113 acre Farm Property with Views and a Stream in Danby NY Hilltop Road near Ithaca

This 113 acre property offers gently sloping fields, amazing views, woods with tall majestic oaks, and a flat rock bottom stream located in Danby NY.

This property is in a very convenient location just a short 15 minute drive to downtown Ithaca and Cornell University.  In the recent past, this property was used as a sheep farming operation that was a successful venture.  Currently, the 85 acres of farm fields are used for producing hay with a good portion of the fields fenced with high tensile woven wire fencing.  When the fields where in production, there was a nutrient management plan in place along with the application of lime to increase the productivity of the soils.  The majority of the soils are desirable well-drained silty loam type Langford, Erie and Bath soils.

The property spans across Hilltop Road which is a dead-end road with a peak elevation of 1,430 feet known as Jersey Hill.  The farm fields on the north side of the road are almost level with a south facing gentle slope.  The fields on the south side offer a gentle slope towards the woods facing south for an excellent solar exposure.  The fields have had no pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers applied for over a decade offering potential for organic certification.  Great opportunity for someone who wants to start a veggie CSA, farmer’s market, or use the property to raise livestock.  The elevation of the property peaks at the road and gently slopes down the hill towards a wooded area where there are tall majestic oaks, maples and large white pines. Among the trees are two older log cabins in a state of disrepair.  The property descends to a gorge with a stream that meanders along the southern border.  The Finger Lakes Trail System crosses the far back corner of the property offering the landowner direct access.  The Finger Lakes Trail System is a public hiking trail system that offers over 560 miles of trails that traverse through the Finger Lakes and across the state of New York.  Private landowners allow the trails to cross their properties so others can hike and enjoy the natural beauty.  This is a true Finger Lakes gem with a spectacular viewshed, and is a rare find.

Attractively priced at $550,000.  Contact Brian Jackson 607-280-1058 for more information and to schedule a private showing.
