Not my place, I just follow this auction house and thought the Permie-signal should be boosted on this property.

Former organic farm. Off grid with solar and propane, well and septic, huge greenhouse and established fruit trees, creek and pond.

Bidding starts at $50,000 on 6/18 and closes 7/17. Cash only.

I came across this article about the history of this property and the man who developed it. He died suddenly a few years back, and it looks like his business partner wasn't able to continue on her own. It would be beautiful to see another generation of better-than-organic farmers take up the torch:

Very promising property. Only problem is that the bottom 100ft (1.5 acres) are on a 99 year lease registered per the bid package. The greenhouse seems to cut right through the lease section.

I asked the auctioneer on the details of the lease, but he has not been able to provide any further info.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://stoves2.com
