Nearly 2000 apple trees are producing on the property with production expected to increase over the next 2-3 years. Automated, above-ground, drip irrigation feeds the orchard from one well, and a second well provides water to the large commercial kitchen and facilities. A 6000 gallon holding tank provides water storage for the agricultural well and a 1000 gallon tank is in place for the well to the facilities. A large 10×24 covered patio provides a wonderful shade area from which to relax and enjoy the view. The large commercial kitchen is newly constructed, built three years ago and finished just one year ago. With over 1000 esf of work and walk-in freezer space, there is plenty of room to grow the operation. A wide variety of commercial equipment, used for apple processing, baking and cider production, is nearly new and will convey with sale of the property. Two additional coolers are situated near the kitchen and provide additional fruit storage. A variety of equipment used for farming will also convey with the sale. This property is exquisitely maintained and is ready to welcome its new owner in time for apple season!
