Truly a unique off-grid farm perched on a ridge with beautiful westerly views! Since 2012 this farm has operated as a medical cannabis production facility and was certified through Maine’s MOFGA MC3 certification program in 2016. The agricultural fields and greenhouses have great southerly exposure providing many opportunities for multiple crops and expansion. The forested land (approximately 35 acres) is a mix of mostly hardwood (oak & maple) and white pine. There is a lifetime supply of firewood and the wooded areas provide excellent fertile hunting grounds. There is ample water supply for agricultural purposes and it is of exceptionally quality with very low dissolved solids (ppm 10-15). It is situated down stream of a natural aquifer located on the property and also spring fed. As a result, it never runs empty providing a continuous year round water supply. There’s a photo-voltaic system with battery storage that runs the water pump, ventilation and irrigation system. It is easily expandable for future growth if desired.
There is a 16 x 24 heated 3-season heated (radiant floor & baseboard) greenhouse with attached 24 x 50 enclosed covered light deprivation and propagation area. This is powered by a stand alone photo-voltaic system complete with heat,irrigation and ventilation systems. Also included is a organic fertilizer production system. There is also a 8 x 12 chicken coop with a fenced in area.
There is a craftsmen style 1200sqft. home that is in excellent shape finished in 2008. It has 2-3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. It too has its own photo-voltaic system with diesel generator backup power. It includes both central heat (hot water baseboard) and a Vermont Castings wood stove. Roof and insulation upgrades in 2015.
The farm is at the end of a private deeded right of way six tenths of a mile from the nearest summer only occupied home. Although it is very private and rural, there’s a very charming coastal town, Damariscotta, that is located just 12 miles away. It offers many eminities including: a wonderful organic health food store, a very large supermarket, Local farmers market, 8-10 restaurants, several lumberyards, hardware stores, a large medical facility and much much more.
