Acadian Highlands Farm is a 315+- acre land parcel located in northern Aroostook County. The parcel is located in an area of the state of Maine known as the St. John Valley. From the height of the sloped farm fields you can see across the St. John River into Canada, which is just five miles from the property. The cleared farm fields have been planted with traditional Maine crops like potatoes, oats and beets. There is a farmer currently leasing the fields, and that relationship could be continued. This large contiguous parcel has frontage on U.S. Route 1, making it readily accessible and electric power readily available.
The sloping farm fields and mixed growth forest lands may be an ideal location for a permacultural designed home site and farm. The sloped land, 360 degree views, rich farm soils, and abundant rainfall provide a solid basis upon which to design and build your new Permaculture farm home. There is power at the street, or you could opt for an off-grid, and sustainable home and utilize the southern views for a solar powered and heated home. The size of the parcel and quality of the land provide an opportunity to build a sustainable home and farm.
Acadian Highlands Farm has nearly 1700 feet of the spring fed headwaters of Hammond Brook running through it. Early summer is the time to explore its clear riffles and beaver ponds for brook trout. The cool and shadowy forest areas surrounding the open farm fields are home to deer, moose, grouse and more. Tracts of land like this are increasingly difficult to find. Don’t wait too long and miss out on the opportunity to own Acadian Highlands Farm. Call today!
