Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):
Currently farming approx 8 acres, including a 1-1/2 acre hops yard. Most of the acreage is populated with fruit trees, berry bushes, and Xmas trees. We also have a vegetable garden and a berry bush garden. The property also has huge foraging potential as we have wild nut trees, lots of wild edible mushrooms, and many varities of wild berries. We also have a pond and wetlands areas that are suitable for aquaponics and other agricultural uses. The long-range plan is to build a brewery with a food operation that will utilize as much of what naturally occurs along with what we are consciously growing. The opportunities are endless. Do not hesitate to contact the owner with an idea for a new venture that would work with what is currently happening on the property.

Unclear on past history. Soils were tested prior to my purchase of the property in 2011 and the soil is clean and excellent for most agricultural uses.
Infrastructure and equipment:

Livestock/crops description :
The only limitations on livestock and crops are a function of peacefully co-existing with an existing 18-hole Disc Golf course on-site and the future brewery location. Really open to any idea a farm manager may have!
Description of tenure options:
I am predominanly seeking a Farm Manager / Grounds Manager but this could expand into becoming involved with the brewery and the food operation if desirable by both parties. The opportunity also exists for the prospective "farmer" to design, create, operate, and share in the profits of other revenue centers if we so choose. For example, if the farmer creates and operates a CSA or works with creating and operating a mushrooming operation on site then we could create a partnership agreement for those revenue centers.
