Additional Information

Description

The Vermont Land Trust is assisting Allen and Janet Reed in  selling their 177± acre farm in Albany, Vermont. The farm was conserved in 2014.  Albany is an active farm community with significant productive agricultural land located in the Black River valley, north and south of the Flint Farm. The farm to the south (Riendeau) was conserved by VLT as well.
The Reeds are currently selling milk to the St. Albans Co-op - milking about 48 cows with about 60 mature cows, including bred heifers.
The farm includes 84 acres of tillable land (some of which is pastured periodically, especially in wet years) with 102 acres mapped as prime or statewide important agricultural soils. All of the farmland is in hay crops and pasture. The remainder of the property is either wooded or wetland, with extensive frontage on the Black River. There is a forest management plan for the property.
The property is subject to a conservation easement and option to purchase at agricultural value.
