The Warren Farm & Sugarhouse specializes in the production of pure maple syrup and a unique, specialty food product line that utilizes maple as a main ingredient. The sugarhouse holds a 4x14' SS evaporator and includes an annex for filtering and bottling. There are over 3000 taps avaiable - both on the farm and on the surrounding 250 acres owned by the Worcester Diocese, with permission to tap and 1st right to own. The farm has 2 greenhouses and a high tunnel, along with a field crop area, 2 1/2 acre orchard, and berry and grape rows. There is also a small pasture with a lean-to. The hightest part of the farm, approx. 4 acres, would be perfect as a solar farm. One greenhouse is hard-sided and is perfect for controlled germination via grow mats and domes. Greenhouses come with grow mats, domes, flats, cells, and pots. There are also potting benches, a docimeter, and irrigation lines. The larger of the 2 greenhouses has been used transformed into a maple history museum each March for sugaring tours, and can seat 50 people. The sturdy barn is divided into a workshop and the farm retail shop. Its loft is dry and perfect for storage, and the floor is cement. A wide driveway separates the barn from the house. The federally licensed commercial kitchen is attached to the house by a mudroom, and an attractive farmers porch which runs along the length of it. It contains all the necessary tables, shelving, prepping, and equipment necessary for specialty food production, bottling of maple syrup, and and production of maple value added products. It could also be rented out as additional revenue.
