Welcome to your dream homestead, where year-round natural beauty and self-sufficiency unite. This stunning property features a pristine Spring Creek, lush pastures, established gardens, a high-tunnel greenhouse, a variety of fruit trees and berries, a versatile shop, a well-equipped barn with stalls, and a charming office building/she-shed. All of this is just one mile from the serene North Fork of the White River. The fertile land is ideal for growing a diverse range of produce, with 210 days of sunshine and 45 inches of annual rainfall.
