This quintessential New England farm has over a 200 year history as a working farm. In 2017 the farm was sold to the Monadnock Agricultural Center LLC, whose intention was to make farmland available to people who wanted to pursue different aspects of farming. Some of the land is currently under management, leaving you free to enjoy the countryside and a lovely southwestern NH. 
The lush hayfields and sugar bush and sugar house are productive, operating under long term leases, producing immediate income for the next owner and leaving you free to enjoy the countryside and explore lovely southwestern NH. 
Both the Farmhouse and Schoolhouse are in good condition, attractive and inviting and also offer potential for income from rentals, with town approval. 6+ Tillable acres for crops.
We highly recommend that you contact the local zoning, planning and/or building department to confirm your intended use of any property as part of your due diligence prior to purchase.  Don’t assume that because you see a property for sale or neighboring properties being used a certain way that you can do the same.  Zoning regulations can change, some properties may “grandfathered” or operate under a variance or special exception that may not be transferable to you so you should always verify for yourself that you can use, expand or modify a property in the manner you intend.
