Additional Information

Description

The Cobb Farm was settled and built in the later 1700's by my great grandfather, Nathan Fisher Cobb. It has been passed by my paternal lineage to me. The farm was originally over a thousand acres but has now dwindled to just over 27. It has had orchards, been a strawberry farm, a dairy farm, had free range beef, sweet corn, pumpkins and a trellised grape vineyard. We are currently salvaging a post and beam barn that held nearly 40 Holstein cattle and 30,000 square bales of hay in its loft. We are also in the process of rehabbing a smaller hay barn for farm use. The farm had always adapted in order to survive, so my only wish is that the new owners make it authentically their own and lead it to a profitable position. The farm meant family to me growing up and that is the energy that waits for anyone willing to venture its ownership.
