BANNER SHEEP FARM contains one hundred and three acres, on the Lake road from Ithaca to Aurora, and within nineteen miles of Auburn. Its specialty is the breeding of sheep and the raising of hot house lambs for the winter market, they consist of Shropshire and Merino strain. The buildings which are in good repair, command a beautiful view of Cayuga Lake, as well as the country for a number of miles to the west. There is an apple orchard, and small fruits in great variety are raised, the soil being adapted to various kinds of products. Wells and springs furnish an ample supply of water to the house and barns. The previous owner was Samuel Dudley, from whom the farm was purchased by L. N. Close, and from him to his son A. N. Close, the present owner, who is a native of Cayuga County, born in 1873 and married Miss Ella Day in 1901; their family consists of one daughter.
