I am a looking for land to buy. I have several ideas on what I want

Option 1: 10-50 acres with a water source. A well or a stream, maybe a river. No house or abandoned house preferred. Mostly flat, rolling is good too.

Option 2: a farm or homestead that is already built up and the owners want to retire and are looking for someone to take over. A iron clad contract will be drawn up with a lawyer stating that the previous owners have free lodging on a small house on the property as long as they live.  

Option 3: A small abandoned or dead town in a rural area.

Option 4: A school building that is no longer in use in a rural area. Preferably a brick building.

All options:
- Eastern to Northern half of the United States.
- $1-5,000 an Acre.
- Not to close to a major city.
- Not to close to a major Interstate.

Disclaimer: I am not a developer and I have no intention of subdividing or splitting up the land in any way.

Hi G Bowes, we are currently seeking new leadership & land transition at a 501c3 nonprofit farm, which includes the sale of 11.35 acres of land in NY State, including a 1-acre multi-story “food forest” that is one-of-a-kind in our region. The food forest currently features over 160 varieties of perennial, cold-hardy crops, including over 350 fruit and nut trees; over 480 berry-producing shrubs; ⅓ of an acre of culinary and medicinal herbs; and over 4,600 square feet of bed space for annual vegetables. We have been operating a 501c3 nonprofit on the land for 10 years, and we are looking for a new group to buy the land and take over management of the nonprofit.

We are open to creative models that ensure continuation of the non-profit’s operations, whether the land transfers to new private ownership, the non-profit itself purchases the land, another non-profit entity purchases the land, a land trust purchases the land, an agrarian commons is created, etc. You can see more info at the thread above, and also here is our land listing: https://nyfarmlandfinder.org/find-a-farm/property/unadilla-community-farm
