Ithaca, New York (Tompkins)
120 acres of farmland near Ithaca with a sugar bush and valley views.
Here is an opportunity to own some prime farmland that has been in the same family since 1865. Families don't hold on to properties that long if it's not a usable and desirable piece of ground.
Currently, there are 75 acres that are used for hay production and rotational crops such as corn and soy beans with the remaining acreage being woods with a maple sugar bush and some hedgerows and brush areas on the outskirts.
The soils have been groomed over the past three decades by practicing no-till farming to prevent erosion and to help build up the organic matter. The majority of the soils are silt loam soils. There are several fields that have not been sprayed in over 15 years that could be certified organic.
The topography is gently sloping up from the road with rolling fields and some nice plateaus that offer fantastic valley views and there are several areas that would render secluded home sites. There is a small pond that was once used for watering cattle that could be utilized for irrigation or as a water source for livestock. This would make a great property for someone who wants to start homesteading or rotational grazing operation.
The woodlot consists of approximately 35 acres of mostly sugar maple and other species of hardwoods which is gently sloped offering the option of maple syrup production and plenty of firewood to heat your home. The deer and turkey are abundant on this property.
The options are limitless for farming with grazing animals such as sheep, beef cattle, goats or just growing crops.
There is no gas leases on the property and all the oil, gas and mineral rights convey. Don't miss out on this fantastic opportunity to own some farm land with rich history. Build your dream home and live off the land. Owner financing is optional.
