History: Property owned since 1970 by a gentleman farmer who still lives on the property. Current owner kept 7-12 Herford cattle on land for years as well as a vegetable garden. Property was farmland prior to current owner.
Description of property:
The property is located off of Rt. 138 a ½ mile down on the left heading west from route 1.
The property is 12 acres of flat, fenced land, mostly stone walls with some post and wire fencing. About 5-8 acres are cleared of trees. Total of 5 fields/areas.
Three of the fields are fenced by stone walls with each field further back from the road in a line. A long driveway abuts first two fields and also provides access through bar-way to back field. The 3 fields:Back field was a hay field and is currently beautifully green.
This was cut for hay twice a year until last year when it was cut once in the fall
A neighbor excavated rocks (to sell) from the field a few years ago so it is fairly rock-free.
Hay possibly good for cows. It is beautifully green right now and it will be ready for first cut soon. Worth a look, because it is free for the taking.
Good for grazing.
Front field was used to graze cattle.
A neighbor planted some corn in it a few years ago.
It is on the wet side in one corner.
Potentially good for grazing
Middle field - contains house with owner
Portions previously used to graze cattle and for family garden
An electric fence was in place at the time to contain cattle with electric outlet in detached garage. The electric fence has since been dismantled.
A tub with an automatic fill mechanism was used in this field for cattle with an electric heater in tub in the winter.
A narrower strip of 2 side fields was previously pasture now with small saplings and bush. This is the area with one side of stone walls and one side of wire fencing.
Access to well-water via hose from house for cost of any increase on average electric bill
Use of driveway to access fields
Lease: Guaranteed one-year of use. Property is on the market (however, price is “too high” according to realtor and currently owner does not want to sell for less as he enjoys his house).
