Lots of wild edibles, berries, wild fruit trees, etc. wet-weather pond, not in floodplain, some structures on site - you could tear them down, you could fix them up. Only willing to sell or lease to people who care for animals and won't go in and shoot everything/raze the property. Local wildlife includes raccoons, foxes, bobcats, many types of birds including water birds. Plus a colony of feral/semi-feral cats that keep all rats/mice away. (Which reduces snake population) Predators leave our chickens/goats/etc alone as we have guardian dogs on property. Fully fenced. New well being dug now. Power in place. Septic system in place. Structures include a shell house that is sound but ugly - has no insulation or interior finishing. Last time I was there I found a leak in the roof where a shingle separated from the septic vent. Another home-built house with no plans or conventional anything - may need to be torn down, up to you. Also a barn, chicken coop, other small structures.
If you want to lease, I'd be willing to trade part of the $ for help fixing it up as well as caring for/protecting the wild animals & feral cats. (And willing to let you have first crack at purchase if you fix it up and love it and want to buy it)
If you want to purchase, I'd be willing to consider a lower price in exchange for a solemn promise plus character references along the same lines. (caring for/protecting wild animals/ferals)
In either case, also willing to consider leaving some of the goats along with their guardian dogs. A few of the goats are in milk, a few might be pregnant, some are $$ valuable but I would want assurances that you wouldn't just immediately sell them - and wouldn't ever sell the less $valuable ones for meat.
See - I've got all these annoying conditions, and I realize that setting all these limits reduces the chance that anyone would want to buy or lease the property... but I'm willing to take that chance. It's really important to me that this land and these animals pass from my hands to someone else who is willing to care for them in a way I haven't been able to due to health issues. I had big dreams, but just can't keep up. My loss is your gain.

Is your property still available? My family and I are currently very stuck in the renters rat race and want out, we are looking for a place where we have room to grow, learn and just enjoy life. We don't have a lot to offer financially, however my husband is a teacher and we were maintenance workers at the last apartment we lived at (aka Handy around fixing things up). We would love the opportunity to come look at your property and see if we could help each other out.

Thanks
The Jones
