Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):
Property was used as a dairy farm from 1968 until July of 2018. Currently there are still some beef cows and a couple bred dairy heifers on site. It is a beautiful piece of property with rolling hills in the foothills of the Adirondacks and 30 miles from the Canadian border. Approximately 90 of the tillable acres have been certified organic, due to a nearby organic/grass fed dairy needing extra land for their operation. Owner was a part of a milk co-op until he stopped milking, the membership is still open until July of this year so a perspective buyer may be able to join up.
The owner would preferred to be called over emiled.

There are quite a few grass fed and organic operations nearby, the grass grass fed milk truck drives by this property every other day.
