Organic Farm for Rent

Huckleberry Farm

Date posted to GoodWork: Nov 4, 2004

Start date: Jan 1, 2005

Location: Alliston ON, Canada

We are looking for a couple/family/group to rent our

organic farm and farmhouse north of Toronto. Ideal for

trying out country living and organic farming prior to

buying your own land. The renter would care for and

harvest the existing crops asparagus, raspberries,

strawberries and apples. We currently sell crops at the

gate in a small shack, using the honour system. The renter

would keep all earnings and have access to the farming

equipment (tractor, rototiller, handtools, etc.).


The house is a charming old brick farm house (just over

100 yrs) in good condition. There are four bedrooms, a

large country kitchen, two bathrooms, and a woodstove.

There is an office with phone lines in the detached garage.

Large wrap around veranda. Balcony off of main bedroom.

Wood floors in many of the rooms. Paved driveway lined

with huge spruce trees.

Other Buildings:

There is also a large barn and a carriage house. There is

a woodshop in the barn that is also for rent (see below).


The property is 13.5 acres, with less than 2 acres cultivated.

There are at least another 5 acres that could be used to grow

crops of the renters choice. There is a large vegetable

garden and several flower gardens. Hundreds of tulips

and daffodils in the spring. Lots of trees.


Approximately one hour north of Toronto, just east of

Alliston. There are numerous communities within 5 or

10 minutes, so there is plenty to do nearby.

Rent for farm/farmhouse:

$1,400/month plus heat. Available January 1. One year

lease. 705-435-3182.

Other opportunities on the property:

There is also a 900 square foot woodworking shop for rent

in the barn. The shop has been used as a full-time business.

This is currently available should you wish to rent the farm

and the shop. Rent for the shop is an additional $750/month.

(Less if you are renting both the farm and the shop).
