Current farm owner looking to reduce involvement, possible lease out or partnership opportunity. On site housing (2018 built, c. 1400SF Townhouse) may be available in Fall of 2020.  Also, owner has multiple fully permitted building lots on site which could enable the right family to build their own house on site.  Beautiful mountain (Mt.

Would like to explore the possibility of expansion/diversification with another farmer(s) with new ideas and energy. Areas of expansion/diversification could include: retailing (direct to consumer) dairy products, vegetables, hemp, maple, distillery, beef, sheep/goats, in house crops/forage, logging, etc., etc.!
