Farm description

We are the 3rd owners of this farm which we bought from a farmer who took it over in 1929. The farm was set up to finish cattle and the previous owner used to unload cattle from the west right here at the gate when the trainline came through the property. The train line is now removed and land from the tracks is now part of our farm. The house sits in a hamlet with the balance of the property extending behind the houses in the hamlet. The property has natural creek and river boarders so it has a pretty unique eco system. When we took it over, we used it mainly for horses but we are now retired from that and just finish a few grass fed beef and raise meat chicken in the summer and keep a few egg layers. We have 35 acres of hay which we harvest for our stock and we sell off the rest. We would like to see this farm continue as close to biodiverse or ecologically friendly as possible. We currently have a small off grid camp site and I would like to see farm tours and farm stays in it's future. There is plenty of unused pasture and we have 2 creeks an a river as a water source. We would like to see a mix of livestock and vegetable/ herb gardens along with continuing with the hay operation.

Farm opportunity

We are looking for a long term commitment. Someone who wants to start as a joint venture to ensure a partnership is a good fit. We would like someone who is interested in taking over the farm business with a future commitment to purchase the land. We would be interested in setting up a 2nd dwelling space for this long term commitment. This agreement will commence in stages, Starting with an MOU and progressing to This opportunity will eventually turn in to a lease to own type sale of the property with us living on the farm for the rest of our lives. My husband is ready to retire now but can mentor and work with the equipment and I will be ready to retire in 10 years.
