It is about 200 acres of former Forest Service land. So it hasn't been farmed. Base Camp is a separate property about a mile away that is just a couple of acres.

200 acres of former timber company land. And then Armin and Lori bought about 100 acres next door which I am also managing. So about 300 acres of lab. And basecamp is about 20 acres.
 
I AM MIGHTY! Especially when I hold this tiny ad:
