50 acres of grazing/forage


Description

We have about 50 acres of acreage that can be grazed.  I’d say it’s probably about 70% native grassland and 30% wooded (with the accompanying blackberries/poison oak).

We would prefer someone that can do sustainable rotational grazing with different species.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We are trying out some horse boarding on some of our acreage (separate from the 50 acres). We would like to have someone lease the other 50 acres for grazing, preferably small livestock.

We are planning on reinvesting the income from both these sources into land improvements - fencing, barns, water lines, etc.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Long term, we want to do specialty goat milk products (using our Nigerian Dwarfs) and continue having someone utilize the rest of the property in land-appropriate uses (i.e., grazing or horse boarding, most likely).


Current Use

Open land.


Available Water / Irrigation

Water available for livestock (domestic source, livestock exempt).


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

One large (and leaking) pole-barn type building that could be used for equipment storage, animal shelter, or hay storage.


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Potential use of Kubota L48 if necessary.


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

It is currently in Wildlife Habitat Conservation, but that can be changed to a Farm Deferral if we find someone to farm it. There are no water rights that I am aware of, but to the best of my knowledge, we can use our domestic water source for livestock. We would be open to looking into putting in an agricultural pond, etc.
