Additional Dairy Farm For Sale Information
This highly productive river-bottom farm located on the Dog River with frontage on VT Route 12 is a scant 4 miles south of Vermont's capital city of Montpelier. The 138-acre farm includes 56 acres of prime agricultural soils and 56 acres of statewide agricultural soils. The farmstead is located on Rowell Hill Road, a quiet side road, and although the early 1800's farmhouse needs work, it's a hewn post and beam house that could be worth restoring. The house has 4 bedrooms, one bath and a 3-stall garage. The primary barns include a 100 x 44 foot Unadilla arch barn built in 1963 connected to a 120 x 64 foot solar Superstructure barn built in 2005. Other buildings include three open-front sheds, 74 x 28 feet, 49 x 20 feet, and 19 x 11 feet. Currently operating as a 50-cow dairy, the herd and equipment will leave the farm but the bulk tank will remain. A portable milking parlor is available at an additional cost. Although not operating as an organic farm, it could be certified as organic. The farm comes with an EQUIP contract with NRCS that includes cost share for stream bank stabilization, water systems and fencing, and a manure composting system. This would be a great farm for livestock or for vegetable production as well as a dairy. An extra bonus for rail enthusiasts is the New England Central Railroad and Amtrak's Vermonter that crosses the property. The Dog River is also well known for trout fishing.
