Property Details
With their dream realized in their beloved ‘Small Ones Farm,' it is time to pass the baton to a new generation of farmers! Since the multi-career couple bought their 63 A Farm 18 years ago, they have expanded its offerings & integrated it into the local community. By employing organic & other earth-friendly farming practices (authenticated by Certified Naturally Grown), they succeeded in creating a productive & community oriented farm, notable for its diversified crops & climate mitigation systems. There are 35 tillable acres (21 in active production), over 500 fruit trees & 900 row-feet of berries. The produce is sold via the on-site farm stand & CSA shares. The Farm’s outreach programs include the summer Orchestra in the Orchard series with the Valley Winds; school group visits & donations to area food banks; internships for college credits & retreats; apple picking & academic research on apples, bees, turtles, birds.Their ‘pie fundraisers’ raised thousands for civic groups.
