Additional Information

Description

Lucas Brook farm was a small dairy farm that follows a beutiful winding brook . It is hilly with pastures spread out through the woods and on top of hills. Our first dream was to plant a permaculture garden with fruit and nut trees. Then we started raising ducks and chickens and soon had a beautiful free foraging flock of birds. Then people started bringing calves to our barn and some pigs and soon we realized that we had a small farm. We do not have the time to bring this beautiful place back to being a functional farm, though we work hard on weekends and a neighbor keeps the animals happy during the week. We are looking for a farmer that we can collaborate with or who would rent the farm entirely. We will help in whatever way we can to make sure the farm flourishes and that we have a happy neighbor.
