Dear Farm Buyer, Lessee, or Potential Partner:
This is a very special place, from the birdsong, brook sounds, luscious soil, to the location literally minutes outside of our thriving arts/book-loving/brewer/diversity-celebrating town. Turnkey for a 4-season operation in a neighborhood with over 300 conserved acres, 2 other working farms, drive-by customers and great neighbors. Brattleboro is the economic hub of southern Vermont, with a fantastic year-round Farmers' Market, and a local Coop. There's a thriving network of farms, farmers, and farm customers within the community. Farm Camp is in its 15th year engaging youth in the life of a real family farm, and will be an excellent neighbor or potentially yours to take over. Currently runs as CSA, with kids helping to grow and cook their own food.
I'm open to outright buyers or capable investor(s) to share the opportunity and the excitement of building a sustainable, small-scale, quality-driven farm system. There are several potential housesites you could choose from without detracting from the beauty or productivity of the land if the old house/barn is not your passions. In fact, it is not under any development restrictions so if could be great agriculture/ sustainability oriented housing cooperative/land trust.
You (and your partner/family) are grounded, smart, capable, committed to sustainability/renewable energy/organics and financially ready. Priority will be given to those with some on-going or potential off-farm income stream, marketing, berry, perennial, honey, sugaring or livestock experience, although money and a passion for hard-work and follow through could "trump" that, and I look forward to hearing your enterprise ideas.
Come walk the land, look at photos, tell me your vision. I'm continuing to farm here in the meantime and run Farm Camp/SEED.
