Alternatively, Farm for Rent
As an alternative to partnership, we offer most of our farm for rent to an experienced farmer and we seek a caretaker when we are not on-site. If we lease the farm for cash rent, we will not be involved in the planning or farm operation. I have divided the farm into sections, which could all be rented together or could be rented individually by individual farmers. Cash rent would be paid in advance and would be negotiated, taking into account equipment, tools, maintenance and buildings that would be included.
Sections of the farm (Diagram below is not to scale):
- Approximately 45-acre field
- Approximately 6-acre pasture
- Approximately ½ acre garden
We would also be looking for a caretaker for the farm when we are not on-site. The caretaker role might be coupled with one of the leased sections, or could stand alone. The caretaker could live in the small cottage on the farm.
