Rarely does a property of this size and grandeur become available. Nestled between Lake Champlain and the Adirondack Mountains in Upstate New York, this vast 1100+ acre farm and cattle ranch is a thriving organic ecosystem where sustainable practices harmonize with the land, fostering a balance necessary for a healthier environment. In an increasingly troubled world, this sanctuary is free from rising oceans, shrinking shorelines, and natural disasters that occur more and more frequently in other parts of the world. The family has channeled wisdom, respect for soils, and determination into crafting a property that seamlessly blends functionality with aesthetic appeal. Thoughtfully planned infrastructure, including 12 barns for various purposes, a huge workshop, and six farmhouses, including the owner's restored 1880s charmer, ensures that every aspect of the farm is optimized for efficiency and prepared for the future. The cattle are hardy for our winters and only eat organic grass. There are no antibiotics in the water here. The commitment to sustainability ensures that the land is bountiful for generations. The Lewis Family Farm is iconic. Incredibly beautiful, strategically located, and free of impurities... This unique property sets a new standard, proving that responsible land management is not just an ideal but a practice deeply ingrained in the farm's ethos. The wealth of on-site resources include a sugarbush, a rock quarry, apple trees and grape vines, plentiful wildlife and numerous songbird species, miles of interior and exterior electric fencing, subsurface tile drainage at 25' intervals using modern materials, and state-of-the-art laser trenching for drought and flood mitigation. There is abundant clean water from 10 wells, a freeze-proof animal watering system, and a farm pond with a dry hydrant, purposely built for firefighting if ever needed.
The Lewis Farm is a legacy waiting to be embraced by those who share the same passion for the land.
