Description

 

15-1131

 

 

We purchased this 30 acre parcel overlooking the Salmon River in 2010.  The property was previously a horse farm.  Approximately 15 acres is woodlands and the other 15 acres is cleared.  There are several large, flat fields.  One field was planted with approximately 60 fruit trees in 2013, and we are hoping to partner with or employ someone with some experience in growing greenhouse vegetables.  We are willing to install greenhouses on the property and would like to consider growing heirloom tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables, potentially for sale.  We are looking for a person or couple with farming experience who would like to farm the property.  We may be able to house this individual or couple in the apartment above the barn.  The barn has four horse stalls, and while we currently have no horses, if the interested party has a horse and needs a place to keep it, that is a possibility as well.  We are beginning farmers hoping to utilize our property in the smartest ways possible and are looking to partner with or employ someone with experience in farming who wishes to take advantage of this opportunity.

The Wintonbury Land Trust seeks to lease of a recently purchased farm, located on the west side of Bloomfield, across the street from 23 Duncaster Road.  The property consists of 17 acres of tillable land, some forest land, one pond, two wetland areas, and a historic bank barn.  The total land acreage is 45 acres.  The intent of the Land Trust is to find an energetic farmer who demonstrates the skills to operate this farm and presents a viable long term growth plan for this property.  The Historic barn is on the Connecticut Historic Barn list.  It is an 1870's bank barn with animal stalls on the lower level and generous clear height in the upper level.  The post/beam structure is sound, the roof is good, however much of the siding and wood floor sections are missing.  WLT feels some restoration work must be accomplished before it is useful.
