Until the 1950’s, this Francestown, NH area landmark had been a busy working farm. During its history, Elm Farm managed large herds of sheep, poultry, and one of the finest herds of Guernsey cattle in New England.  Produce rounded out its production. 

This gorgeous and productive 41.6 acre parcel of land offers excellent soils suitable for crops, hay and/or livestock. Some acreage is devoted to lovely meadows teeming with wildlife and a forested area. An historic 1860 40’ x 83’ classic drive-through barn is the focal point of this unique property. It has the original interior fixtures and loft, along with an antique water trough. It has been upgraded with 100 Amp electricity and new posts, sills, window panes and floorboards where needed. 

The farm acreage is conserved with an easement whose purpose is to preserve the farm and encourage agriculture in appreciation of the farm’s history. Therefore, farming is welcome and encouraged. The barn is not part of the easement but must convey with future transers of LOT 6-64 which IS the subject property being offered at an asking price of $235,000 for all the land and the barn.  Other monetizing uses of the barn such as antique auto storage or rental of barn space to a cabinet maker or potentially a produce stand are ideas that might be ALSO considered, but would have to meet with town zoning approval.  There is a two-acre approved house lot as part of the total acreage.
