Farm History & Past Use

We purchased the property from the “original” owner, it had been in his family as far back as he could find.  He was a farrier and kept his own horses there.  We purchased in 2018 and have been leasing the space to a nonprofit church rescue group.  They had horses, goats & donkeys.

Livestock / Crops Description

Additional Property Information

We always encourage potential tenants to ask questions at the Town to see if their plans will work for the property.  This is located on a private road with private residences.  One thing we know for sure is you cannot have a retail space at this location.  It would have to be service based or utilized and anything sold has to be sold off site.
