Property Description

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

We own a working farm in Millerton, Dutchess County NY.

     We are looking for a farmer to work on or lease our 50 acre farm which includes housing. We have been farming for over 35 years and the property is in the agriculture assessment program. The farm consists of a horse boarding facility and a commercial dog boarding facility.

        Along with horse boarding, We would like to offer our facility to grow local and or organic produce. Most of the land is presently open well drained hay fields with ponds and a artesian well. We are willing to supply some equipment ( tractors and implements)


   We think this would be a great opportunity for a young farmer looking for land and a facility to grow there business.
