Additional Information

Description

289 acres with so much potential. Currently a working organic dairy farm, the gorgeous contiguous property is located just 2 miles from downtown and is set far from the road a top a hill with the road to the farm maintained by town. The rolling green pastures and cropland make up 156 acres, 120 acres of timberland, and 13 acres of homestead. Surrounded by 3/4 mile of the west branch of the Wesserunsett Stream, this property is not only beautiful, but full of many dynamic resources. Possibility to continue milking cows, but beef, pork, vegetables, or harvesting and selling feed are all other income possibilities.

This farm has been producing food for Skowhegan and the surrounding communities for generations. I am the second generation in my family milking cows here and I added the diversity of beef, pork, vegetables, and chickens to the income stream of the farm. This land is amazing and I am sure that the new owners will create something amazing.

The farmhouse is a single family 1.5 story, 4 bedroom home with septic tank and drilled well. The original house was built circa 1850 and has been renovated and remodeled a number of times. The first floor has a full bathroom and there is a separate laundry room. There are two wood stoves for heat and a working oil furnace with a duct system and tank in the basement. In the last 10 years there has been new insulation installed in parts of the house, new windows, and a new door installed. Additionally, the living room and one bedroom have been renovated.
