Fox Hill Farm in idyllic Ancramdale consists of 212 acres of prime farmland fronting East Ancram, Fox Hill, and Blodget Roads with two spectacular, private building sites, an early 1800 farmhouse, a 1950 farmhouse, several barns, spring fed ponds, mature woodlands, hedgerows, and a high open meadow. Beautiful, varied views include those of the Berkshires, Alander Mt, Old Croken Hill, and the distant Catskills make it among the most picturesque properties in Columbia County. In an area that encompasses some of the most intact agricultural communities, the property is protected by Columbia Land Conservancy and 2,000 acres of additional protected land including the Drowned Lands Swamp Conservation Area (home to rare, threatened bog turtles) owned and operated by the Conservancy. Other adjacent lands are protected by the Dutchess Conservancy. Currently, the property is used for raising grass-fed beef cattle (in a symbiotic relationship with the turtles).
