20 Acre Off-Grid Homestead
There are other herbs and wild medicinals throughout the property, like Golden Rod, St. John's Wort, Prime Rose, Black Cherry and more. In the center pollinator-attracting bed there is a lot of Spearmint, near the solar array there is a large patch of wonderfully smelling Peppermint. Through UpS - United Plant Savers, the property approved as a "Botanical Sanctuary".
We have an area near the storage shed that I call the "Mushroom Mound" (though it seems our inoculated logs of Blue and Italian Oyster and Shiitake have come to the end of their 5 year life span).
I have several flower beds around the property and beautiful patches of wild geraniums in the back yard sitting area. The well-house flower garden is a burst of color for most of the warm weather months. You'll have splashes of color nearly around very corner with the many Hibiscus bushes and some Lilac samplings. Along the field edge close to the old mill, there are 5 Capalta Trees that are growing up nicely.
The unique location of the property and how it's nestled into the rolling hills of the Southern Tier will not disappoint you. This region with it's many microclimates, provide the perfect environment for the distinctive world-class wine territory to flourish with over 100 wineries. This area is one of the largest tourism regions of NY state; which covers nearly 9000 square miles. You'll find 1,063 waterfalls, 605 miles of shoreline, 300 Bed and Breakfast facilities and more than 50 farmer markets, 26 state parks and 17 miles of the "Grand Canyon" of the East - which is a mere 45 miles from your new front door.

Life on the Hill
We have grown all our vegetables and herbs organically over the past 5.5 years.
Hootenanny Hill ~ part of our past, but not forgotten.
This homestead is the perfect place for an escape from everyday life as a weekend retreat, vacation away from home or a full-time home. The beauty of the Southern Tier can be seen from every corner of Wheeler Hill, as it stands at an elevation of nearly 1900’ above sea level. Peacefully tucked into Amish-country of Steuben County, this 20-acre lot, is a great place to come and unwind.
The property is encompassed by scenic views and the surrounding landscaped is charmingly dotted with iconic Amish homesteads and rolling country hills. The sounds of carriages clomping up the hills on Sunday morning will help you keep the pace of modern life at bay.
Your new home is conveniently positioned into the wooded half of the property which provides a delightful haven from East blowing winds. Having this wind block is a bonus during those long winter nights when you’ll find yourself tucked warmly inside this charming home with a cozy fire (New Wood Stove 2018).
