Very interesting.  Ron, remember that idea you were discussing with Mr. Realtor the other night?

Yup, this is a very nice property.  At $595,000, though, it's pricey.  Not many FSPers with the resources to purchase such a place.  It would have to generate a lot of cash in rents or farming production to be a money-making investment.  But is someone with the money wants to take a look at the place, let me know.  We can probably negotiate down the final purchase price.

Nice, but hasn't been certified organic since 2002, which means another bunch of years of waiting for re-cert.

Plus, with only 7 + OPEN acres, there isn't enough land for organic beef or sheep (or horses), PLUS vegies. Plus, only 2 BR? And the "pole building" remains otherwise undescribed (size, use, etc.) "Passive solar" with wood stove backup - be prepared to work hard!

Too many negatives for the price, IMHO. You can get a bigger, well worked, organic farm in parts of NY for a lot (!!) less money. Of course, who in their right mind wants to be in New York?? It's not the free state!!

That would be a good investment, these days.  The farming community is not keeping up with the demand for organic foods, which carry a higher premium.  Plus, it's a but tougher for the feds to justify seizing it... unless they show up and say, "Hey, I just found these viles of crack cocaine here.  Good argument for putting in hidden cameras, eh.

Not only that, it was ranked the LEAST free state; 50th out of 50.

If the purpose is a farming, then the important factor is how well things grow.  New England has been largely abandoned as productive farmland. There may be some marginally productive farming use, but (as previously mentioned above) the return has to support the value.  There is a good market for (unprofitable) hobby farms, and it sound like that is what this seller is aiming for.
