About Land First

Land First is about helping you own dream property. Ownership you can enjoy, benefiting you for years to come.

Before we began delivering beautiful rural real estate to folks like yourself, we discovered important land knowledge from others.

Ours is a story about family and a dream come true. Across generations, for almost 400 years, the Ellis family, has nurtured an appreciation for northeastern woods, north country rivers and Upstate New York lakes. Those who work within Land First have similar histories and backgrounds too.

Our heritage is tied to small communities within the historic northeastern forests and meandering waterways. Our ancestors lived close to the wilderness, working in the woods, farming the countryside and exploring endless shorelines. They valued their surroundings as natural treasures, respecting the beauty and enjoying the bounty. As good land stewards, their dream was to enjoy the outdoors, preserve nature and help their rural communities - while sharing all these valuable experiences with others.

This way of life and land stewardship flowed like a river from generation to generation. The dream is now a great reality, as we deliver beautiful rural properties with forested lakes and wooded waterfronts directly to you. Legacy properties worth sharing with future generations.

Since 1998 the latest family generation is growing rural American communities within Land First. Our group helps other families realize the dream of owning their own natural treasure – a private getaway place or secluded home away from home – among the woods, wildlife and waters of Upstate New York. We offer rare acreage opportunities by pristine waterfront locations surrounded by large forest preserves. Currently, we offer unique properties near Lake Ontario, Salmon River, Tug Hill, Indian River Lakes, Western Adirondacks, and Thousand Islands Regions.

Since our founding we have acquired, readied and delivered over 3,000 beautiful acres. Hundreds of proud new property owners have discovered their dream together with Land First. People from all over America now grow their future with enjoyable property ownership. They discovered a way, now you can too.

So if you share the dream of a special place close to nature, then please give us a ring. Together we can make your important dream a great reality. From our family to yours, we look forward to visiting with you soon.
