Hello all, There are 2 "high dollar" farms for sale in our area. Our county is a small, waterfront area, being hit hard by the "buy, subdivide, give it a cute name, sell lots" initiative. I have a huge preservationist instinct to try to buy one of these places. As just a home, beyond our budget. It would be about convincing a bank, or maybe a grant giving organization (both are somewhat historical places). OK: my most recent brainstorm: a women's (or either sex I guess, but since I'm female I could cater better) working farm spa/vacation spot. You know, a group of city women come for the week, stay in the barn apartment, do garden work, attend self-help classes, do yoga, learn how to knit, gather eggs, etc. Anybody know anybody else with experience along these lines, know any websites I could look at? As I feel it coming already: no pessimistic criticism accepted, I'll wait to receive that from the guy with comb-over hair at the bank! I'm not a "dreamy, romantic about farming" kind of girl, I'm just trying to think of creative ways to make a farm pay for itself. thanks and Happy New Year to all!
