#1193 Western Montgomery County NEW LISTING
~ Mostly Remodeled Home
~ Water, Views, Good Soils
~ The Right Mixture of Crop Land, Pasture & Woods
53.3 acre farm, 36 tillable (high quality soils, rented by the season to an Amish neighbor). The y lay nice and have black silt loam soils. The remainder is about equally divided between pasture (some of which could be cropped) and woods. To my knowledge, the woods has not been logged in far more than a decade. There are fine southern views across the valley, and there is 2587’ of road frontage on two roads. A tiny stream flows through the pasture and Crum Creek forms the northern boundary. This is a 30’ wide, always flowing, clear water creek. By the buildings are a dug well and two drilled wells, one of which taps into an aquifer with water suitable for bottling. The farm is registered with the USDA and is eligible to participate in their programs and grants. I do not believe anything has been done with USDA that would encumber it. There is also a trailer pad with a septic.
The home is 2188ft2, 2 centuries old, and was the subject of an extensive remodeling 10-15 years ago. As the owner’s plans changed, the remodeling was never completely finished. But it is perfectly livable as it is. Floors were leveled and walls were studded to 6” thick. Nearly everything was sheet rocked and super well insulated, with new windows and doors. A very large wrap-around deck was built, some new floors installed (Southern Yellow Pine planks - very attractive), and there is a new stairway and rails. And a completely new bath installed (the shower was plumbed but not finished). Not to worry, there is a full bath downstairs. The home was largely re-plumbed and re-wired with a new entrance and a new hot air furnace. And the old roof and siding were replaced with enameled steel and vinyl, respectively.
It has an eat-in kitchen with tons of cabinet space, oven, cooktop, refrigerator and dishwasher. The floor here needs to be re-covered. The living room is large, divided. The small section of it never had the floor surface finished. Upstairs, each of the 4 bedrooms has a cathedral ceiling. Three are nearly completed and the 4th needs additional work.
The old diary barn was removed, but the foundation was left intact. The one story section of it stands. It is 36x50’, clear-span, insulated and heated with a coal furnace. It has an open front so would be easy to add on to if it were not large enough for your needs. A large silo room is off to the side. There are 2 Harvestore silos (20x60’ and 20x32’) and a 20x60’ concrete silo. There is also a 30x42 machinery shed with electric. At the edge of the nearest field is the frame for a hoop house, 30x100’ with15’ center height.
Taxes are just $5859, but could be lowered considerably as the owner failed to let the authorities know he’d removed the dairy barn, so it is still appears on the rolls. The price is $449000: they’d like to hear offers.
Available by separate treaty are the following: Ford/NH TC35 4WD tractor with loader (800 hrs), bush hog, finish mower, lawnmowers, pressure washer, 2 bottom plows, small disc harrow, posthole digger, rake, produce planter, rototiller…
If you did not want all the land, they are willing to keep some. The property has been surveyed and would be fairly easy to separate. The minimum would be 15 acres of pasture with the buildings for $275000 or 20 acres by adding the smallest field - $299000.
#1189 - Central Montgomery County - NEW LISTING, MUCH LOWER PRICE. Old Order Amish Farm
- Home and principal barns are almost new
- Attractive homestead setting
- Set up for dairy goats, easily adaptable to other livestock
- Fonda schools
There are about 98 acres here, of which up to 62 can be cropped and another 12 pastured. The remainder, 25 is wooded. Streams flow through that area. There are 2 farm ponds as well as 3 dug wells and a 225’ drilled well (no pump running on this) - plenty of good water. It has over 2000’ of road frontage and another 1450’ on an abandoned road.
The home is 3 years old and the main barns are just a bit older. All are exceptionally well- built. The home sits just behind a small stand of sugar maple and large white pines, and has 2304 ft2 of living apace, with a full attic and a 4 room dry basement. Real 3/4” hardwood floors are throughout. It looks nice. Downstairs is an open floor plan with large common rooms, K-DR, living room, foyer, and a pantry plus woodshed and master bedroom. There is also what they call the 'bake room", occasionally used for large scale baking. Above are 7 bedrooms, middling in size, One does not have the sheetrock fully complete. In the front is a broad porch.
The dairy barn has a series of 4 large pens, a milkhouse and a 12 stall parlor for dairy goats. It is 38x80” and has a large drive-in loft. The horse barn is 38x64’, with a partial loft, 7 box stalls, 1 single and3 double stalls, plus tack room & watering and grooming area. These buildings are outstanding and anyone should be proud to own them.
In addition is a12x20’ shed used to house buggies, which could be used for small machinery, 2 ice houses, a 12x20’ chicken coop, and a 2 story shop, ~30x44’.
The price was just drastically lowered to $392500 and taxes are around $4750. It is on ag value assessment. They are hoping for a Spring closing so they do not need to have their children change school. Adjoining it is a 14 acre property, recently surveyed, with home and barn that will be offered for sale at a reasonable figure, giving you the chance for a family compound or housing for your help.
