Property Description

Soil types:

see attached

Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):

The open field portions are relatively flat. There are two high power lines with a 250  easement from center of lines. Central Hudson will allow gardens, and anything flat inside 250 feet easement, other wise can use other parts of the land. The land has not been cultivated for at least  40 years, only haying has been done by a neighbor, but that may have stopped recently. Used priviously for  corn, the two old apple trees still produce apples, and animal grazing. Land part of a farm over 200 acres years ago, and was located on  both sides of the street. The land is located in two counties, Orange and Ulster. We prefer the land use in Ulster ( 4.6), and a portion in back in Orange, all zoned for agriculture. Honey prduction, and above ground beds could work. Peppers, berries, any produce with short shelf life has been suggested. A roadside stand is a possibility. We will  build a shed, bring in electricity, and  have a well  dug.

Any additional information about this property:

A neighbor who raised pigs and chickens next door, then had them sent out for butchering, suggested on our property; ajies, peppers, berries ( with a short life span), and someone from Cornell extension who visied said that bee hives would work as wild flowers in area.  Also,  growing above ground veggies and fruits.
