Farm for Sale in Acme, WA

My mother is selling her property in Acme, WA on the Nooksack River (about a 40 minute drive from Bellingham.) This was my Great-grandfather's homestead. It would make an amazing permaculture farm for the right people, but unfortunately it isn't us at this time. My grandfather ran cattle on the land his whole life (free range, organic, etc). In recent years she has let one of the neighbor farmers hay the fields which he used for his cattle (my understanding is that he supplies beef to the local organic co-op market). I would love to see a Permie take on this land!

Here is the listing for anyone interested. Please feel free to ask me any questions you might have!

And here is an aerial view of the property:

Its a beautiful area. The South Fork Nooksack is a priority for salmon recovery due to the distinct population of spring chinook, and the low summer flows... the Whatcom Land Trust could be a partner that could bring cash into a mixed farmland preservation/conservation acquisition that could reduce the entry cost to the land.
Here's some more info on that front... https://salishsearestoration.org/wiki/South_Fork_Nooksack_Floodplain.

Thanks Paul,

It was the Whatcom Land Trust that did the creek restoration on the property a few years back: http://www.n-sea.org/watersheds/landingstrip-creek

They are now doing work on the property just south of ours.

This is absolutely beautiful. I wish I had the funds. Thank you for sharing!
 
This guy is skipping without a rope. At least, that's what this tiny ad said:
