About Kevin Channell

Kevin is our specialist focusing on small farms, homesteads, farmland, timberland, maple sugarbush, and similar rural residential and commercial real estate projects.  His extensive background in the industry and his network within the farm and forest community keep him poised to serve you well as you plan to buy or sell your rural property.  No matter the scale, farming activities, maple sugaring operations, and woodlots are part of the Vermont experience.  Kevin can help you find a place to call home that also suits your plans for working your land or developing a cottage enterprise.  If it is time to wind down, he can help find a buyer to continue building on your success and carry on what you have worked so hard to build.  Vermont is an ideal place to find the right piece of land and make it a productive part of your life, then pass on the tradition to the next generation. 

Kevin and his family have been in Central Vermont since 2005.  He and his wife have designed and built two homes and renovated several fixer-uppers over the years.  So he is well-versed in developing a bare piece of land or reconfiguring existing improvements for residential or commercial use.  He has been actively operating commercial farming enterprises-growing produce, raising livestock, and direct marketing to retail and wholesale accounts in the Upper Valley for the past two decades. 

Kevin’s MBA graduate studies in farm business management and economics round out his experience and keep him grounded as he serves your needs in the real estate market.  He has also been a loan officer for Yankee Farm Credit where he closed real estate transactions, ordered and reviewed appraisals, evaluated deeds and title opinions, processed loan requests, and provided underwriting services and tax analysis.  He can be a good resource for you as you consider financing options and take various steps in the process of real estate transactions.  Kevin also has experience working as a farm business planner within Vermont’s Farm & Forest Viability network focusing on farm acquisitions, successions, and transfer planning. He continues to provide a range of business planning services along with the tax preparation service for farms and small businesses.  Kevin will be a resource for you to make an informed real estate transaction.

Kevin and his family now own and operate Vermont Alpine Farm in Reading, VT where they raise beef cattle and greenhouse crops.  He is committed to making a positive impact on the future of your farm, your small business, and your family.  Give him a call today at 802-249-7384 or email him at kevin@johnbassette.com.
