Property Description

This farm has a lot of potential! Vacation rentals on a working farm with livestock. Briar Rose is a 98 +/- Acre old mountain farm located in the Spring Creek (Township 38) section of Madison County off of Highway 63, two miles south of Trust, the intersection of Highway 63 and scenic Highway 209. It is 17 miles south of the town of Hot Springs at 3,000 feet. The land is not surveyed and it at the entrance to a cove running north/south. A creek and a private road run through it. There is approximately 4 acres of bottom land and 6 acres of tractor land is in hay. Also on the property are a pond and a one acre fenced garden and smaller garden. This land would function well as a family compound with the farm house and, farm cabin, knob cabin and numerous other building sites. It is also desirable as a market garden and nursery facility with 7 acres of land that could be certified as organic for growing. It also could be continued to be operated as we do, as a get away for couples and for families that wish to share a rural/farm experience. http://www.briarrosefarm.com/Forsale.html, PIN #: 8754982348
