For Lease: 27 acres fenced land.


Description

We have a farm in Marion County with 27 acres available for lease.   These are fenced grazing lands with some flat areas that have been cultivated.  The fencing has just been rebuilt and replaced as needed, and is good for sheep and goats.  We are not interested in having cattle on the place.

We also have some barns that are available for lease separately.   These barns consist of cow barns, hay barn, and hoop barn, with a few acres of ground around them.   These barns are next to two ponds that have been flushed out and tested as clean last spring.   The Water master has determined that this water can be used for irrigation.

We are looking for someone to use and manage the land.  We are also looking for someone that may want to use the barns
