Description

This property is being presented by: Sharon Faust Big Bear Real Estate

The perfect size Sugar Bush! Large enough to turn a profit without taking the fun out of it and admit it, that's what you have been waiting to hear. 190 treed acres where the Sugar Maple dominates. Offering 6,300 taps with room to grow. The sugarhouse comes completely equipped with electricity, reverse osmosis, vacuum pump, multiple storage tanks, electric and mechanical extractors, filter press, etc. After a sweet sugaring season, use the sugarhouse for a camp base and go 4 wheeling or just for camping out fun. There is a large clearing/landing to work on your firewood before the cold sets in, and plenty of timber to cut, it is good stewardship of the land and a great fund raiser. When fall rolls around, this becomes an awesome hunting camp. With room to sleep 8, imagine the poker games to be had. During the winter there's more fun to be had. Fire up the cook stove, put a pot of stew fixings on top and take the whole family out snowshoeing to check the sugar lines. When you are done, come back to a warm camp/sugarhouse and an amazing aroma of stew to be gobbled up. 4 seasons of fun await. Please see attached equipment and supplies list. These lush acres are not enrolled in any restrictive programs.  Don't miss out!
