UNDER CONTRACT

The East Ridge Dairy property was operated as an organic dairy for over 30 years, milking 30-60 cows at various times. The property is currently used for small-scale dairy and hay production. Infrastructure on the property consists of a tie-stall dairy barn on the south side of Moody Town Road and a doublewide home with an a garage on the north side of the road, in addition to two small storage sheds. The original farmhouse and another barn were destroyed in a tornado about 16 years ago. In addition to the well for the residence, the barn has its own well that has been tested annually. The barn also includes all milking equipment.

The property is well suited to small-scale dairy, livestock, and hay.

The residence built in 2000 is a double‐wide (Endeavor Ritz Craft, floor plan #1528, serial #13,766) situated on a cement slab, includes 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. The residence also includes a Jacuzzi bathtub, back deck, and detached 1‐2 car garage. The garage is older and is a remnant of a past farmhouse that once occupied the site. The residence totals approximately 1,456 square feet. Heat sources include a forced hot air oil furnace and a wood stove. A septic tank and leach field (both installed in 1998) are located to the east of the garage. A drilled well is located in front of the residence (and a second well is located near the barn).

Equipment List:

• Vacuum tank with electric motor

• Four complete milking units with pulsators

• Compressor for bulk tank

• 650-gallon bulk tank

• Washing brain for bulk tank

• Pipeline, and pipeline washing brain

• Glass receiver jar

• Milk pump

• Barn cleaner with ramp and motor

The property will be sold subject to an Agricultural Conservation Easement held by Maine Farmland Trust

Priced at $159,375
