Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):
Total acreage available to farm is 18 acres. This field has been used for hay with cover crops up until 2018. The owner is seeking a farmer to use the property so that it stays available for agriculture and does not get overgrown. The field consist of mostly loam soils that are rated as prime farmland by web soil survey. Water and electrical access could be brought to the field from the landowners house if needed. There is also about 18 acres of overgrown pine trees (believe they were planted to be harvested as Christmas trees) that could be harvested by someone who would like to use them.
