Common Earth Farms which is operated on the property as an LLC provides approximately 1 acre of production area, with the adjoining property offering another acre at no cost. On the property is a fully functioning, high efficiency greenhouse (50’ x 40’), a farm stand, plant sale area and large shed which stores farm equipment to include tractor. In addition, there are 2 additional greenhouse structures in disrepair but with great potential (renovation plans available).

The farming portion of this property is currently resourced by new American families (two highly experienced farm masters) who are the sole growers of otherwise unavailable ethnic foods for the greater Manchester area. The farm also offers volunteer opportunities to local teens, exposing them to alternative cultures and farming/agricultural skills. Currently, all profits go to the farmers who live in Manchester.

The seller seeks a buyer who will continue to grow/allow the growth of high demand ethnic foods. This is an ethical property sale as many families in the area are dependent upon the land to grow traditional foods. This sustainable farm concept is profitable.  The current owner will be available to help transition the buyer.
