Historic Family Farm for Sale, Cortland County, NY

Unique opportunity to purchase a historic 5 BR farmhouse on 75 acres of fields, pastures and woods in the beautiful rural farming community of Freetown, NY. The farm has remained in the same family for 140 years. Land offers 360 degrees of spectacular rural views and is a short walk away from Hoxie Gorge State Forest and within driving distance of many  other State Parks. Neighborhood consists of active small farms, including Northland Sheep Dairy, a grass-fed artisanal cheese operation, and many Amish owned farms. The house, originally built in 1880, features 1,728 SQ. FT of living space and includes two full bathrooms, a fireplace and woodstove. Furnace, well, siding, roof, windows and foundation have been replaced or updated in recent years.  The land is currently not under a natural gas lease and the family hopes to sell to ecologically minded stewards who will continue to protect and care for the land by using organic or sustainable farming or gardening practices, as has been done for 140 years. Asking price is $160,000. Wonderful opportunity to purchase a reasonably priced farm just 30 miles from Ithaca markets and the Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming.
