300 acre farm in Albany County.  1920’s barn, 19th century 4 bedroom farmhouse which needs work, 2 pole barns and pond.  Was an organic beef farm for 20 years.  About 48 acres tillable although about 30 of these have not been hayed for 12 years so are shrubby.  Another 32 acres are open but soils are close to limestone bedrock.  The rest is hilly woods and old pasture.  Land is protected with an agricultural easement and is contiguous to a vegetable farm and state land.  Open to long (or short) term lease or partnership or other creative farm transfer arrangements.


Looking for business partner(s). I need someone with experience in organic farming (vegetables) and/or pasture fed chickens (also, possibly turkeys and goats in the future). I purchased a 20-acre dairy farm in December of 2005 in Chenango County. I won’t be using it as a dairy. I have approximately 4-5 acres (possibly more in the future) of well-fertilized cow pasture and would like to start growing organic vegetables on it. We have planted 30 apple trees, 10 pears, and 20 cherry trees on another part of the property for a u-pick-it in around 4-5 years. We would also like to start raising organic/pasture fed chickens for eggs. There is a large free stall barn for the chickens and housing and an attached room that can be set up for processing them. I can supply the farm, help, and a small tractor. I am open to different ideas and am flexible on the type of partnership.


We are developing a maple sugar bush and are interested in meat goat farming and gardening. Our 70 acre farm is pleasantly located on the Moses Kill Creek with various soil types in Washington County, NY. It is an organic farming area with several farm markets nearby. We have all equipment for general farming and will consider other possibilities as the partner may desire. Room and board a possibility.


I am looking for a person or couple (no kids) to turn a defunct apple/pear orchard (some 45 acres of meadow and 35+ acres of woods) into a productive farm. Located 1.5 hours north of New York City straight up the Hudson. Potential access to extensive Green Markets in New York for sales and distribution. Also well-located near New Paltz, Woodstock and Rhinebeck, communities that favor CSA and farmers markets. I think that sheep and goat herding may be the first step; over time, crops could be introduced, but I am open to other ideas and approaches. Flexible arrangements will be considered. High energy people and self-starters with experience only.
