I have an old Mitsubishi mt372 I bought for working this small plot. I'm working on getting it started. It may or may not work out. I have no implements yet, was planning on acquiring them over time.

Additional Information

Description

Looking to have soil/plot improved. I would pay for perennials (looking for berries, asparagus, rhubarb) and trees (apple,pear, cherry, and nuts), fencing and equipment (as I can afford it). I work full time and this is a retirement "farmette”. It's smaller, flat, sunny, easily accessible. You can raise goats, fowl, cow, whatever. I might be able to build you sheds, but a barn is unlikely. It has frontage on 91N, a free hundred feet from exit 8, maybe a great farm stand location.
It was plowed last year but sumac and poplar and weeds have grown back. I'm looking for a tiller.
You would have mostly total control of the land for at least 5-6 yrs, likely 10, and maybe forever. I don't think I would sell it, to you or anyone else. If you wanted, I would lease it to you for 5yrs for $1 per year and renew anually or another 5 years automatically after that, depending on how legal you wanted to get.
