Acreage (Deeded & Leased)
Approximately 50 acres of this tract are enrolled in nutrient banking, a statewide Virginia program whereby agriculture acreage is converted to forest. Once converted, the acreage must remain in trees in perpetuity. The acreage enrolled was selected both for its suitability for the program as well as the secondary benefits the forested land brings to the wildlife management goals of this tract.
The Clifton Tract is home to a number of agricultural improvements. There is a 4,400± square foot equipment barn with four bays attached to a fully enclosed 1,600± square foot workshop. Adjacent to that is the 4,000± square foot cattle barn and working facilities, as well as an 8,000± square foot concrete pad for dry storage, which is capable of storing 1,500 tons of silage.
Adjacent to the barns are the two 50’X674’ poultry houses and a 6,500± square foot litter storage facility. Linden Farm is currently a contract grower of hen turkeys for Cargill, and the houses reliably produce competitive flocks. Great care was taken in siting the poultry operation, including extensive earthwork to ensure an efficient and functional layout with minimal impact on the landscape. The resulting site is highly-regarded for its airflow and location. The houses generate $75,000 - $85,000 of pre-tax cash flow annually, making it an impactful revenue source within a relatively small footprint.
Annual property taxes are approximately $15,540.
