Description

The 14 acres is part of a 16.7 acres homestead. It comprises of 1 large 12 acres field and 1 small 2 acres field. There is an option to removing fencing so that it is just one contiguous parcel. The fields are being used for hay production right now. 4 acres are alfalfa, 4 acres are bentgrass, 2 acres has a lot of wild radishes, and the rest is mix grasses.
