Located in lovely northern Leelanau, this 10-acre offering is tucked away at the end of private drive in the rolling hills above Omena. Ripe with variety, this parcel is a beautiful mix of open field and mature hardwoods, and is home to a mini-orchard of Northern Spy and Super Jon apples. The parcel is split by Omena Rise Drive. This private road divides the land into two sub-parcels of unique character. On the east side: approximately 6.5 acres of cleared field extend to the eastern tree line, with the parcel boundary reaching about 75’ into the woods beyond. Formerly an organic orchard, this open pasture has been carefully managed. Regenerative agricultural practices including extensive soil testing, fertilization programming, and bi-annual cover crop rotation have been implemented regularly; all working toward the goal of preparing the land for a new cider orchard. To the west: approximately 3.5 acres rise toward a mature forest of maple and beech. Here, the westerly boundary extends nearly 150’ into the woods. This northwest corner is the highest elevation on parcel and offers beautiful easterly views over the apple grove and to the cleared acreage beyond. Overall, the topography of this parcel tends to slope to the south – away from the adjacent Hop Farm – offering natural protection from most nearby activities. There are many excellent building opportunities here. Existing infrastructure including underground electricity and an unused 6-bedroom septic field makes any future development of this parcel easy for the next owners! Sale shall include on-site shed – please consult the full listing for minimal building restrictions.
