Opportunities abound on this quintessential working hillside farm in the quaint Shire Town of Chelsea. Nestled in the hills of Central Vermont, where rich fields, abundant woodlands and plentiful water have provided the perfect environment for successful agrarian ventures since Chelsea’s founding in 1781, this 81-acre property is currently home to Sweet Doe Dairy and consists of a charming, two-acre homestead, 29 acres of lush pasture and hayfields, and 50 acres of well-managed woodlands. The sunny, renovated 1790 farmhouse features 3 br's, 2.5 baths, a wonderfully efficient eat-in kitchen, large living/dining room with woodstove, den, and family room. All systems are in excellent working order. Expansive mountain views and established perennials grace the home and property. The present owners have, over the last 11 years, rejuvenated the land, upgraded the existing structures, and added the infrastructure needed to successfully launch New England’s first and only premium farmstead goat milk gelato. The historic bank barn has undergone extensive renovations, and the two-story on-site creamery is fully licensed and equipped for ongoing production. This exceptionally rare turn-key offering is poised for new owners to continue a well-loved goat dairy and gelato business or expand or adapt to other agricultural interests, as desired – all while enjoying the very best Vermont country living has to offer. Ultra-high-speed fiber optic internet service also available here!
