Condition & Current Use
Ingadi Farmhouse is a family owned and run farm situated on 127 acres of land in Pine Plains, NY. Over the past five years the family has been working to revive the land in order to create a nature sanctuary that inspires sustainable living and regenerative agricultural practices. We firmly believe that the American food system is in a dire state and our goal is to re-establish a connection with nature's resources and nutritious food. Our mission at Ingadi Farmhouse is to create an environment that promotes sustainable living by creating a unique, agrimersive experience for guests. Through engaging with the land and surrendering to the ubiquitous tranquility, we aim for our guests to leave feeling elevated, energized, and edacious for change.
In addition to a 9-stall, fully-equipped horse barn, over the last two years the family has worked to develop a 100x100 ft organic vegetable garden and a 2,000 sq ft hoop house with an additional 0.5 acres that has been prepared for planting. We are looking for a farmer with expertise in organic, regenerative farming practices that is interested in either leasing the land or is open to other tenure options where they can both grow their own produce as well as serve the house on-site and guests of the farm.
Farm History & Past Use
Previously named Silver Nails Mares Thoroughbred Farm, the property was used as an equine breeding facility.
We are in search of a farm manager to oversee agricultural production and barn management. If the farmer is not interested in leasing the land, we are open to discussing a partnership. While details would need to be discussed, our hope is that the farmer will be able to supply the house and its guests with fresh produce, in addition to their personal business. This position requires expertise in organic farming practices (and/or biodynamic) and knowledge in business management. No possibility for lease to buy as land not subdividable for sale.

Barns for Equipment/Storage
Ingadi farm is home to three barns/structures. On the west side of the Roeliff Jansen Kill river sit two 18th century styled barns, both of which are 4,000 square feet. As previously mentioned, one is a fully functioning, 9-stall horse barn featuring state of the art wash stalls, a feeding room, tack room, and office. Incuded is a premiere outdoor arena and 24-hour security. In addition to the main barn, there are four open-styled stables. The other barn, while it has great potential, requires renovations in order to secure its structure.
On the east side of the river is the Blue Barn, a 10,000 squarefoot structure. Currently we use a part of this space for storage, however, we recently began remodeling an area in order to include a full wash/ pack room (with walk-in refrigerator) and a drying room for herbs and spices.
On-site 1,500 square foot apartment. Consists of two bedrooms, one bathroom and a fully functioning kitchen.
