Property Description

Soil types:

Property is a mix of different silt loam soils (Palatine, Mohawk, Angola, Lansing). Most are rated as prime farming soils.

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

The farm has not been farmed in the 15 years we own it. The prior owner raised calves. As far as we know, the soil is highly fertile and chemical free. We don't farm - we run a paintball business on the property for 6 months May thru Oct weather permitting. He house is huge and would accommodate a large family or extended family very comfortably. It would also be suitable for a B&B! There is a smaller house that rents for $600/month (empty at present). The taxes are low. The house is in a good school district.

Farm history / past uses of the property:

The acreage we have the paintball business on is commercial zoning, the balance is zoned for  farming.  We only know what the precious owners use the land for - they raised calves. The history prior to them would have to be researched in the town records.
