Absolutely Unique Farm in Starks ME Stunning historic farm settled in 1776 - 107 acres; ½ in old-growth woodlot never commercially harvested, ½ in open fields, all in continuous organic management for the past 27 years. With only two families in ownership in its history, this heritage farm is a gem. Completely updated Federal style farmhouse with 3800 square feet of comfortable living space, 40' x 100' post and beam barn, guest cottage and outbuildings, a 30' x 60' greenhouse, plus 1800 feet of waterfront on the pristine Sandy River. The farm's rich, deep (rock free!) sandy loam and clay-based soils are the best growing land in Maine. The farming emphasis for the last quarter century has been on biological soils management to produce nutrient dense vegetables, grains, prime hay and pasturage. The home, set in the middle of the farm's open land and surrounded by mature shade trees, flowering shrubs, gardens, and an heirloom apple orchard, offers complete privacy as well as unobstructed views of the fields and woods in the distance. Ideal for working organic production, equestrian facility or simply an elegant, gentleman's farm. A commercial facility on a separate acre is available should a new owner be interested in local foods/farm-to-table business opportunities. It includes:  over-sized commercial kitchen with wood-fired brick oven;  8' x 24' walk-in refrigerated storage accessible from loading dock and from the kitchen;  retail/café space;  root cellar storage for up to 40 tons of local farm products;  elegant 25' x 40' dining room opening onto huge country porch;  fully handicap accessible.
