I am no farmer and this question should best be answered by your local co-op to take into considerations any local environmental issue that I would have no knowledge of. However I am very certain that horse droppings are the best fertilizer for any flowers or garden soil, so it would go hand in hand that any farmland that has been past horse pasture or horse property would have very fertile soil. I do believe the local Co-op can do a soil analysis for you to determine what you need for what you plan to grow!

Depends on the soil.

Soil, topography, and WATER. Farming requires more water than horses.

Confer with your local / county agriculture extension agent office - possibly through the county government or the USDA - as to general soil conditions conducive to crops that are suitable for the area. Have the soil tested relative to what crops would be most suited and/or what the soil needs as far as nutrients and such to enable various crops to be successfully grown and harvested. Good luck!
