We have reluctantly decided sell the farm in order to purchase a much larger operation and significantly expand our growing natural meat business. The farm features an historic Greek Revival brick farmhouse, circa 1865. It has had significant upgrades to all the internal living spaces, utilities and insulation. This farm is very functional and capable of being adaptable to a wide range of agricultural enterprises. It has been Certified Organic in past years and has had no prohibited substances applied, so could be immediately re-certified if needed. This farm is ideal for a buyer wanting a turnkey operation. It would make an excellent goat dairy, sheep/swine operation, beef enterprise or small organic dairy. The farm has been priced based on the agricultural value of the land and improvements and is not set for negotiation. $584,250 firm. Appraised value $601,400.
