Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
Part of a Century Farm. 7 acres total, bordering Spencer Road and Brown Road. 8 miles South of Ithaca, NY in Tompkins County, Town of Danby.
Easy access between 500 Brown Road and 536 Brown Road, Spencer, NY 14883. Access from Rte 34/96 (Spencer Road) as well.
It is an odd shape: 5-acre square bordering Rte 34/Spencer Rd., and then a 2 acre rectangle bordering Brown Road where there are hamlet water, power and cable lines. The 2 pieces join at a corner, about 30’ wide.
The soil is excellent and drains well – the lightly rolling land was used for grazing in the past and has been fallow for a long time. Could be a nice small farm. Very private setting. Large trees on the boundaries.
Farm History & Past Use
Our Century Farm was begun in 1808 by the Todd family. They were dairy farmers. We are the second owners. We have been here since 1988. We have horses and make hay on our 100 acres. The parcel offered is now separated from the main farm by rte 34/96, the Spencer Road. It has been fallow for at least 50 years, but had been used for grazing and hay and corn production since the early 19th century.
