Additional Information

Description

For 20+ years this area was used for Christmas trees.  It was clearcut 2 years ago, and has been fallow since, with weed control via mowing.  Much of the area has been identified by the USDA as farmland of statewide importance.  There is an adjacent 3-4 acre parcel still in Christmas trees, and owner would consider opening that space up for a new enterprise as well.  This is intended as an invitation to anyone with interest to discuss options, needs, improvements, etc.
