  1. Farm ID 3564
Property Description:

My parents bought the property in the early 60's, when they bought it there was a farmhouse, an old barn down by the house. My dad built 2 huge barns one was built in the 60's with the milking parlor and milk room attached. In the early 70's he built on the 2 big barns. We milked 200 head of cows and then in 1986 we went in the dairy by out. From then on dad tried to find his place in the farming industry. We started out by growing silage corn to sell and putting up hay, in a couple years we stopped growing silage corn and kept growing baleage and dry hay. We also started raising beef and eventually got into growing pigs to sell as meat and after a few years we did some breeding and having piglets born and sold piglets as well as growing for meat to sell. We have been growing turkeys, broilers, we also have 90 laying chickens to sell eggs. We have always grown 3 acres of sweet corn. We grow some veggies and sell them in the summer. There is a heated work shop to work on equipment, it has an oil furnace and a 275 oil tank. We have a 750 gallon skid tank that we put off road diesel in. Down by the farmhouse is a 40x40 2 car garage with storage upstairs. on one end of it is a overhead door which is where we store the firewood. I would like to see someone buy the farm and hopefully carry on the farm in anyway they see will make them happy. We are open to talking about the current animals on the farm being sold to the buyer along with any equipment we have that is not going to stay with us. Whatever the buyer doesn't want we will sell. We are trying to leave options open to what the buyer may want buy to help them with the operation they want to start. There is a huge potential on this property.  The farm is protected with an Agricultural Easement monitored by Maine Farmland Trust and can be reviewed anytime upon request.
