Here is an exceptional opportunity to own a 92 acre farm nicely located about 20 minutes from Kentville on Highway 12, the road crossing to the South Shore. The circa 1891 farmhouse and other structures are perched on the hill, well back off the road with long unobstructed views. Over the past 10 years the house has been well updated and renovated. It's been fully insulated, rooms have been opened up and all walls have new drywall. There's a new kitchen, one new bathroom, a second bath was fully upgraded, new windows, new siding, new steel roof and many other improvements. Inside offers about 1,500 square feet of living space including a country kitchen with dining space, sitting area and woodstove. Other main floor rooms include a mudroom with laundry, spacious living and diningroom and bathroom. Upstairs you'll love the sunny central foyer and 4 bedrooms (all with closets), and bathroom. Systems include septic, drilled well, water filter, wood stoves, electric heat and high-speed internet. Outside there's a large deck.

A nice bonus is a very cute ''second home'' with modern kitchen, living/diningroom, storage, bathroom and one bedroom. It's fully insulated and finished very nicely inside. The efficient woodstove and abundance of windows enhance the charm. Other outbuildings include a small insulated horse stable with wood floor, power, water and a larger section for hay storage. There's a garden shed by the gardens, a fully caged-in poultry and hen house with outside run. There are two useful tempos (hoops) for equipment storage and firewood, a small meat smokehouse and a really neat root cellar, fully insulated with shelving and finished outside with earth and big rock.

The barn has been completely renovated and updated to meet HACCP certification. The main part of this two story building is fully insulated and has new windows, a steel roof and new Canexel siding. The main work space has a poured concrete floor with drain and epoxy paint. This production space has metal walls and ceiling and was built to commercial kitchen certification. A newer addition provides storage/warehouse space including a 12' x 18' walk-in chiller. The second level has more storage, a bathroom with shower, kitchen/laboratory area with water filtration system for food service and an open concept office space. Systems in this building include a septic tank for the drains and sinks, two hot water tanks, 200 amp electric, water, compressed air piped into sections of the building, electric heat and high-speed internet. An attached building provides storage for tools, wood and equipment. This building is ideal for most any food or beverage production business or for a family who enjoys preserving, fermenting, pickling and curing their own food. It could also be used for a woodworking shop, studio, dog boarding or your home based business.

The land includes approximately 92 acres with 70 acres of mixed forest, 6 acres of fenced pasture, orchard, berries and gardens. The orchard includes 600 apple trees (planted 5 years ago) of which 525 are Honey Crisp. The rest are heirloom apples including Kingston Blacks, Muscadet de Dieppe, Liberty, Bulmers and others. There are 750 highbush blueberry bushes, 4.5 rows (400 plants) of raspberries, 50 Black currant bushes and a few Haskap bushes.

You'll love the two large veggie garden areas with mostly raised beds, good drainage and access to water. There's a gravel roadway from the front, through the forest to the back of the property. Beyond the property is ''Crown land'' and the Salmontail Lake. Other features include two ponds and a small creek. Lots of sugar maples too for tapping. Your closest neighbour is the well known ''Bulwark Craft Cider'' Company which is located down by the roadside.

This farm enjoys a nice stretch of road frontage, ideal for a road-side stand or market, if desired. So, here's a unique opportunity with lots of infrastructure in place, perfect for farming or your business venture. The Village of New Ross is close by and all essential services are within 30 minutes.
