Frequently Asked Questions

Do you allow hunting on your land?
We Do Not allow hunting of any kind by non-immediate family members anywhere on the property. This policy has been in place for years, and is unlikely to change any time in the near future.

Furthermore, we will prosecute trespassers to the fullest extent of the law.  The reason behind our stance is largely because of the natural gas pipeline valve station that is above ground at the Northeast corner of the property.  A stray bullet could either puncture or weaken the exposed portion of the pipeline, which would result in a fuel-air explosion that could cause severe injury or death to anyone within the blast radius.  We take this threat very seriously.

Do you allow the harvesting of wood from your land?
No, we manage our own woodlot, and use the wood for our own purposes. This also includes the trees that are near the borders of our property.  Many of our forest products are used in our wood-burning stove. If you are interested in lumber or firewood, there are plenty of suppliers in the Edgerton area that would be pleased to help you.
