Prime agricultural land - This idyllic 45 acre farm, located in Leelanau County and in close proximity to the Village of Empire and Lake Michigan, is currently functioning as an operational 26 acre hop yard complete with a 7,000 sq ft processing facility. With the existing infrastructure, this property would also be an ideal location for someone looking to venture into the Michigan Hemp market. Geographically, farmland in Leelanau County is situated along the 45th parallel which provides optimal growing conditions for hemp and hop farming, conditions that are similar to that of the Pacific Northwest where both hemp and hop farming is in abundance. The facility boasts an impressive 6 million BTU 40,000 cubic feet per minute expandable drying system with four 12’x12’ drying floors that could, if needed, be modified to go from drying hop cones to hemp. Additionally, the facility houses a Wolf 280 stripping machine, a Reith Baling machine and a conveyor system that moves product throughout. The operations side of the property is supplied with 3-phase and single phase electrical service and propane gas. There are two variable speed wells located on the property that produces 170 gallons per minute through the drip line irrigation system. Final acreage will be determined by survey. Not included in the listing and open for discussion, is additional acreage, a portion of which has been cleared, tilled and protected by the surrounding hardwoods. The cleared acreage once served as an apple orchard and has not been sprayed with chemicals within the last 6 years. DO NOT ENTER ON TO THE PROPERTY, OR SPEAK WITH WORKERS WITHOUT PERMISSION.
