Green Island Preserve
Wadena, MN

Kent Sheer is seeking a young farmer or forester with sustainable ideals and practices for the longterm. In the meantime he is offering unusual opportunities to especially clever growers, foresters, or artists.

 

Succession Possibilities:

  • Harvest Share of apples, aronia, and herbs to use testing ideas on value-added processing.

  • Farm Manager working toward purchase

  • Land Use—three acres remain undeveloped and can be available to be tilled and planted to a high value perennial, with a good business plan and experience.

  • Garden Community—a private pond area is ideal for a tiny house garden community of 3 to 4 residences with full access to the land and buildings.

  • Direct Transition/Sale with Life Estate is always possible.
