Parties interested in farming may submit bids to lease sections, or the entirety, of the Barnstable County Farm on Route 6A in Barnstable Village. The County has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for those wishing to lease areas that include pasture, vegetable/fruit production sections, and greenhouses.
Information about the farm and lease process is available at the County website:
- Go to: www.barnstablecounty.org.
- Click on “Purchasing,” then “Bids & Proposals,” and scroll down to “Lease of County Farm.”
- Parties will need to register with the website to proceed to the RFP, maps, and other information.
The deadline for proposals is September 6, 2018 at 11AM, and farm parcels will be available in February 2019. A lease agreement will be executed between the successful applicant and the County Commissioners after approval by the Assembly of Delegates.
