well hello everyone!!!

last May I've purchased 75 acres of land in northern Ontario Canada right next to my old man where I grew up, he owns 75 acres as well. Once in possession of the land I purchased a Massey Ferguson 60hp e series hydro and I had a few question about it and that’s how I discover TBNet, I have to say this website is awesome …

It didn’t take long and I've put this little mule to work, the land is starting to lose it’s farming glory, it is getting over grown, a few more years and the only option is to bring the D6 in to clear it and it’s even still in the plans because some of this stuff is too big and thick for my tractor to handle.

This summer I've clear 21 acres of land (most of which was pretty clear but some part where pretty over grown) and burn all the bushes from the clearing. (still have a little bit left)
Built a bridge to cross small creek to access the back of the property.
I’ve done about a week of brush hog for smaller bush’s and cutting grass.
I setup my camper on the land and made a few trails in the forest mouldboard plowed and disk a few acres.

Before the end of the summer I want to plow the rest of the 21 acres

Next year have to rent a D6 and clear 14 acres of land since it’s too over grown it would take for ever with my tractor, hopefully next year I can start make some hay …

"how 75 anchors is worth?"
Why, are U selling? or just want to know if U got a good deal.

While U say North Ontario, how far north?
A lot could depend on what crops U can grow in that specific climate.

up here as north as hwy 11 goes central ontario we have long summer days in a short season … hay protein reach in the 17 % in silage … 150 acres raw ( cut but no immediate agricole potential is worth $30 000

Now I understand. " question to how 75 acres is worth in northern ontario"
Zillow should give a good estimate by seeing what similar property in your area sells for.
