This former Dairy Farm has multiple outbuildings, tillable ground, farmhouse and pastures located just 30 minutes southeast of Ithaca NY and Cayuga Lake.
This property consists of 213 acres which is surrounding the house which is situated almost in the middle of the property. The 1980s farmhouse is a stick-built, ranch-style home with 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, full basement and an attached garage. The interior of the home also includes a walk-in pantry with washer and dryer next to the kitchen, and a gas fireplace. The bedrooms are on the first floor as well as one bathroom, with the other bathroom in the basement. The backyard has an above ground swimming pool and a small storage shed. Heating is provided from a fuel oil, forced-air furnace.
The farm buildings include the main barn which is 36 x 165 and has 76 ties stalls, SS milk pipeline with 2,000 gallon bulk tank, 6 take offs and the hay storage loft. The other outbuildings include a calf barn with roll up canopy sides for ventilation, 2 other open-sided outbuildings that where used for cattle, 2 equipment and seed storage buildings, and 2 concrete bunk silos.
The acreage consists of 213 acres with 117 tillable acres, 45 acres of fenced pastures, and the remaining acreage consists of woods and hedgerows. The property has frontage on three separate roads, Honey Pot Road, Simcoe Road and on State Route 96B/Ithaca Road, offering a possible spot for a roadside vegetable stand. There are currently 30 acres in hay production and the remaining tillable ground is planted in corn and some soy beans. The majority of soils around the farm are excellent, well-drained soils suitable for growing a variety of crops. Past yields have been higher than average for corn and alfalfa. USDA soil maps can be sent upon request.
This farm would be the perfect size for someone who wanted to be self-sufficient with raising your own cattle and vegetables, and selling the excess hay and other ag products produced on your own farm. Possibility of hemp production with permits. There are two drilled water wells on the property for an abundance of drinking water and for livestock watering. There is a small pond on the property that could be utilized for irrigation. Currently the tillable ground is leased for the growing season of 2021. The new owner could continue the farm lease to help with the taxes and just use the property for hunting and recreation with plenty of deer and wildlife in the area. The opportunities are endless – beef cattle farming, dairy milk production, hay production, sheep, goats, pigs or even starting a meat or vegetable CSA.
Don’t miss out on this tremendous opportunity to own and operate your own farm. Good quality soils are getting harder to find.
