Whether your use is for cattle farming as the farm has served in the past, or a homestead close to town. There is no denying that this property has a great future as it is rapidly transitioning into a fine development opportunity.
With development adjacent and pressing at several corners, this property could be a candidate for preservation through conservation easements maintaining the property’s natural beauty and limiting the density of homes or other development.
