Property Description:

True North Farms – Farmstead is a turn-key operation with a modern infrastructure. A 26-acre MOFGA certified organic mixed vegetable farm with 16 acres in open fields and 10 acres in woods. Five agricultural fields, comprising four acres in cultivation, have been planted with either cash crops or cover crops over the past ten years. Fields have been enriched annually with soil amendments and cover crops. Crop rotation has been practiced continuously. In 2018 the farm is growing 30 crop groups of 85 varieties. Centralized irrigation, indexed for drip or full pump pressure, feeds all five fields. Agricultural fields could be scaled up by an additional 6 acres if desired. Perennial crops include 150 feet of raspberries. Two seasonal cabins may be occupied by the farmer or farm workers during the growing season. (We occupied these buildings from April to November for four years before building our house.) Two other buildings, a barn (24’ x 32’) with a lean-to (16’ x 32’) plus a pump house. All buildings are under 10 years old. A double wall unheated high tunnel (30’ x 72’) is installed on the front of the land with sliding doors and surrounded by a French drain. A full range of agricultural implements are optionally available to the buyer. The property has a drilled well (12 gallons per minute) and a separate electrical service.
