Description

Winter Farm was previously a horse breeding operation.  The total property is 22 acres with an occupied house on 5 of those acres.  The land available initially is up to 7 acres.  The open land is primarily hay fields separated into three pastures, each roughly 2.5 acres each, one includes a sand riding arena.  Two have run-in sheds, one has a small paddock as well as a two stall hay barn with a tack room.  The land is  healthy and open.  The fencing is older, +- 15 years post and oak rails.  It will need to be wired with electric or replaced for horses or cattle.  There is electricity in the barn.  I would love to see an organic vegetable farm on part of the land.  There is room for a farm stand if the barn is reworked.  Parking is available.  There is water in all pastures, but it is run from a shared well.  For irrigation we would need another water source. We would consider drilling another well. There are several springs nearby and a small pond.
