Property for lease

Looking for a tenant gentleman farmer with lots of experience raising livestock and gardens. Would be an excellent opportunity for a couple that has time and financial resources that wants to homestead...not to survive but to have fun (e.g., grow the largest pumpkin). We see this as medium/long-term lease arrangement.
Additional Information

Description

Farm has hosted a pasture raised livestock operation in the past. A multi-variety 65-tree apple orchard has been established, about 15 acres of fields have been cleared and are growing cover crops and/or are being used as sheep/goat/cattle pasture. The balance of the property is being managed as a wildlife refuge with habitat for deer, moose, bear, woodcock and turkey. Owner has some hobby livestock (sheep & goats).

There is a rental cottage built in 2013 that is approximately 1,100 sqft and is for rent for ~$1,600/month with access to some land and equipment. We seek an experienced gentleman farmer/tenant with farming interests and the resources to live on-site and farm and utilize the property full-time. The ideal candidates would most likely be a couple with one working off-site and one working as a full-time gentleman farmer or a retired couple, both with farming interests.

This is a great opportunity for the right, experienced people looking to do something special that we can all enjoy and participate in making a success, even if success is defined simply as living on a working, fun and productive farm.
