From the Zillow listing:


This beautiful 1844 Greek Revival farmstead is currently a 501c3 nonprofit sanctuary for farm animals, advocacy, education, and regenerative agriculture. With the sanctuary needs outgrowing what this property can support, it’s time for the animals to move on to a bigger property which leaves a great opportunity for you to call this farm your own! The organic farm encompasses 20 acres of rolling meadows with 3 ponds, a 4 bedroom, 3 bath farmhouse and two large barns. Featuring generous sized rooms, 9′ ceilings, beautiful floors throughout, an updated kitchen and a welcoming family room overlooking the farm yard below, you’ll have all the “Vermont feels” going on when you open the door. The garage space has been made into a welcoming social area and the loft in the big barn is a great space for private parties. There’s even a greenhouse, orchard and lots of fruit bearing perrenials such as cherries, plums, peaches, pears, apples, berries and more!Easy walking trails, great for riding horses, walking the dog or just enjoying nature. Closing contingent on seller finding suitable property. Come see where home could be! (Drive in carefully as a myriad chickens, ducks and turkeys roam the barnyard freely). Showings start 1/16/22.