A word on Old Order Amish homesteads. Their religion does not permit Sunday showings. Please take this into account. Also, there is no electricity, even though the wires are right there at the road. And no bathrooms, septic, central heat or modern kitchens. The home is being comfortably lived in but the siding has not been installed over the Tyvek wrap. Also much of the trim is unfinished. Nevertheless, it presents a very welcoming appearance, both inside and out..
#1175 Eastern Montgomery County LOWER PRICE
~Near Capital District
~ Many renovations to home
~ Lots of barns
Adjoining Schenectady County, we have a 71 acre farm with 53 tillable (needs brush hogging, but no chemicals on it for many years). In the woods is 37000 feet of standing timber, mostly oak and maple. (Figure what that’s worth alone.) There are 2 small streams and a shallow pond, and 2 drilled wells which cross-feed home and barn. You will love the view to the east as well as the quiet location only 1/2 hour from the Capital District..
The home has had extensive recent renovation, but the job is not fully complete. There are all new windows and siding, electrical entrances, new septic, new furnace and HW heater, new bath and laundry, plus miscellaneous work in other rooms.

This is priced at $409900. Taxes are extremely low - $3700. Just so you know, to focus on buyers who are both serious and qualified, the owner has asked that that any accepted offer be accompanied by a $10000 non-refundable deposit. It will be refunded in case of unclear title, but not for other reasons. This adjoins #1020, a 112 acre farm).
#1181 Central Montgomery County - SOLD

#1179 - Eastern Montgomery County. NEW LISTING - SOLD went above starting price, multiple offers
~ Nr. Capital District
~Views + Quiet
2 homes, barns, and the world at your footstep. The main home is 7 years old and has an open floor plan for the kitchen/dining area/living room. There are 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, plus a separate laundry. Front deck for the view + back patio. Some furnishings can be made available (2 beds, 2 dressers, sofa, island chairs, some end tables). The basement is full, dry, insulated, and high-ceilinged. It could easily be made into additional living space if the 1320 sq. ft. upstairs is not enough. Heat is from a oil hot air Lennox furnace. Water is from a spring. We will add a UV system so no one has to worry. I’m not kidding about the views: you can see across the entire Mohawk Valley into the Southern Adirondacks from here.
On this side of the road there are about 24 acres, nearly all open land, nearly all of which can be cropped or pastured. Across the road are nearly 70 acres more. Of this other land, 43 are tillable, all in hay now. The remainder of these are heavily wooded, surrounding 2 creeks. Very pretty. Some of the fields enjoy the same or similar view that the home lot has. 92.7 acres total. Since it is on both sides of the road, there are 3250’ of road frontage, lots. The road has almost no traffic - I was just there for 2 hours and saw one car pass. Yes, it’s paved.
On the same side as the home is a single story dairy barn, 36x80’, with 32 stanchions. If you want to milk, do yourself a favor - remove them and replace with ties. The milk house is 17x18’ and has a 400 g bulk tank, room for another or even a third one in a lower clean area. The pipeline is there though not complete. However, the barn cleaner appears to be fully workable.
Just a few feet away is the original hip roof barn. It has additions on both sides and measures roughly 45x100’ with a 20x20’ hip roof section extending beyond. Inside are stalls for heifers and other livestock, one very large room and several smaller ones. The loft goes the entire length and has a both a mow conveyor and a skeleton elevator feeding it. Although you can easily find things to do, basically this is in good shape. A 14x40’ cement silo is next to it.
Just up the road and nearly hidden by giant yews is the original home. Built in 1849, it was recently stripped to the studs for a renovation that never happened and is in very poor shape as it now stands, not habitable in any sense of the word. 1870 sq. ft., with a newer roof over most of it. It is saltbox style and stands in a very shaded yard and is serviced by a 265’ drilled well.
. Taxes on it all are between $7-8000 with none of the usual deductions (other than ag assessment) taken. The owners reside elsewhere. This property is only 30 minutes from Albany and should get lots of good people excited. Especially with those views and the quiet you enjoy here! This adjoins #1175 (77acres), which we also have for sale.
#1146 Northeastern Otsego County - SOLD
- 75 acres, adjoins State Forest
- Tons of barn space
- Shipped milk (parlour) 12 years ago
Best buy, best not wait or you’ll be too late. This farm last shipped milk 10 years ago and you may expect to make repairs, even though its roadside appearance is quite attractive. There are 75 acres, maybe 20 of which are rolling sidehill hay meadows, another 35 wooded, and the remainder pasture. Previous owners have relied upon nearby rented land, but you could also buy crops if you prefer. There is a stream running through the property, plenty of water. It has frontage on 2 roads, a lightly-traveled State route and a county road,1530’ total. Nice area views. In the back, it adjoins State Forest land.
