The Rose Farm is enrolled in the Vermont Land Use Program, both agriculture and forestry. A local farmer cares for the meadows, hays the fields and grazes his prized herd of Belted Galloway beef cattle. The protected Rose Farm is in a coveted area of the Mad River Valley and is surrounded by lands dedicated to the Vermont Land Trust. The asking price is similar to the assessed valuation by the town of Waitsfield. The Rose family is keenly aware of proper stewardship of the land and thus would want a farming operation to continue on the property.
The Rose Farm has 112 acres of well-tended pastures and managed woodland offering privacy and protection. The acreage is enrolled in the Vermont Land Use Program, both agriculture and forestry which allows tax benefits to the land owner. Details of the forestry management program can be viewed by an interested buyer. Participation in the forestry program allows for planned harvesting of woodlands which encourages healthy growth and a financial benefit to the landowner. The farm is surrounded by preserved Vermont Trust land for added protection. A local farmer tends the pastures, hays the fields, and grazes his herd of outstanding Belted Galloway cattle on the property. The lease agreement with the farmer can be terminated by a new owner if the owner has his own agricultural plan. The south facing property includes the house, two barns, deep pond, glorious gardens and Vermont tranquility.
