The hill top blueberry land is located in sparsely populated Piscataquis county in Kingsbury Plantation. Kingsbury Plantation is a rural area with a year-round population of 28 people. Many seasonal cabins are found in Kingsbury Plantation, so the weekend population during the summer months does increase somewhat. Located within the plantation is Kingsbury Pond which is a 452+- acre cold water pond with good fishing for landlocked salmon, brook trout and splake. The area is predominantly working forest, with much of the land in the area early successional forest. Grocery shopping, medical care and dining opportunities can be found in the nearby towns of Guilford and Dover-Foxcroft.
The early successional forest comprising and surrounding Kingsbury Plantation are an outdoor enthusiasts dream. The logging roads and trails provide access to the forested land for hunters, hikers and recreational vehicle enthusiasts. Miles of ATV trails in the warmer months and snow mobile trails in the winter provide riding opportunities. The waters of Kingsbury Pond as well as the streams that flow into and out of that fishery are visited by fishermen looking for salmon and trout. Moose, deer, ruffed grouse and other game animals are found in the forested lands of the area. Whitewater enthusiasts can find good paddling conditions, at times, in Kingsbury Stream which flows from Kingsbury Pond to the Piscataquis River.
A cold, spring fed brook flows along the eastern boundary of the property. Having over 200 feet of elevation drop along the 4000 feet of stream, makes that boundary a series of pools, rifles and small waterfalls. The soothing sounds of the flowing water are available as a scenic back drop for a stream side hike. The brook is easily accessed by following old logging trails through the mixed wood forest, down to the stream’s edge.
The acreage consists of over 45 acres of forested land as well as 35+- acres of manicured blueberry field. The field has been improved over the years to be able to accommodate mechanized harvesting. The field is a good candidate to transition to organic growing principles. The wooded areas surrounding the berry field were harvested about 10 years ago, and are growing back very well. Scenic views across the forested valleys are very nice.
