|UNIQUE BELFAST FARM|
Sq. Ft.: 2,500
This is a unique opportunity to operate a small farm less than two miles from downtown Belfast, on a beautiful riverfront setting surrounded by over 150 acres of conservation land.
A farmer has the chance to purchase a restored antique home on 3 acres of land and to lease an additional 60 acres of abutting land. The leased land consists of about 20 acres of rolling fields suitable for either crops or livestock, and about 40 acres of woods that can be sustainably harvested. This property is ideally suited for a small farm selling locally, either onsite and/or at other local market venues.
The farmer would be assured a long-term lease (25 years, with an option to renew) and the flexibility to use the leased land for a broad range of agricultural practices and to install fencing and erect agricultural buildings on the leased land.
The additional 60 acres is offered for lease rather than for sale because the land is owned by Coastal Mountains Land Trust (CMLT). CMLT purchased this property as part of larger parcel of riverfront land that cannot be developed, on which they plan to create a trail system ultimately extending along the riverfront to downtown Belfast. Leasing the land rather than owning it will place some constraints on the farmer, but these constraints will be more than offset by many special benefits, which include:
Purchase price (for house and 3 acres): $254,000
