This property was a smaller, traditional family operated dairy operation for many years with the milking facility and manure lagoons decommissioned and CAFO Permit cancelled. However, the loft barn, freestall barn, loafing shed and feeder barn are all in decent condition. It maybe possible to certify the dairy as an organic unit as the facility has been unused for 15 years. The owner currently produces grass hay, pasture and annual crops for sale.
