 Rutherford County, NC North Carolina Dream Farm  - Notes from the family:  A beautiful 111 acre farm that is an assortment of fenced pastures, developed fields and wooded areas. A very interesting topography of rolling hills, walking and riding paths, multiple small creeks, one large creek, and a stocked pond brimming with fish. The farm house is an original 1860s cabin creatively and tastefully expanded in 1982 with a two story addition to over 3,600 sq. ft. of living area. The new addition also has a full basement for an additional 1,537 sq. ft. of interior space. This farm was our parents’ dream realized for over 25 years. Originally from New Jersey, our parents moved here in the 1970s to enjoy a wonderful new chapter of life. Our dad was a residential contractor and he put his heart and soul into this property rejuvenating it to a thriving farm and family heritage. The primary farm income was through beef cattle but we had an assortment of other animals: horses, ponies, a mule, pigs, goats, chickens, twirling pigeons and pet dogs and cats. The main crops were hay and corn. Near the house is an organic garden site where our dad grew an extremely diverse garden. Honey was a major product for several years. We had over 60 hive colonies at the peak. The well house has a separate room for honey production with the accommodations to be washed down. The new addition was designed with previsions for solar energy heating. Heat collected during the day in a second floor room was transferred to a rock medium in a basement room and the heat was automatically cycled through the house at night time. The system has since been idled. There is now a conventional heating/air conditioning system in place and the upstairs room is now attic storage. There is an old hand dug bucket well that is no longer in use. The current well has a submersible electric pump in a well house.

 

There is an original 1860s farm house expanded in 1982 to over 3,600 sq. ft. of living area, a conventional two story barn, a storage pole barn, two workshops, various outbuildings, multiple small creeks, a large creek with property owned on both sides, and a stocked fish pond. Cattle yard along barn, pig parlor, chicken house, green house. A major property highlight is a several acre hill top area where the timber could be cleared for an ideal house site with a 360 degree country view. A mixture of fenced pasture and wooded areas. A large collection of farm equipment, paddle boats and numerous antiques are available.
