The Foundation for a Sustainable Future is pleased to offer for sale a discrete and private portion of its 1,296 acre Vermont headquarters, SHO Farm. The Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit promoting land and biodiversity conservation, ecological innovation, and the evolution of consciousness. The Foundation is selling a portion of SHO Farm to raise funds for its rescue duck sanctuary and next wave of land-based work, including establishing a permanent wildlife preserve, researching agroecological-wild farming, and continuing its wild gastronomy project.
The Farmstead at SHO represents the Foundations first major project, an artfully-crafted, high-performance farmstead which includes buildings, renewable heat and electrical systems, and a 10 year old food system. The Farmstead includes 185 acres, the Farmhouse, Energy Barn, Studio Barn, and Caretaker's Residence, totaling 32,750 square feet of space, of which 25,000 square feet were recently ecologically-designed, renovated and built by Birdseye Building Co. A swimming pond, gardens, mature 8 acre permaculture-designed orchard comprised of diverse fruits, nuts, and perennial plantings, two streams, frontage along Brush Brook, total privacy, and unobstructed, protected views of Camel's Hump and the Green Mountain ridgeline complete the core offering. This offering is the core Farmstead with 45 acres plus 140 acres, for a total of 185 acres. The additional acreage features open fields and pastures adjacent to the entrance, a sugarbush, rich deer habitat, and a hidden brookside apple orchard.
Details and videos about both offerings can be found on the Earth Asset website.
