Pittsboro, IN 46178
Asking Price: $180,000
We plan to list our home and land officially in Spring 2019, but we wanted to offer it up to current or would-be farmers early at a price that we believe is somewhat below market value.
3 bed/2 bath 1,880 sq. ft. ranch-style house on 5 acres. House includes new 6.2 kW photovoltaic solar array (enough to cover our use and send significant energy back to the grid, installed 2017), new furnace and ductwork (high efficiency, 2016), new siding (fiber cement, 2016), newer well (2015), wood burning stove, hardwood and ceramic flooring, double-pane windows (some new), r-19 insulation in walls, small root cellar, large front porch, and a two-car garage.
Land includes 5 mostly-flat acres of rich soil that has been free from the use of agricultural chemicals, mature trees, 2 barns (approx. 600 sq. ft. and 300 sq. ft.), 4 hydrants dispersed around property, 480ft gravel drive, young fruit trees, 2 fenced paddocks (approx. 1 acre each – some fencing needs repaired), 12 x 20 unheated greenhouse, and a walk-in cooler (in larger barn).
We have used this land for raising market vegetables and decided in 2018 to focus on other things. The land is well suited for a mixed vegetable/livestock farm. It is also a great location for marketing: 30 miles to Indianapolis, 8 miles to Danville and Brownsburg, and 15 miles to the Avon market.
The main challenges of this particular land have been the high water table, which has meant ponding in a few spots around the farm during heavy rain events, and a persistent battle against Canada thistle.
