Hudson, NY, Columbia County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
70 acres on Claverack Creek outside Hudson. Currently a small community with three family homesteads.
Farm History & Past Use
The farm was originally a dairy from the 1790s; the original farmhouse is still here and owned by a neighbor. Since the 80's it has been mostly just hay.
Open to discussion. We prefer cooperative or alternative models. The land is also home to three families and several other small scale farming operations -- so nothing too large-scale or disruptive but we're welcoming of new ideas and people.
Are you willing to mentor a new or beginning farmer?
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?
Compact 4WD tractor and BCS on site (co-op/rental agreement for their use) with plow, tiller, augur, etc.
No existing fencing but could install for the right partner.
Two wells, plus access to the Claverack Creek and a small pond.
Barns for Equipment/Storage
A large roofed pavillion with electricity where we currently store our tractor and equipment.
"Housing" is a small campground where other friends/farmers camp seasonally. Outhouse, outdoor shower, etc.
Additional Property Information
No restrictions on specific crop or animals. We lean towards permaculture and regenerative agriculture, and an operation that will integrate into an existing community with kids, dogs, etc. The land is also home to three families so nothing too disruptive. No large-scale poultry or pigs due to smell, other animals welcome.
