40 acres Woodlands and Farmland in Groton NY Cortland Road


40 acres of farmland and woods in Groton NY, Tompkins County.

Are you looking for a parcel with a perfect mix of woods and fields?  Look no further.  This 40 acre parcel has easy year-round access on a state maintained paved road with electric, high speed internet, and natural gas available.  The property consists of approximately 20 acres of hay fields and 20 acres of woods.  There are two fields that are separated by hedgerows, and the back field is almost in the middle of the property and hidden from view from the road which would be a perfect spot to plant a wildlife food plot.  The front field has an existing driveway entrance and is easily accessible from the road.  Majority of the property has wide enough trails to be driven on with a truck or SUV.  The topography is gently rolling to level.  The farm fields have been used for just hay production for over a decade and have not been sprayed with herbicides or pesticides, so there is a potential for organic certification.  This would be an excellent property for an aspiring homesteader who is in need of a pasture and a wood lot.

The woods are easy walking and have a nice mix of hardwoods which include maple, cherry, ash, beech and other various hardwoods.  There are several scrub apple trees dotted throughout the hedgerows offering a food source for wildlife.  When I walked the property I spotted a ring necked pheasant and noticed several buck scrapes and rubs along one of the many walking/ATV trails.  This property is almost completely surrounded by active farmland making a funnel for the wildlife in the area.  There are several spots that would make ideal locations to build a home and offer plenty of privacy.  There is access to 3 phase power just a short distance down the road offering the potential for a solar farm investment with a good southern sun exposure.

Don’t miss out on this one!  This property has a lot to offer and is not a drive by.  The woods are amazing!  There is no gas lease and all the oil, gas, and mineral rights convey.

Nearby destinations include:  Ithaca 27 minutes, Cortland/Rte. 81  15 minutes, Cayuga Lake Boat Launch at Myers Park 21 minutes, and Cornell University 22 minutes.

Attractively priced at $179,900.  Contact Brian Jackson 607-280-1058 for more information and to schedule a private showing.
