Positioned in the picturesque landscape of Sassafras lies an exceptional property offering a blend of agricultural prowess and poultry business success. Spanning approximately 248 acres, this expansive land parcel presents a golden opportunity for seasoned farmers and savvy investors alike.

At the heart of this property’s allure is a thriving poultry business, boasting long-term contracts secured for two large, tunnel-operated ventilated sheds spanning 150m x 18m.
