Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

The property is allowed a Mobile Home on site for a "Handy Person" and it would be up to the lessee to do that leg work etc.. You can look up the information regarding Exclusive Farm Use (EFU) Property with the knowledge that we have approximately 165 feet (20' wide/ 3' deep at low point in season) of water rights to East Evan's Creek mountain water for farming with a dedicated power line (lg pump is kept in shop in winter). County does have it's up. The forest and three sides of the residential property is fenced in (for goats or sheep I'm guessing) but the field is mostly open with short fencing on 3 side . We are completely surrounded by three different mountain ranges, the field is flat and the forest some rolling hills and a 200 ft foothill; fabulous views.
