Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):
Still Open for 2021! Located in Dutchess County. This property is largely wooded with a few acres of open spaces that have been mowed and maintained. These open spaces have never had any chemical treatments so there is a potential for organic farming! The forested area is under a NYS forest management plan. Some wetlands on the property visible via the maps attached below. These wetlands are protected and NYS delineated. Owners are seeking to lease to a farmer or farming couple to use the land. Would like the farmers to earn an agricultural assessment for the land. Open to livestock or vegetable production. The wood areas could be great for mushrooms!
