Description

Cherished and loved family farm that has served the community for many years as a "pick your own" blueberry farm called, Tikkanen Blueberry Farm. Located at the border of Connecticut and Rhode Island this relatively flat property has approximately 40%+- of its acreage dedicated to berries with the rest of the land lightly treed to treed. A sleepy stream lazily meanders through the property making time seem to stand still. The 3 bed/2 full bath well maintained home has a sauna in the basement to relax in after a rewarding day working on the farm. There is also a secondary heating system which is an outdoor wood furnace to keep you toasty warm in the winter months. The steel barn has an officetack area/workroom and plenty of space to store equipment. There will be a tenant in the house on a month-to-month basis so please do not drive into the property without an appointment. All showings are by appointment only so call to schedule yours today. You won't be disappointed.
