Additional Information

Description

We bought the farm in 2011 and have transitioned to organic practices. Our vision is a multi-family operation with multiple independent endeavors collaborating when necessary. We imagine overlapping skill sets with the possibility of covering for others allowing occasional absences when desired or necessary. Currently three families are involved. Two live on immediately adjacent properties. There are three generations living here and we imagine that to continue. Our specific interest at the moment is to find someone to take over the management of the goat herd and connected product creation and sales. Meat, milk, cheese (fresh and aged) and yogurt are all produced in season. The idea is that the entire management of the herd and production would become the enterprises for the new (individual(s). Initial residence for this individual would be in the cabin. The cabin could be expanded over time or the second building lot would also be a possibility

Farmhouse: 3 bedroom, wood frame, heat pump and wood stove, 1 1/2 bathrooms. 2 story, full basement.

Second living quarters: Cabin with loft. Electricity, propane heat and hot water. One bath. Crawl space

This is a multi-family Farm. You would be buying a share of the LLC giving you decision /voting rights and use of the cabin. Cabin could be expanded in the future. There also is a second building site available.

No chemical sprays or fertilizer. We are organic/biodynamic in our orientation.

Asking price: $95,000
