Shetler Farm Auction
Thursday, May 23, 2019 • 6:00 p.m.
Open House: Monday, May 13, 5-7 p.m. an opportunity!
The Shetler Farm consists of 93+ acres of Certified Organic land in an excellent country location between Dundee and Strasburg. There are a number of buildings here: Some new, modern ones that need nothing, and some pioneer-era structures that either could be renovated or eventually replaced. The large bank barn is in good shape and very servicable now.
There is a nice new shop across the driveway from the old farmhouse, a 24×26 milking parlor and 20×24 milkhouse, 30×50 pole building with perma columns (built in 2015), 40×126 Virginia-style loose housing pole building (built in 2010), and more. The entire farm is Certified Organic, so you could buy the entire property and start your own organic farming operation, or buy one of the parcels and start your own produce operation, raise sheep, beef cattle — the possibilities are almost endless here. You’ll also like the choice in parcel sizes, ranging from five acres to 29 acres — there is something here for everyone!
The old farmhouse is occupied now, very livable and has had some renovations including some new windows, some laminate flooring and more. The main floor consists of kitchen, living room, bedroom and half bath, while the upstairs has three additional bedrooms and a full bath. You could take the next steps and restore it to its original glory, or perhaps live in it while you make plans to build a new home. There are two additional older buildings adjacent to the house; an old springhouse and a building that perhaps was the original pioneer residence. If you have ever wanted to take on an old farm project, this might be the one.The setting is beautiful, with most of the parcels being well off the quiet country road.
The land, buildings, etc. here offer an excellent opportunity to live the country lifestyle you’ve always dreamed of. Parcels like this are very hard to come by in East Holmes,and as the Plain communities grow in adjacent areas, the Dundee-Strasburg area will no doubt become popular.
This is your chance to get ahead of that curve, and secure an excellent piece of ground for your family. The farm has a Vesta water system, Diesel air compressor, line shaft, and 3-panel (230 watt) battery pack/solar system, all of which stay.
Note: Mineral rights are not included, but there is free gas up to 350,000 Cu. Ft. to one dwelling. Private Well and septic.
