Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

My husband and I will restore the old farmhouse and farm equipment as retirement hobbies in the summertime. If one tenant does not want entire farm, portions can be rented. We are selling larger farmland parcels which could be included with this farm.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

One tenant will rent the entire 52-acre farm, with right-of-first-refusal in the event our children decide to sell.
