This property can have up to 4 horses or cows. The pasture is flood irrigated with tubes from the concrete ditch at the back of the property, and could even produce some hay. There is an overhang on the garage where the firewood is stored, but you could store hay too. The garden boxes are on the sprinkler timer and the earth boxes on the deck are watered from the bottom and have a 3 day reservoir.
The chicken coop was built just this year and comes with 16 chickens, some are specialty chickens that lay blue or green eggs. Fresh Eggs are the best! At one time, the owners also had bees here and made their own honey as well!
The windmill was a mother's day gift and is decorative but you could add power to it.
30 year old Concord grape vines! These vines are vintage to the property and can no longer be purchased. They are delicious eaten right off the vine or made into you favorite pie, juice, jam or jelly and then canned . Plenty for sharing or stored in the cold storage room in the basement of the home.
