West Hurley, NY, Ulster County
Open Tillable Acres
Wooded (or other) Acres
Condition & Current Use
The is a historically residential property, but I would like to see if become a more productive landscape versus just a yard space. The front half of the property is open and the back half is wooded with some rock outcrops. I have taken down many trees to open the space up more and more could potentially be removed if needed. Interested in edible landscape, gardens, pollinator habitat, or other use that benefits the ecosystem or the community. Flowers (wild or ornamental), fruit, veg, herbs, and bees are all possibilities.
Seeking to lease to a farmer or gardener with hands on experience. One to four year lease. Will request references. Prefer to work with someone with a couple years of hands on experience farming or gardening. I am not a farmer myself so I am unable to provide guidance or assistance to a new or beginning farmer.
Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?

Water access from house. Electrical access is not set up as of yet, but depending on a farmer or gardeners need could be negotiated into a lease.
