Additional Information

Description

This nice flat field of prime Whately soil is behind the house and currently has cover crop of winter rye or wheat.  Water source would be brook, no illegal crops, just annual crops of veggies, grain or hay, no structures, even temporary, no pesticide use. No hunting or bothering the wildlife. No tearing around on dirt bikes, autos or snow mobiles. Access is a dirt road off property, also used by solar people. Would want the tenant to help keep path between house and field open for me.
