Request for Proposal – Agricultural Lease at Lower Bashakill Preserve

The Orange County Land Trust seeks proposals from farmers interested in leasing approximately 35 acres on the Land Trust’s Lower BashaKill Preserve on Route 211 in Cuddebackville, NY.  The lease shall be for 5 years at the token cost of $10, but shall require that the leased area be actively farmed and that the farmer assist with maintaining the Preserve.  The attached Request for Proposal outlines the lease agreement in more detail, and includes instructions for submitting a proposal.  As Spring is fast approaching, we request that proposals be submitted on or before March 23, with the goal of a signed lease by early April.  For additional information, if interested, contact Chris Kenyon, Director of Stewardship and Conservation, at 845-343-0840 ext. 16 or
