Description

I am looking for a part-time or full-time farmer interested in creating a working farm and homesteading operation in conjunction with the brewery on site.  The property has approximately 12-15 acres of available land and another 15 acres of forest.  2-3 acres are suitable for vegetables, with the remainder suitable for pasture.  There is additional acreage more suitable for hay and similar crops next door.  The farm has done a mix of pastured pork, pastured chicken, various vegetable crops, hops, and other social farming over the years.

There is a small greenhouse that was damaged but could be repaired and reskinned with associated infrastructure.  The farm has a tractor with various implements and receives organic waste (spent grain) from the brewery, which also rents on the property.  There is a mobile chicken coop, a shipping-container pair of workshops, and other small infrastructure on the farm, but no large barn.
