This property awaits a buyer with a plan. In consideration of it’s attributes it could be a cattle/hay farm, dairy operation or revert back to its former use as a hunting preserve for private or commercial use. The land abounds with an abundance of deer and turkey with opportunity for duck hunting in the large pond and along the river.
