Great opportunity to own an operating organic farm known as the Iroquois Organic Farm overlooking the St. Lawrence River on NYS Rte 37 known as the Great Lakes Seaway Trail, a 518 mile National Scenic Byway.
The farm includes a total of 224+- acres including 140+- certified organic tillable acres. This unique property also includes the Tilden Stage Inn, an 1840s cut stone house with plenty of history. The Inn recently renovated is built on a full basement. The 1st floor includes a kitchen area, dining room, 2 large parlors with a player piano and antique furnishings plus a full bathroom. On the 2nd floor there are 4 large furnished bedrooms each with a private sink and there are 2 full bathrooms. The Inn was formerly a tavern and a stage coach stop in the 1800s. Most recently it was used as a bed & breakfast for guests visiting the farm and for those traveling through the area.
There is also a fully-equipped restaurant that previously operated as farm-to-table, a former dairy barn with several outbuildings and 2 single family houses including a barn plus there are 2 greenhouses for growing vegetables and other crops. The major organic crops that have been grown on the farm are sweet corn, soy and buckwheat. In 2019 they grew their 1st crop of Hemp. Today you can grow Hemp and now Marijuana with the recently passed law. There are 5.56 acres of land between the farm and the St. Lawrence River that is owned by the Power Authority which could be purchased according to the seller at a reasonable price which would include 2,188 ft. of water frontage. In the interim, according to the seller, he has a right as would the new owner to cross the land to reach the river for irrigation if needed and could install a dock for boating, fishing and swimming. Some of the land with frontage on Rte 37 overlooking the river could be subdivided for residential houses and/or condos. The buildings are being sold as-is with all furnishings and equipment present with the seller planning to retire. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to own an operating Farm, revitalize the Inn and the Restaurant, all with potential revenue streams and have more control over your own destiny and that of your family.
