Ask Curtis Trousdale
One of the most fertile & largest single-field farms in all of New England, the amazing 555.94 +/- Yell Farm features a 460 +/- acre contiguous field of stone-free, well-drained Freiburg sandy loam. This field is producing almost 28 tons/acreage of sileage corn! A farmstead such as this, composed of the finest soils in the Northeast, would offer an excellent opportunity for biofuel, solar arrays, grain, vegetables, or traditional dairy. Imagine your cattle or equipment leaving the barn & never crossing a road for almost one mile! With 2 +/- miles of Connecticut River frontage, the state of NH allows up to 20,000 gallons of water per day to be drawn for irrigation. Additional gallonage is available by special permit. Although in Current Use for tax reduction, this property is not eased allowing a future opportunity to benefit from the sale of development/conservation rights. Large-scale summer '17 improvements such as removing fence rows/brush, improving farm roads & installing tile drainage have allowed the field to be easily accessible for efficient planting & harvesting. Once a large dairy farm but now a heifer facility, it offers a 597 free-stall barn, one large 2-family farmhouse, & several farm support buildings along with manure storage & concrete feed bunk. Milking parlor & bulk tanks on property are dated & have not been used since 2016. Wonderful river & mountain views. Great sporting opportunities for deer, bear, & geese. Located in Northumberland, New Hampshire.
