Brewster, NY, Putnam County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
We are looking for the right tenant to lease our barn with ~3 acres pasture for equine or fiber animals. No meat production. Paved driveway for vehicle access to the front of the barn. The property was designed and used by the previous owner for horses, but could be used for other livestock (goats, sheep, alpaca etc.). The fencing is in need of some repair, which owner will fix according to tenant's needs as a condition of commencement of the lease. A stream runs through the property separating the pasture into two areas. The area on the far side of the stream is on a slope. Paddocks and pasture shaded with cedar and maple trees (No red maple or other trees toxic to horses). There is a large detached garage at the front of the property that could be added to the lease for additional equipment storage if needed. There is also a chicken coop, which is in disrepair but structurally solid; we would consider investing in rehabilitating it for the right tenant. Convenient location in lower Hudson Valley less than 2 hours from NYC. Less than 10 minutes from CCE Tilly Foster Farm.
Farm History & Past Use
Previous owner kept three horses on the property.
Lease barn and land. Term negotiable. Tenant to provide care and feed for animals. Owner to provide maintenance of property (repairs, mowing, leaf removal, snow removal, other upkeep). Additional terms and details open to discussion in drafting the lease.

Livestock / Crops Description
Horses, goats, sheep, alpaca and other animals not raised for meat. Vegetables, fruit, or other crops would need to be discussed as the property has a stream that drains into the NYC watershed. Would need to be cautious of any sort of chemical applications.
Wood paddock fencing. Two large paddocks, one on either side of barn. Two pasture areas for turnout. Additional fencing may be added for rotational grazing.
Running hot and cold water to barn. Well fed.
Barns for Equipment/Storage
Small barn in good condition with 3 stalls, each of which has a screened, shuttered window. Tack area, hay loft, hot and cold running water, good overhead lighting and electric.
Detached garage structure with ample space for tractor and other equipment could be added to lease.
Chicken coop built on concrete slab foundation. Solid structure but needs some repairs and re-siding. We would also need to add a run with good fencing. Open to discussion.
Additional Property Information
The property is ideal for horses and other livestock not raised for meat. Ideal for trainer, farrier or experienced owner interested in moving from a larger barn to their own space. Open to proposals for crops, but subject to limitations as mentioned above.
