Additional Information

Description

The landowner believes that sustainablity of ag-based businesses depends upon having more that one person or family living on and using the land.  Multi-generations is preferable.  It is now a great time to bring in a second owner to this farm. One strong advantage is that there is an on-going viable business, the agritourism piece, along with agricultural possibilities. The current business was established here in 2001. The property is a beautiful west-facing hillside farm in central Vermont with ample land for more than the current operations which are plant central with only a small amount of poultry production.  Education, both the passive element that the campground facilities provide and organized school group programs, along with value-added products produced in the 10 year old farmhouse kitchen are the principle businesses.  Spring greenhouse production is also ongoing.  Homestead level raising of meat, vegetables, and maple make use of a small amount of the land. Since the need is for partners instead of an outright purchase it will be important to set up a working relationship to discover the right fit between potential owners and the current landowner. The ideal co-owners will be able to purchase half the value of the farm and campground and also build a house to live in.   Please check out the farm website for more information about the business:  fourspringsfarm.com
