31 Acre Laying Operation *LINKED! *

Willowbrook Farm is going on the market due to my age and lack of family to help. If you would like to see a farm bio, willowbrookfarmelsie on facebook. There are two Quonset huts on this farm. One by the
road, used as a farm shop is 40x50 and has a double barrel wood stove for heat. It is foam
insulated. The second one is in line with the other buildings. It is set up for expansion and has
plumbing in the floor to build a second processing facility. It is 30x40. There is electrical lines
run to the pole barn and is ready to be wired in. Both buildings have hydrants and the 30x40
has a food grade hydrant in it. The pole barn has a hydrant also and is currently being used as
feed storage. It is divided with a large animal system set up for horses. It is 24x32 and was
built in 1999. There are three other hydrants along the water lines that are outdoors and ready
to utilize for water tanks or vegetable irrigation. There is a USDA certified back flow
preventer on the water lines to the outbuildings. There is a 30x72 hoop house that needs to be
reset due to wind damage. There is another hoop house currently being built in a fenced area
for poultry. The fenced area is directly behind the house and is about 1/3 of an acre with no
climb fence. There is a run-in shed with a frost free richey drinker for large animals, currently
being used by a horse. It is 12x24. There is 4.5 acres fenced for large animals. There is a
12x12 garden shed on cement behind the house, which is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath boca
modular, one bath in master bedroom, on a modular 8’ daylight basement. It has hardwood
flooring and an oak stairway to the basement; Lots of windows. It is hooked to a propane tank
but there is a wood stove in the basement and a ceiling fan in the dining room to draw the heat
upstairs. It has a boiler system for hot water and heat (if you prefer propane). The boiler is a
hot water convection heat system and can be hooked to an outdoor wood boiler. There is a
new water conditioner and a reverse osmosis system under the kitchen sink. The basement is
drywalled. The septic system is a mound system but is gravity fed. There is a sump crock in
the basement that can supply ground water for all the animals, (if the power goes out for a
couple of days). There is still a lot of clean-up to do here, trees, grass, etc., but the egg
business is keeping me pretty busy. I am willing to mentor the new owners into a smooth
transition. The chickens are kept in semi trailers and it helps keep predators off and provides
shade. The business is also for sale and can be part of the package.
