For Lease: 4-6 Acres in Scotts Mills

Description

Potential match would need to have some working knowledge of farming and an understanding of the intense hours required to maintain a working farm.
In addition to being a working farm, we also offer farm stays on the property so they must also be aware that the aesthetics of the garden are important to the overall look of the property. And safety and cleanliness are paramount!


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Continue sustainable hay production, host an organic or no spray market veg. garden. Some small animals, chickens, foul, sheep. Maintain the landscaping to enjoy the beauty of the farm as a retreat as well as a working farm.
We have bees too!


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Reclaim the 40 acres of Christmas trees and plant some kind of sustainable or organic crop that will support the farm.
Expand what we currently offer guests (the opportunity to get away from the city and enjoy the rural way of life). Incorporate some wellness getaways, nature walks, etc...
Would love to have a working relationship with some likeminded folk who can see the vision for this amazing property. The possibilities are limitless!
