Located in Newtown, NS, this turn-key dairy farm boasts 225 kilograms of saleable milk quota, modern facilities, and a full-line of machinery. Featuring automated ventilation and deep bedded stalls this operation focuses on cow comfort, consistently producing over 42L/Cow/Day.

This farm is lucky to be in an area where there is little competition for land!  The majority of its leased acreage has been farmed for decades by the present owner, paying well below industry standards or on trade.  These arrangements can be transferred.  With 270 owned cultivated acres and an additional 75+ acres that could be cleared, you can buy this farm for the right price now and grow over time.
With all the animals under one roof, a flush manure system and a self-propelled mixer you can spend less time doing chores and more time managing the farm. The barn was designed with expansion in mind, with the option to easily covert stalls for more cows. The purchase includes two houses, each located on the farm. Labor is a challenge most everywhere but this farm has all the perks to attract and keep the right people. The farm currently has two excellent long-term herdspersons, who are interested in remaining on the farm.

The farm is just a short 40 minute drive from New Glasgow and Antigonish, both are vibrant rural towns with all the modern amenities.  The smaller town of Sherbrooke is only 25 minutes away and has restaurants, a medical centre, a grocery store and a bank.
