    Farm ID 3261
Property Description:

We've farmed in Blanchard for about 40 years. Selling because we want to retire. We have raised Herefords, Fallow deer, and buffalo here on the farm. We have restored fields, and built barns. We are extremely active in soil and water conservation, and have implemented those practices on the land. We built the farm into one that thousands of people have visited over the years whether on tours, school groups, church groups, Scouting, home schoolers, Soil and Water Conservation camp, and Maple Sugar seminars, they have all used our farm for agriculture education. We would love to see some sort of agriculture continue here on the farm. We'd like to find someone who values the land and this way of life the way we do.

Farm house was build around 1850, but continually updated. Baseboard hot water heat with a System 2000 boiler, oil. Wood furnace back up heat, heat pump for heat and cooling. Two story home, three bedrooms, two baths, kitchen rebuild in 2001. New roof, well insulated, shingle siding, attractive lawns with apple, pear, and mulberry trees. Drilled well, 1000 gallon septic cleaned 2017. Shop has it's own septic.

Priced at $359,000
