WILLIAMSTOWN, Long-term lease for clearing cost near Barre
Location: Williamstown, Orange County
Tenure Arrangements Offered:
Long term lease (5+ years)
Owner financed sale
Partnership with farmer seeking land
Other: have ~5 acres cleared of most big trees. I'd like the rest cleared and graded to drain well and then farmed. Farmer would pay upfront for clearing and grading in exchange for long term lease (>5 years, exact length TBD. Another 5 acres could be cleared but still have big trees.
Quality of Land:
No chemicals. Flat. SE to SW exposure. Use to be a tamarack forest. Stumps and some trees still in ground. Soil not tested but I would have it done for seriously interested party. Drainage generally good. A couple of small wet spots that could be easily graded away.
Farm Buildings: None
Water Resources: Vernal pool might be pondable?
