Property Description

Our farm is a part of about 75 acres of farmland and forest that has not been developed in a small valley “at the end of the road” of a small acreage subdivision that has been here for more than 30 years. We now have subdivisions all around us...60,000 people live within 5 miles of our farm. It’s a peaceful place with creek bottomland good for growing (and occasional flooding), with additional growing space on the ridge.
