Agricultural and Recreational Potential

Swift Creek Farm is currently under Present Use Value, which allows for significant property tax savings if the new owner continues the current farm and forestry use. The cropland is leased, and the farmer retains the right to harvest this year’s crops. This arrangement ensures immediate income for the new owner while maintaining the land’s agricultural productivity.

For those interested in forestry, the loblolly pine stand offers excellent potential. The young pines have established well and could be managed for optimal growth, providing future timber income. Alternatively, the stand can be left to grow naturally, allowing for a mix of pine and hardwoods that enhances biodiversity.
