Description

UNDER CONTRACT

This 107 acre parcel was part of a 400 acre dairy farm in the past and current use has been hayland. The land has been been fertilized on a regular basis with cow and hen manure and has been certified organic with MOFGA for aprox 25 years. There is a large brook between the fields that could be used for irrigation. The field road has a concrete bridge over the brook that was designed by soil conservation service. Current use is hayland but could be used for a large variety of other growing. The fields are gently sloping and rock free. There is also a neighboring field that is 10+ acres that I lease, and would be available for future leasing. There is also an arrangement with a local organic farmer who will buy whatever hay is available, if desired.

House was totally remolded in 2002, including new electrical and baseboard hot water heating. It has a porch on the back with an office space, and there is also 2 hookups for woodstoves. There is a 40 x 48 hay and machinery storage barn built in 2004 and has a metal roof. Also there is a 32 x 40 workshop/garage with 12 foot ceiling built in 2008, which is currently used as automotive/machinery repair and sales with hot air furnace and automotive lift, along with a metal roof. There is a 16 x 20 horse barn that is currently being used as a goat barn, it has box stalls and exercise area. All buildings are in very good condition with artesian well that produces over 20 gallons per minute.

Priced at $450,000
