Additional Information

Farm is located on a major US highway. Half way between Montpelier and St. Johnsbury. Good location for farm stand, direct marketing. An additional 30 acres of hayland (no rent) could be available to buyer if needed. There are several nearby houses for rent. Farm is very adaptable to other ag ventures other than dairying or moving from cows to goats. Farm probably not suitable for horses because of soil type.
