 Seeking a young farmer for farm startup.  Housing provided on 41 acre farm 1 mile from metro north train station in Wingdale, NY.  We are open to a range of experience levels.  We will be transitioning a horse property to food production with our first year goal being a small CSA and limited greenmarket participation.  Ideal candidate will have completed an apprenticeship and ready to take the next step, but there are possibilities for more or less experience.  We are very collaborative and open to new ideas.

 FO197  30 Acre – Haymeadow Farm, with its collection of large barns and out buildings, nine building lots and very productive hayfield, offers many opportunities for farming.  The house is a very livable 4 bedroom – one bath.  The soils are a fertile sandy loam.  The fields are well-draining.  The hayfield produces about 200 large round bales in two cuttings per season  
There are three frost free underground hose bibs to differing locations throughout the barns and property.  The farm is located about ¼ mile from the world famous Meadowmount School of Music and everyone loves the fresh produce offerings.  I have rented rooms to students who need to be able to walk to school.  I would love to see a CSA or small farming operation with emphasis on sustainability flourish in this beautiful location.
 FO198  Fox Run Farm consists of an historic well preserved collection of buildings on 35 well-draining soils.  The existing structures are an English Timber Frame barn with double transom windows.  This structure was likely built around 1795.  There is a more modern, 1920’s rear addition consisting of 13 wooden pegged stanchions and two birthing stalls.  Overall the barn is in excellent shape with metal roof in good condition.  The existing house is a center hall Greek Revival dating from about 1845.  I have undertaken some restoration projects including accurate window recreation complete with old, wavy glass.  New 220 underground electric was brought to the existing ell and is inspected and running.  There are a few hand dug stone lined wells on the property.  Finally, there is a two-seater outhouse !  
     I would love to see someone who loves and appreciates historic integrity and has a passion for niche farming ….melons, berries, flowers, veggies, etc. …..   The location is ideal.  Property is two miles from the town of Elizabethtown – the Essex County Seat.  The majority of the property is forested; mostly pines, but maples, birch and oak groves are coming in.  I am also open to the idea of a like-minded community of people sharing the property.  There are about 10 building lots which provide a wonderful opportunity for a co-housing association.
