Additional Information


Organic Farm Opportunity! This wonderful 716.8 +/- acre farm formally known as the Blissful Dairy is located in the quiet farming and lakefront town of Bridport, Vermont. From many areas of the farm there are gorgeous views of the Adirondack mountains in NY and the rolling fields of Addison County, VT. This is a Real Estate asset only sale; all livestock has been sold and equipment will be auctioned in the spring of 2023. The property includes two separate farmsteads less than 2 miles apart on the same road and features dairy barns, bunkers, a 10,000 SF heated sprout/storage steel building, sheds, (2) farmhouses (Currently Vacant), a ranch/doublewide home (rented), and an old mobile home needing replacement but with installed power, water and septic. The 10,000 SF building is currently empty and waiting for your vision and hosts the large solar array on its roof. The land consists of approximately 530 +/- acres of ag/pastureland and 66 +/- acres of woodland with the remainder in low utility and wetlands. The land is in Vermont Current Use program and has a Vermont Land Trust conservation easement. There is a 5-acre building lot outside of the VLT easement that will allow for another home to be constructed. The seller would consider selling both farms separately if the right opportunity is found. This is great opportunity of reinvention of the farm; take the blank slate and start new.
