmer. Interested in connecting with an organic minded farmer.
Farm History & Past Use
The farm was established by the Leonard family in the late 1800's. They farmed many crops and had pigs and chickens. Since 1984 there has not been any livestock on the property.
Short term (1-3 years), open to negotiating price with a farmer. Landowners are in the food and hospitality business and would love to be able to purchase or exchange with the farmer for products from the farm to be used in their kitchen.
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Livestock / Crops Description
We prefer an organic farmer who practices regenerative farming. There is not infrastructure other than electric and water that could be accessed from the house if needed. Likely best suited for fruit, veg, or other crops. Maybe chickens if portable housing was brought in. There is a row of Catawba grapes and 4 apple trees on the property. Not sure the type of apples, but they could likely be utilized by an incoming farmer. Would love to see bees on the property.
