Best of both worlds; Self sufficient farmette in rural community yet in striking distance from contract work.

Charming restored 1917 craftsman farmhouse on 12 acres, split between tilled fields and woodlot. 10 minutes from closest 4 lane highway, adjoining Pocomoke State Forest and a two minutes from EA Vaughn Wildlife Management Area.

Onsite well and septic, wood stove, above ground 15×30 pool (11,000 gallons of water) and alternative power sources including:

15kw propane generator

1.5kw wind power

8kw solar power

Numerous raised beds (over 300 sq ft) using fortified soil, composting areas, and approximately 4 acres previously tilled by neighboring farmer, currently in the fallow cycle devoted to hay. Roughly 6 acres of woods.

Water catchment to numerous 300 gallon tanks.

Rural eastern shore Maryland is an area listed in Strategic Relocation as one of the two best area in the state. This area is sparsely populated containing mostly farms and woodlots.

Close enough to allow commuting to work near the city (2-4 hours) yet remote enough to allow privacy and a rural lifestyle.
