Additional Information

Description

Presently there is corn grown on property. Recently purchased for a non profit, Daniel's Table, we are looking for a talented farmer that would grow a large variety fo produce and share a % of that produce with the non profit so they can feed disadvantaged families.  

We want this property to be a showpiece in the community and the non profit will assist as best they can to create a place the potential Farmer will be proud of. 

Our plan is to rebuild barns and add chicken coup, goats and horses. This farm is a 15 minute walk away from downtown Northampton and offers excellent soils.
