    Farm ID 3328
Property Description:

This farm is a beautiful private spot, yet only a couple miles from the center of town. Originally in a trust with the University of Massachusetts, this farm was only first available in 2015. We have put a lot of love into it for the last 4 years to bring back to life a farm that was forlorn and abandoned before. We would like to see the next farmers continue to rebuild the soils and reclaim the once open fields and also to continue to produce goods for the markets we are leaving in the surrounding areas.

Farmhouse: The two bedroom, one bath was completely renovated in 2015 including new electrical, plumbing, spray foam insulation, and roof. It is all pine inside and open floor plan with one loft bedroom and one bedroom on first floor. The house is heated primarily by one wood stove, but there is back up kerosene monitor heater. To finish the house it needs windows, siding, and trim. Current owner could do this work for potential buyer.

Equipment: All milking equipment including 4 Nu Pulse units, bulk tank, vacuum pump, and gutter cleaner will be included. There is a lot of other equipment available for sale including all spreading, haying, and vegetable production equipment that will be sold separately.

Potential for an extra 100 acres across the street for an price or available to lease by the buyer of original farm.

Priced at $199,000

Easement through Maine Farmland Trust has been approved, but not finalized.
