If you want to get back to nature, dig in the dirt and plow the fields, a five-acre farm in Calverton can be yours for under $1 million.
Built in 1955, the property's farmhouse has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It is listed for $950,000. There is a detached three-car garage with a large walk-in-cold storage box, which can be used for retail sales. A 6,000-gallon above ground oil tank can be used to heat the property's greenhouse, and a large, powered well and pump house irrigate the fields.
“The property has been farmed for decades, yielding delicious fruits, vegetables and even mums,” says Russell Ficken of Little Bay Realty.
Though there’s an abundance of farmland on the North Fork, most are much larger parcels, from 50 to 150 acres, notes Ficken. “Rarely does a five- to 10-acre farm come on the market.”
