Description

We are looking to find an organic farmer(s) to rent a 2-bedroom, 1 bath apartment for $1400/month which includes access to 2 acres of cultivated market garden beds.  The land is 50 acres of lake front, mixed woodland, wetland, pasture, gardens and 2 houses.

The 2 acres of garden beds have been meticulously cultivated over the past 4 seasons by dedicated farmers who are moving on. The beds are fertile with added compost, fertilizers, cover crops and light to no-till.  There is plenty of room for hoop houses.

We are looking for passionate organic farmer(s) who will take over the stewardship of this long-time family property.
