Wind energy can easily be added as this home sits on top of a hill above the tree lines to the south and west.  Wind energy could do well in the Winter, Spring and Fall as the seasons change and the winds pick up.

The property is perfectly suited for fruit trees and permaculture landscaping.  4 of the 6.75 acres are pasture ready.  There is a shallow well near the street that could be used for irrigation of crops if needed.  We also have a 500 gallon cistern that sits on the side of the shed/showerhouse.
