Located between the Catskill Mountains and the Berkshires in the Upper Mid-Hudson Valley Region of Columbia County just outside the Village of Valatia in the Towns of Kinderhook and Stuyvesant is this family owned 180+- acre operating farm.
It's less than 2.5 hrs from NYC and includes 100+- tillable acres being a prime property for growing hemp and other quality crops. Last year was the 1st year for growing a 10+ acre hemp crop with off the scale test results for CBD oil and smokeable flower.
The 2 brothers who own and have operated the farm for the last 25 years have plant science degrees from Cornell University and understand plant physiology better than the average farmer and they know how to monitor the amount of fertilizer and nutrients utilizing their drip irrigation system. One or both brothers would be interested in staying on with a new buyer to manage the farm and take it to its maximum potential. The owners have transformed this former dairy farm into a diversified vegetable and greenhouse operation allowing for certain crops to be grown year-round and now including hemp.
There are 12 greenhouses which include heat and ventilation for starting and growing plants. There is plenty of water available from the existing wells and a major aquifer below the surface plus 3 ponds. The land consisting of quality sandy loam soils is located just east of the convergence of the Mohawk and Hudson Valley providing a unique micro-climate with tremendous air movement. The 80+- acres of additional land could be cleared for other crop farming or for other uses including a solar farm with 3 phase power at the road.
The property also includes 2 residential houses, a workshop and a soil mixing building.
Offered at $2,498,900. Contact Carl Snyder 607-280-5770 for more information and to schedule a private showing.
