Property is located within minutes of downtown Unity, only 45 minutes to Bangor and 30 minutes to Waterville or Belfast. There is some shoreland zoning at the back of the property with 2,856 ft. on Bacon Brook. And pretty distant views. To ensure that this farm remains viable for future generations, the property will be protected with an agricultural conservation easement which will restrict future development. The easement will allow for the construction of new agricultural structures as well as a single family residence (the property does not have any existing agricultural or residential dwellings). This piece is well suited for someone looking to build an off-grid home as the best building site would likely be back off the road. Maine Farmland Trust is looking for a farmer who wants to start or expand their farm enterprise on 178 +/- acres of farmland in Unity. Located on Albion Road (Route 202-9) the property is comprised of 2 field areas (55+/- acres fronting the road and 5+/- acres in a back field) plus 118 acres in woods. The land most recently was leased by a farmer as hay ground and prior to that used by the USDA ARS program for grain trials. It would be a great property for a variety of farm enterprises – with good soils for row crops – 72 acres are in Farmland Soils of Statewide Importance: Thorndike-Winnecook Complex 3 – 8% slopes. Would also be a good property for diversified operations with some land in crops, some in hay, and some in pasture.
PLEASE NOTE: Property will be sold subject to a Agricultural Conservation Easement but allows for farm infrastructure and homestead area. Property is currently subject to a lease for season 2013 and 2014. Leaseholder also has a ROFR (Right of First Refusal) on the sale of the parcel.
