lexington, NY, Greene County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
Existing flower farm interested in partnering with a farmer/business partner with 5+ years of experience growing specialty cut flowers. What I have to offer: land, infrastructure, beds, tunnels, knowledge and experience of growing on this land and a robust business.
Currently 1/2 in annual and 1/2 in perennial production. Total production acreage approximately 4 acres.
Farm History & Past Use
Flower production for 4 years. Previously (about 25+ years ago and back, there were cows)
I am just beginning to explore this and am open to discussions and proposals.
I cannot subdivide the land due to an easement so there is no option for sale.
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Livestock / Crops Description
I would like for the first year to be focused on the flower business. If, after learning it, you want to add livestock or veggies, that is fine. But year 1 is flowers only, since that is our main business. Once that is under good stewardship, I am open (and encourage) additional ventures.
Preferred Farming Method
BCS tractor with many attachments
10' deer fencing in two areas.
water and electric on one side of the farm/road with lots of irrigation lines and water in each tunnel.
Barns for Equipment/Storage
limited space in sheds for storing equipment. cooler, packing area.
rustic housing available and I have applied for a grant for building additional housing.
Rustic housing is at a shared farmhouse down the road. It's not ideal and I hope to find something better.
