Farm description

SERIOUS and COMMITTED FARMERS ONLY. You must be willing to work hard and have some of your own capital. For those seeking independence and success based on their own efforts, here is an opportunity to develop and grow your own farm-based business. Wherever your imagination and business skill set takes you. You must be self-directed and highly motivated.. Housing, equipment, mentorship and other resources could be available for the right long term agreement. Access to maple sugar bush, logging and firewood possible. Organic -ready for certification. Nestled in an ancient glacial valley, this pocket of sandy loam supported a farm family from 1870-1970. Pastured since, this plot includes approximately 25 acres of open, cleared land (some fenced), a 10 acre pond with fish, year-round creek, surrounding bush and a collection of garages (2), barn and a square timber log house shell. On a quiet township road with electricity and high speed at the fence, the area has a year round population that swells seasonally with cottagers who actively support the growing presence of local food production through a very successful local farmers' market, store and growing demand for local healthy food choices. With many lakes (the nearest only 1 km away) in this otherwise recreational area it offers the right candidate excellent lifestyle opportunities to live, work and have fun. Toronto is two hours south. A business model based on value-added crops and protein, market gardening, flowers and herbs, syrup production, greenhouses tapping into local geothermal and/or firewood etc. will help diversify farm income.
