Boundaries of farm outlined in blue. Adjacent to
the farm is this very backward town where time seemed to
have stopped. Population: less than 36 very
view of the house and pasture from west end
The farm is 28 acres fully fenced in woven wire to hold
chickens, turkeys, geese, sheep and goats. Cattle are
horses too of course. Its hard to find that many acres
that are "water tight" 32.65 acres total with many fruit
trees, berries, plants like asparagus, horse radish,
herbs the list is to long to mention. There are 3
mushroom gardens with other wild varieties everywhere.
Land owner hunting license comes with
the place. River is 1/8th mile for fishing, we also
have a pond that was stocked. Many eatable water
plants at the pond as well. There is a hand pump about
1 mile from the house that the town maintains with
good spring water. If your pipes ever freeze up or
well goes bad, that's where you go to get water, the
town pump. Our well and pipes have all been re-worked
and replaced. No rust or metal flavor anymore and no
freeze ups anymore. Well is darn near still new. Maybe
7 or 8yrs old. New septic, new leach filed, new
insulation, new tilt in easy clean windows, new just
about everything major.
Pasture is really the pride and joy of
the farm. Every year until the GMO thing happened I
would add no less then 3 new seed types to the
pasture. For over 15yrs every Feb I would go out and
cast seeds on the snow. Now, I have no idea how many
thousands of plants are out there. Wild mustard,
radish, turnip, garlic, onions, as well as legumes and
grasses. There is a complete spring crop of wild oats.
You harvest, or mow and bale 28 acres of oats, and
then have 1-2 more cuttings of herbal pasture
depending on how much you graze the land and if you
want winter graze. I run 2 horses, 1 3K lb Longhorn
steer and 150 head of sheep and goats and still get 60
1 ton bales spring and fall.
here is 5K - 9K an acre, I went with the 5K and 70K
for house and out buildings
Spring pools in fenced pasture
There is also a natural privet spring/creek that only
exists on the land.
During drought the water falls turn into a trickle, but
showing the deep shade under these huge old trees
photo on the right was taken mid day. This shows how
shaded the home is. Thus you rarely need to use any air
conditioning at all.
