Condition & Current Use

This property was once part of a larger farm. 128 acres currently with about 18 open acres. Half of that acreage has been mowed regularly and is immediately tillable for use. The rest of the fields do have some brush and small saplings that would need to be mowed down and brush hogged before use. This portion has not been used in the last 5 years or so. 

Soil Types

The fields are made up of Stockbridge Silt Loam (SkC & SkB) which is prime farmland. The woods are a mix of Charlton sand and loam (ClC, ClD, CrD). See attached soils map. Property boundary is not exact.
