Is the land for lease or sale?
Sale
Are you planning to train or be a mentor to a farmer who farms this land?
Yes
Please briefly explain the terms of the lease or sale
The farm is in Erie County, NY in the town of Elma. The whole farm is for sale and is certified organic through NOFA-NY. I would be glad to be a mentor to a buyer if they would like that.

Terms of sale: cash or possible assumable mortgage.

My reason for selling is that my husband passed on and it is hard to handle without him.

My email is gaylethorpe@icloud.com and my cell # is (716) 432-7883
How big is the total parcel of land?
21-50 acres
Additional details about how much is tillable, pasture and/or woodland
There are 30 total acres, 22 of which are tillable, deep, black fluffy muckland.
Is the land certified organic?
Yes
Any other details (Previous use, soils and water quality testing results, any synthetic chemicals used within three years etc.)
Please describe any existing infrastructure: fencing, irrigation, buildings or housing on the property
It includes a very nice 3-bedroom, 2-bath ranch house with a large attached garage, an insulated 30’ x 40’ vegetable storage building, another insulated washing/processing building, and equipment storage sheds. It has a large ditch around the property for drainage and has a 7 wire electric fence surrounding it also.

It could provide a family with income for generations to come. It is next to a main highway where a billboard or large sign could be set up for advertising. This property is very unique and almost prehistorically special. It has produced great organic crops for us, including radishes, lettuce, escarole, carrots, onions, sweet potatoes, potatoes, broccoli, cabbage, celery, beets, leeks, herbs, and all sorts of things.
