Farm for Sale
THE subscriber offers for sale the Farm where he now dwells, situate in the
village called the Plumb Trees, 3 miles southeast of Sunderland meeting
house, on the county road leading from Sunderland to Amherst, and only two miles
from Connecticut River. Said Farm contains about 150 acres, consisting of a
suitable proportion of mowing, tillage and wood land, is well watered, having
two good wells of excellent water : a never failing stream runs through the
Farm, and another stream annually overflows the mowing land, leaving a rich
coat of manure thereon. There is a good two story dwelling house, two barns,
and other out buildings on said premises, with a good apple orchard, and a sugar
orchard, which, perhaps, is not excelled by any in the state, and it is situated
within forty rods of the dwelling house, with a convenient sugar house and other
apparatus necessary and convenient for manufacturing sugar attached thereto,
and 1000 weight annually can easily be made therefrom.
For further particulars enquire of
