Haven Heritage Farm
Haven Heritage Farm is an original 1880's gentleman's farm with 68 acres M/L of fertile farm ground (that has the option to be certified organic) located less than 4 miles from town that operated as a Grade A dairy farm until summer 2018. This property would be perfect to continue as a dairy farm, or for a beef operation. If you're interested in dairy, the owners invested over $40k into upgrading the milk barn that includes a new cooling unit, and over $25k into new fencing. The property is broken in 8 pastures for rotational grazing with an alley connecting all of them (perfect for a one-man operation for beef or dairy), with 3 waterers, 2 ponds and 1 wet weather pond. DFA & Central Equity have confirmed they will pick up from this farm & Kalona Organic will ship. In addition, there is a root cellar, shop and storage buildings with concrete floors and a 30x60 high-tunnel greenhouse. Owners are currently on a waiting list for USDA contract for new holding pen and waste management system.
Now let's move onto the picturesque farmhouse! The original house that was built in the 1880's sits atop a hill and has gone through extensive renovations including new septic, plumbing, & 200 amp electrical service with new power poles to the farm & the house is partially rewired. Even with all of the renovations, the current owners made sure to maintain the homes history and character with bead board and shiplap walls. The downstairs has been completely renovated with walls removed and space opened up, and includes a brand new kitchen with Jenn-Air appliances, a new master with en suite bathroom, and second full bathroom w/ laundry. Minimal work has been done on the upstairs. It will need new flooring and paint to make it nice; however, it does currently function as 3 bedrooms.
Farm is located outside city limits right off of the blacktop, but home is set back on the property for privacy. It's only 5 minutes from the school and just a few minutes from town. Plus, it also has high-speed cable internet!
Owners are willing to sell the house, outbuildings, and 8 acres separately. Call for details.
