Additional Information

Description

Lovingly Nurtured Farm with fertile farmland, barns, mountain views, streams, and a newer 3BR house.  The animal barn has a poured concrete floor, ample hay storage & water hydrants.  The Vegetable barn has new sills, posts, shingles, and metal roof, plus a 4x6 Walk-In Cooler.  It has held literally tons of vegetables ready for market!  Although it awaits finishing touches, the Hand-Hewn, Post & Beam Tall-Posted Cape is stunning.  Erected by its community in 2010 with a traditional Barn-Raising, this house is full of warmth and character, and even has an attached Glass Greenhouse- a great place to start seedlings.  There are maple trees to tap and streams to follow; various sledding hills to choose from; rock walls to explore; an enticing mix of wildlife habitat and beautiful mixed hardwood lot; and a piece of history in the old Troy Meeting House on this very property.  Fiber-optic internet is installed and this farm is 40 mins to Belfast or Waterville, and 100 mins to Portland.  Maine Organic Farmers and Gardenser Association headquarters and Common Ground Country Fair are only 20 minutes away!
