Additional Information

Description

Description of farm:

· Irrigation: 30 acres of farmland are fully irrigated with drip system. All water comes from a well but a brook and two ponds are available.

· Practices: No chemical herbicides, pesticides, or fungicides have been used on this farm for the last 45 years. Net Zero Natural Ionized Water Practices

· 3 complete High Tunnel Green Houses: 2160 ft2 (72’x30’)

Vision: I would like to lease my farmland to a motivated person who wants to continue the development of the farm with a lease of the land or a possible buy out. The farm’s orchard and vineyard will reach peak production in 3 to 4 years and will need someone motivated to fully realize the farms potential. Possible business directions a new owner could go are:

· Winery

· Educational use and outdoor recreation

· Produce sales

· Cider production

· Brook side cabins
