Additional Information


The Foundation for a Sustainable Future is pleased to offer for sale a discrete and private portion of its 1,296± acre Vermont headquarters, SHO Farm.  The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit promoting land and biodiversity conservation, ecological innovation, and the evolution of consciousness.  The Foundation is selling a portion of SHO Farm to raise funds for its rescue duck sanctuary and next wave of land-based work, including establishing a permanent wildlife preserve, researching agroecological-wild farming, and continuing its wild gastronomy project.
The Foundation prefers to retain ownership of as much acreage as possible to limit fragmentation of its intact conservation landscape.  It also recognizes that more acreage may be desirable for some buyers.  Therefore, the Foundation is offering two different configurations for a buyer to consider.  Both offerings are enfolded by the Foundation’s retained 1,100± acres, and sit beneath Camel's Hump, one of the highest and wildest ridgelines in the Green Mountains.
Offering 1 - $4,250,000 | The Farmstead at SHO represents the Foundation’s first major project, an artfully-crafted, high-performance farmstead which includes buildings, renewable heat and electrical systems, and a 10 year old food system.  The Farmstead includes 45± acres, the Farmhouse, Energy Barn, Studio Barn, and Caretaker's Residence, totaling 32,750± square feet of space, of which 25,000± square feet were recently ecologically-designed, renovated and built by Birdseye Building Co.  A swimming pond, gardens, mature 8± acre permaculture-designed orchard comprised of diverse fruits, nuts, and perennial plantings, two streams, frontage along Brush Brook, total privacy, and unobstructed, protected views of Camel's Hump and the Green Mountain ridgeline complete the offering.  
Offering 2 - $5,750,000 | The Farmstead plus 140± acres, for a total of 185± acres.  The additional acreage features open fields and pastures adjacent to the entrance, a sugarbush, rich deer habitat, and a hidden brookside apple orchard.
