Additional Information

Description

I'm offering a house/farm share situation in Limerick, Maine. The house is a small 2 bedroom, one bath, passive solar, heated by pellet stove (back up Rinnai), instant on generator, open concept, and very comfortable. Limerick is located near the NH border and less than 40 minutes to the coast/beaches. There are lots of agricultural/farm jobs, seasonal coastal jobs and Portland jobs within driving distance. This 5 acre (once hay field) farm is now being used as a horse farm. The back of the pasture is open (cut down in the fall) and is returning to wild blueberries. Could be an organic "Pick Your Own" or Farmer's market High Bush Blueberry Business. The land is open, southern exposure and does have potential for growing veggies, flowers, greenhouse operation, or fiber sheep. But...NOT Hemp or Marijuana businesses. There are 3 outbuildings and a 3 stall barn. I have pasture for a horse but no extra stall. Possibly could bring in a shed row. In the past I have held Pony Parties/Photo Garden events on the farm. There is a room in the main barn that can be used for small events/workshops. The barn interior is painted and kept clean for events. My farm is situated in a nice neighborhood of horse owners, homesteaders, artists and families. I'm offering the home share for $450.00 per month. This includes utilities, washer/dryer, wireless Wi-Fi, and cable TV. If interested in land use that could be discussed with your business plan or just personal use for growing veggies etc. The ideal person could be an empty nester, downsizing, retired, artist or a young farmer just starting out needing housing and land. Must be a financially responsible, trustworthy adult. A compatible person with an interest in the arts/music, gardening, horses and respectful of the land and nature. PLEASE...only "Clean Living" folks will be considered.
