Croton-on-the Hudson, NY, Westchester County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
We have a 42 acre parcel with up to around 3-5 acres of potentially usable land. There is a lake, wetlands, and wooded areas available as well, but I assume that would be harder to make use of...opportunities for mushrooms.
Farm History & Past Use
A lot of farming had been done in the area long ago.
I am very open to mutually beneficial arrangements.
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Livestock / Crops Description
I would love to start a sustainable farming operation on the premises, with possible crops including fruit trees, hops, mushrooms, garlic, and/or vegetables but am very open to ideas. Not open to livestock for slaughter or roasters, because of potential disruptions to neighbors.
Preferred Farming Method
I have a greenhouse in hand that needs to be built, available electricity and water, and possible living quarters. Would be willing to invest in additional infrastructure as well.
Barns for Equipment/Storage
There is a large shed and a large root cellar available but would have to apply for permits and build a larger barn
There is a 2 bedroom house available but Westchester is not cheap...would have to economically make sense, maybe with other work on the property, or some other arrangement, to throw this into the package.
Additional Property Information
Permaculture and organic preferred, within reason. Not looking to use a lot of chemicals or anything that could be harmful to the water supply.
Is the Property Conserved
Current Land Zoning
Is the property located in a NY Agricultural District?
Can the public be on the property as a part of the farm business?
Additional Information About This Property
There is a large lake and wetlands on the property.
