Potential Mini-Farm in Rhinebeck, NY, $384K

1800s farmhouse

This 1800s farmhouse in rural Rhinebeck, NY comes with a barn, fruit trees, and garden beds to help start your own personal farmstead.

Three acres is just about the right size for someone looking to attempt some self-sustainability but isn’t ready to commit to sweeping swathes of land requiring near-constant tending. That’s what makes this property so ideal: Not only is the land just big enough to grow bountiful gardens, the barn provides a place to house small livestock, like goats or chickens. In the fall, harvest fruit and make preserves for the winter, and, when spring comes, start all over again.
