Additional Information

Description

The owner of a successful farm in Eastern Massachusetts is nearing retirement. He would like to see the farm operation continue and is looking to hire a General Farm Manager with the opportunity to be the next business owner.   

This well-established farm is a diversified business that combines a modern fruit and vegetable operation, with agri-tourism, a farm stand, bakery, PYO, CSA, educational and children’s programs, animal education area, a farm-to-table dinner series and a growing event business.  All the ventures are profitable to a greater or more modest degree.

This iconic 123 acre farm is improved with all necessary buildings, along with several offices which service different parts of the business. An established customer base is in place for all products. Strong community ties in a highly visible location add to this business’s promise. 

The successful candidate will first be an employee for a trial period. With that success, the employee and owner will transition to the sale and purchase of ownership of this business.   

Contact:  The contact person will be Bill at [email protected]. He has been hired by the current owner to assist in this effort. 

Only those interested and with the ability to obtain ultimate ownership need apply.
