Our farm has hosted cows, llamas, pigs, chickens and all kinds of garden crops.  The perma acre was cleared and mulched three years past and ready for a dream to happen.  The crown jewel on the farm is a brand new 20X40 greenhouse which invites someone with vision, energy and desire to create a business with.
