Condition & Current Use

Property is currently not being used for farming. Prior to the early 2000s the land was used as a horse farm. Fencing and run in sheds are still standing, but we prefer no livestock on the land. Could be used for equipment storage. We planted a bunch of blueberry, asparagus and red raspberry patches. These were sold on a honor system road side stand and did very well. Land was leased to a potato farmer for a couple of seasons and those did well in these soils. 

Soil Types

Most of the property is a sandy loam (HnC - Hinckley Cobbly Sandy Loam) with a few spots of a fina sand loam and a loamy sand complex. Web Soil Survey work up is attached.
