Property Description

Soil types:

sandy loam

Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):

Some early and everbearing raspberries, black raspberries, and blackberries remain in production at present. The property has been in organic production since 1985. High end chefs, farmers markets and culinary schools have held its fruits and vegetables in great esteem. Now in decline due to passing of principal farmer. The property is poised for transition to a more sustainable operation or for permacultural practices which would enable a more holistic use of the terrain. The land's proximity to the Hudson River, and its history, create the opportunity for education and agritourism programs for the ultimate sustainability of this property.
