Property Description

In 1993 Drew and Heather Shoemaker became the new owners of the Kinderfarm complex. The original farmhouse serves as the school and also has a spacious apartment upstairs for family, staff members or rented. This building is in great shape and has a postcard americana feel. The owners of Kinderfarm live in the newly constructed home just up the hill. This sprawling ranch has a massive deck and many windows to overlook the pond. There are barns and garages to house the plethora of animals that reside on the farm. Please take a look at the first 6-7 minute of the television show. Heather has been the driving force of Kinderfarm for quite some time, she now runs the property with her husband Jeff. As you tour the grounds you will notice farm ground to the east, the education area centered on the property and the personal home to the north. Don't miss the Maze! The pond serves as home to ducks, geese and fish, You will want to bring a fishing pole. This property has been a great lifestyle for the owner for 28 years. Close to town but country views. I do want to remind the reader that Kinderfarm is a pre-school, not a daycare. There are very specific rules that apply to each, but not necessarily to both, please do familiarize yourself with the rules. The owners have made a good living on the farm as well. The owners can share more details with any qualified buyer. There is room for growth and expansion and the property could support another business as well. There are so many happy kids and ecstatic parents, I will share just one testimonial " I went to kinderfarm! It's a very prestigious and well respected institution. It's like the Ivy League of pre-schools." There are many other options available to a Buyer on this property. The current owners would love to pass on the business to a new energetic business owner but would never want to get in the way your dreams
