Dear Farmland Seekers and Service Providers,

The Vermont Land Trust (VLT) is working with Walter and Diane Berthiaume to provide a farmer the opportunity to acquire this 326-acre farm. This farm is highly visible with significant frontage on Route 104.
VLT is seeking a buyer who will own and operate a commercial farm business and contribute to the agricultural community.
The Berthiaume Farm is located north of Fairfax village. All the land is certified organic and the farm is currently used as an organic dairy. The Route 104 frontage provides a unique opportunity to directly market farm products. The farm is located within a half-hour of Burlington, 10 minutes of St. Albans, and is near Interstate 89.
The farmhouse has 2,100 feet of living space and four bedrooms. It has been well maintained with some recent updates. The dairy barn is has 80 tie stalls and is currently used for an organic dairy herd. The barn has both a double four parlor and milking pipeline systems. There is cement barnyard.
The farm has 120 acres of productive hay and pasture land. Ninety-six acres are prime and statewide-rated agricultural soils. The soils include very productive Westbury, Cabot, and Peru fine sandy loam soils.
Cattle and Equipment
The current owners have a full line of equipment. The current herd of organic dairy cows totals 47 and includes 38 cows and 9 young stock. Buyers interested in cattle and equipment will negotiate directly with the current owners regarding these items.
We are hosting two open houses at the farm to allow potential buyers to see the property. They will be Saturday, October 4 and Thursday October 9. Each open house will be from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.
We strongly recommend attendance at an open house, since there is limited availability to see the farm outside of these dates. Interested parties are asked to respond if planning to attend. Interested farmers will need to submit a farm proposal by November 21st.
The purchase price is $350,000. An appraisal update is being conducted. If the appraised value is less than $350,000 the price will be reduced to that value.
