680 acres Farm with Organic Fields and Marketable Timber in West Winfield NY

This unique farm property is so awesome it’s actually hard to describe! 

The 680+- acres is located at the end of a Town Road gated providing the privacy that most everyone wants today.  Here you can set your own pace and do whatever you want from enjoying all that the land has to offer with your family and friends or start your own diverse business ventures.  Even though it’s a large property, it’s easy to get around with over 35 miles of interior roads to hike or ride horses or your ATV.


The land with table top flat features to rolling topography and some high ridges includes 22 organic hay fields picture framed by hedgerows, incredible views from several vantage points, mature marketable timber consisting of primarily hard maple (sugar bush opportunity), over 2 miles of road frontage (subdivision opportunity), dozens of apple trees along with some pear trees, and 2 ponds plus the Unadilla River runs through the property – plenty of water as there is also 3 drilled wells and 4 dug wells available.

A few years ago, when the land was used as a hunting preserve, over 3 miles of 8 ft. high fence was installed where the deer, elk and buffalo roamed on the enclosed 250+- acres.  Today, the fence has been well-maintained with several gated openings for easy access and is used primarily for raising beef cattle.  When the land was being used for private hunts of whitetail deer the owner built several raised hunting blinds and strategically installed dozens of ladder stands most of which are still in place today ready to be used.

Also, the current owners ran a profitable year-round country vacation business.  The property would be turn-key if you wanted to continue with this business venture.

The property includes a main 2 story 3600+ sft Adirondack sided house finished on the interior with tongue & groove pine on all of the walls and ceilings providing the feeling of a quality lodge.  There are 5 bedrooms (with the potential for more bedrooms) and 2 full bathrooms plus a large modern kitchen, dining area and living room for relaxing.  There is also a large front porch overlooking the pond, barns with an attached garage and woodshed.  The primary heat source is a large wood stove.  Close to the main house is a smaller one story house with 2 bedrooms and full bathroom used for guests.  High upon a ridge in a private wooded setting is a rustic get-away cabin for your use when you want to be closer to nature.  The outbuildings consists of the large 2 story former dairy barn that has been modified with several horse stalls, a run-in area for the horses and a tack area.  The upper level is used for equipment and hay storage.  There is also a separate equipment storage building and 2 large barns for storing the organic hay waiting to be shipped out by the tractor trailer load fulfilling current contracts.

Currently, the farm is being used primarily for growing organic hay, raising beef and horses.  The other opportunities for business ventures could potentially include anyone or a combination of any of the following:

  • Hemp Farm
  • Organic Crops
  • Biodynamic Farming
  • Vineyard/Winery
  • Micro Brewery/Distillery
  • Country Vacation
  • Wedding Venue
  • Bed & Breakfast
  • Airbnb
  • Corporate Retreat
  • Wellness Retreat
  • Destination Retreat
  • Recreational Retreat
  • ATV Park
  • Trail Rides
  • Hunting Preserve/Custom Hunts

If you’re not interested in having a business venture but want it for just personal use, it would be a great property for a private family retreat enjoying 4 season recreation with peace and quiet!  The nearest major airport would be in Utica only about 20 minutes away with Syracuse about 1 hr 20 minutes, Albany 1 hr 40 minutes and NYC 4 hrs.

This one-of-a-kind property is priced to sell at $5,498,900.  Call Kurt Washo 315-559-3070 or Carl Snyder 607-280-5770 with questions and to schedule a private showing.
