    This is probably old news and was commented about in early 2015, but the Ithaca news reported on the 3/15 sale of Kingdom Farm in S Lansing NY. This is the property that was directly across the road from the old Gilead site, which had sold a number of years ago. But about 500 acres still was operated by the JWs as Kingdom Farm. We drove by the site in the summer of 2014 and observed some barns and routine work of mowing grass, etc.

    $2.8 million, or in the current situation one or two settlements.

    Sold for $2.8 mil.

    I remember when they drew up plans to develop that site similar to Patterson. Since it was kinda midway between the downstate NY properties and the Canada branch, GB1.0 reasoned that it would be a good place to expand.

    According to GB2.0, the way to expand is to $ell branch facilities and kick bethelites out to the congregations... and take the money away from the congregations, too.

    There was a huge investment in large farm machinery/vehicles at Kingdom Farm. I wonder where all the equipment has gone. Auctioned off? That must have brought in a pretty penny as well.

    Equipment probably sold off to pay for a lawsuit or something.

    According to them that is only equal to building 2.8 kingdom halls. Not such a great score when you look at it that way.

    $5,300 per acre for 528 acres? That sounds cheap.

    If you need the money then somtimes you have to sell cheap

    Actually according to the new article, the 5300 per acre was a high price for farmland in that area.

    Perhaps that price included a few bags of Miracle Wheat. 😀
