Greer Farm, a local legend amongst North Texas foodies, is on the market, now at an even lower price. We posted on the property last October, when it was listed at $3.5 million. The picture-book property at 1444 County Road 1125, Daingerfield, is 150 miles from Dallas off Highway 49 in northeast Texas. Current owners chef Eva Greer and her husband, Sid, have lived at and operated the farm since the late 1990s. Along with growing high-quality produce and grass-fed beef for sale, Greer Farm is an agri-tourism destination, drawing fans for cooking classes, culinary events, berry-picking, and overnight stays on the charming 252-acre property. It’s time for the Greers to retire to travel and spending time with their grandkids, so the price has been reduced.
The property includes a lovingly renovated 168-year-old plantation home, a separate industrial kitchen, four guest cabins on a pristine lake, living quarters for caretakers, and some of the prettiest and most fertile farm acreage to be found in Texas. Whether or not you’re in the market, the photos are must-see country lifestyle eye candy.
Greer Farm dates back to 1850. The farm’s original 168-year-old plantation home has been renovated to modernized glory, with restored original flooring and up-to-date appliances. Now encompassing 5,044 square feet, the four-bedroom home has three full and two half baths, a modern kitchen, formal dining room, a safe room and more. Four rentable guest cabins sit on an 11-acre fishing and recreational lake stocked with bass. There are deer, hogs, and ducks for hunting, and over four miles of trails for hiking or ATVs. A separate industrial kitchen for catering events on site or remotely is certified to produce manufactured food products for resale. A 3,600-square shop and storage building includes living quarters for guests or caretakers. Other structures on site include a large hay barn dating to 1845, numerous other historical buildings, a 14 x 24-foot greenhouse, and corrals and chutes for cattle and horses.
All of the 252-acre total acres are hog-proof fenced; 160 acres are dedicated to pine and oak timber production; 81 acres are pasture-fenced for livestock. The Greers raise vegetables and herbs, hay, fruit, flowers, red and white Maine-Anjou beef cattle, Dorper sheep, heritage pigs, sheep, and chickens. There are two deep wells from the Carrizo-Wilcox aquifer. Nine acres are irrigated for fruit, citrus, and berries. A two-acre mountain top site on the south end of the property affords a 40-mile view and would be ideal for building another home.
“The land is fertile and there’s plenty of water,” said Clayton Pilgrim, the listing agent who represents the property. “There are so many different ways new owners could use this property. They could continue the business the Greers now have. A chef could make it a destination restaurant. It could be a bed and breakfast, a wedding venue, a retreat house for a church, a rehabilitation facility, a summer camp, or a vineyard and winery.”
Greer Farm is now listed for $2.65 million, represented by Clayton Pilgrim of Century 21 Harvey Properties.
