The great thing about the hamlet of Wassaic (and its town, Amenia) in Dutchess County is that the Harlem Valley rail trail runs right through it, which provides commuters the change to use it to travel between their seventeen-acre farm and the Wassaic Metro North station on Route 22. And oh look! We just happened to have found a seventeen acre farm about a mile from the Wassaic Metro North! How serendipitous. We also understand the even a mile on a scenic rail trail can be stretch in bad weather, but when the weather’s good, what a way to travel. The farm includes six outbuildings, two of which are horse barns, making it an option for horse lovers. Speaking of which, are horses allowed on the rail trail? Is there a hitching post at the Metro North station? If so, we may have just solved getting home from the train without a car…
