Q: When and how did you find it?
A: We bought the property through a private sale. We signed a purchase agreement the day after viewing it in February.
Q: How many acres is it?
A: Twenty. Its a lovely mix of tillable land, wetlands (we have a pond and a creek!), and woods.
Q: Are you going to farm?
A: While we do have about seven acres of tillable land, we do not plan to farm it or rent it to a neighboring farmer. We would like to see that land return to prairie to attract wildlife.
Q: Are you going to get chickens?
A: I would like to, yes. We are excited to learn the ins and outs of the farm before we take on the responsibility of animals.
Q: Is there a house? Is it habitable? When are you moving?
A: Yes, there is a house. It technically is habitable, but nothing we wish to live in under its current condition. We would eventually like to salvage all that we can from the current home, then take it down and build our forever home.
Q: Did you sell your current house?
A: No. We will continue to live in town until we are ready to build a home at the farm.
