This country mixed business has been here for over 50 years.  The reason the owner is selling is due to relocation  to the honey farm on French Island.  There is more than meets the eye with this country business and lifestyle, and the best way to know for sure, is to come down and see for yourself!  Make a day of it and take a bus tour around the island.
