The CRP on this farm is a tree program that pays $2,448/year and has three years left. A farmer rents the approximate 10 acres of pasture for $500/year, giving you $2948/year in total income. The timber is very thick, as some of it is in the CRP program. Two years ago, there was a perimeter path mowed for easy access around the property. The first thing I would do is re-establish that path. A creek cuts through the south part of the property supplying water for the wildlife. There is also a smaller creek that feeds into the 1-acre stocked pond. The entire tract is 48.5 acres, but the sellers are going to survey 2.5 acres out of it around their house and barn, leaving the recreational 46 acres. The 10 acres being rented for pasture will be cut this summer for hay and could be turned back into tillable if wanted. If you zoom out on the map, you can see a lot of tillable and timber surrounding this tract.