The home has 1600 ft2 and sits elevated above the road with vinyl siding and a newer green steel roof, so presents an attractive roadside appearance. Inside, frankly, it needs significant help. Do not be blinded by the attractive exterior. More visitors have planned to raze it than to remodel it. If you are planning to finance this property, do not expect the home to add to the appraisal value here. The value is in the barn and the land.
There is an enclosed porch with cement floor, a paneled long wall and new windows. The kitchen is 11x12’, with a ceiling fan, propane range, and a new window. A wide door-space separates it from the dining room (9x11”) which at one time must have served as the kitchen as it has wainscoting, cupboards (with sliding glass doors). A wood stove is in this room, also a washer. The living room L’s around the stairway and would be 15x17’ were it not for the “L”. It has a carpeted floor. Off of it is an old full bath (not used) and and another bath, newer, with a corner shower stall and a separate laundry room. Those rooms are 7.5x17’. In the other direction is another L-shaped room, 16x17’. This houses a 2 person hot tub, a piano and space that was once used for a laundry. Sliding glass doors open to the deck and the old pool.
Upstairs are 3 rooms, a 7.5x17’ child’s bedroom which encompasses a walk-in closet. There is a room at the landing which is 15x17’, carpeted, and could serve as a bedroom. Beyond it is a 16x17’ bedroom, carpeted. Its floor slopes significantly in one corner, probably due to bad joists in the basement. The foundation of laid stone appears to be OK. There is a new electric entrance but much of the wiring is considerably older. Plumbing and heat need to be thoroughly gone over. “Shabby, in need of paint and paper” describes the walls and ceilings.
There is a one car garage attached to the home but this is better used for storage. Next to it is a deck and an old in-ground swimming pool, surrounded by a cement pad and chain link fence. The basement has no stairs and was not visited. I noted a new 100 amp sub panel for wiring upstairs; the main must be in the basement. A dug well is by the home. Mostly, the molding and baseboards in the home are original. Some are quite nice.

- asks $500000
Have your cake and eat it too! There is a 30 year solar contract here which conveys along with the farm. Better yet, the solar firm has agreed to raise the solar panels so that the pasture beneath them can continue to be utilized. This should raise some eyebrows and get the economic juices flowing.
There are 60 acres, nearly all of which are of which are improved pasture set up for rotational grazing with only a small amount wooded. Flat to rolling terrain. In the pasture has a watering system and high tensile fencing. Just across the street is the Upper Hudson river.

A concrete strip leads to a 40x100’ Coverall barn, new 11 years ago, with concrete floors and sand pens with a bedding pack. It is used for heifers and calves and has curtained side walls.
#1166 - Western Montgomery County - SOLD
- 73 acres, all open, farmed organically
- decent facilities for livestock and machinery
- Amish farmers in the neighborhood
A beautiful parcel, and beautifully kept, too. There are 76.9 acres here of which 52 are tillable, 17 pasture and the remainder wooded, All gentle slopes, all in hay, and certified organic. There is 2978’ of road frontage, too. A dug well (lots of water, but has iron) located near the pond supplies water to the barn, but there also is a good spring in the woods that used to be the main source until the pipes needed to be replaced.
The barn is 32x80’ single-storied (stable part), with a hay barn attached at the back (32x60’). There are 50 tie and a large leanto addition affords space for young stock. Milking and cleaning equipment has long been removed, but a 16x24’ silo remains, it is sealed storage, bottom-unloading, and intended for grain. The attached milkhouse is 16x20’.
There is a 38x57’ pole barn and a 20x20’ garage. The garage has a new door overhead door, room for a small shop and a full second story, a nice building only the siding was never install over the sheathing..
The home was removed some years back, but where it stood is a great building site, all lawn with shade trees and a circular drive. A dug well remains.
The barn is large, 32x250’, and it is a far better barn than the house is a house. Connected at its end is a 40x100’ pole barn which has been used at various times for hay, machinery and for livestock. In the main barn are 110 stalls. They need repair and were used most recently as freestalls. The barn has tunnel ventilation with spaces for 6 - 4’ fans, half of which appear to be complete. There is hay storage over its entire length and a Patz barn cleaner services half of it, a Clay or Badger chain on the rest. There is a large enclosed manure shed and a generator hookup and, in the oldest section, space for calves. Water is supplied by an artesian drilled well. There are 4 silos, no unloaders. 3 18x50s and a 14x40’.
You will find a fairly new double 6 milking parlour. This appears to be in good shape. It has a 3” lowline, ATOs, and is rapid exit. Nice. The milkhouse is L-shaped and has 645 and 635 gallon bulk tanks and a newer 100g water heater/heat exchanger.
The home is of colonial origin and, very much unlike the barns, is in poor condition. It has 4 bedrooms, and 2 baths and is heated by a wood stove. It has a partial basement. Same water as the barn - dug well + public water. The 3 car garage is in similar condition.
We are asking $500,000, but the owner will consider offers. The taxes are $4719. If you are serious about farming, you need to see this one right away. For further questions or to arrange a visit or submit an offer, please give Larry Casler a call at 315-823-2970.
