Livestock / Crops Description

Any type of livestock & crops are allowed. Cattle (long horn-jersey etc), swine, goats, sheep, poultry etc. Everything permitted. Same with Crops. There are some irrigation sprinklers that were installed over a large field behind house #2 when the spring lines were installed (4-6 feet under ground). No chemicals were ever used on the property. The previous owner did not do much planting- only on the upper fields- watermelon & other fruits (he was a hunter). We just had a small area for crops- nothing too big. Things did grow well. Many Apple trees on the property. We planted many trees & everything grew.
