- You have the desire to be in the outdoors, grow your own food, control your own destiny, provide a great environment for your family and friends.
- You love fresh fruit, home grown vegetables, the ability to raise free range animals, or pasture for horses, llamas, or whatever your heart desires.
- You want your own bakery and country store.
- You want a really cool back yard (100 Acres) and lots of storage space (7 Out Buildings).
- You are tired of paying for poor water (2 artesian Wells) and sewage fees.
- You want country life with a cool twist: the mall is less than 15 minutes away, your kids can walk to school, you can see your neighbors; (but not so closely that you can hear your neighbors), Route 90 or 20 is only 1 mile away, a Lake Erie Beach is a long walk away ( about 3 miles), and you're on a school bus route so your road is the first one plowed.
- We have satellite TV but no Cable (Time Warner doesn't believe farmers deserve cable.)
Any of these sound like you or your family?
Call or stop by, we'll talk.
The first question is :Why, What's wrong? Why move?
Why are we for sale? We've been here since 1982, the barn was built in 1899, the house in 1900. The person we bought it from started in the early 1950's. They were the 2nd or 3rd owners. The farm started as dairy in the early years, migrated to fruit and row crops in the 50s. Mr. Kell (previous owner) added a 50 Acre parcel. We kept the fruit theme, went organic, expanded and updated the house (2007), and recently added (back) row crops and herbs. We have about 40 open Acres, so you can try whatever your heart desires without being fully committed to a new crop or plan. Keeping up the 30-50 Year Tradition of ownership, means finding a family to take the farm to the next level and into the next 100 years. We'll stick around and make recommendations if you want them, or not. And we're moving south (Crawford County or Southern Erie County).
What's Wrong? Actually, nothing. We're looking to buy more acreage and pursuing a Outdoor Outreach Ministry which we've been kicking around for the last several years. It is simply not practical where we are currently located.
