Willow Creek also features a 4-bedroom / 3-bathroom renovated farmhouse which has a drive-in basement used to serve as the office and breakroom, a 1,440 square foot pole barn used to store the equipment and feed & 2 greenhouses for sorting and hatching. Some of the sorting and hatching equipment still remains on property, as well as solar powered automatic feeders, observation docks around the ponds, assorted tools, lighting, plumbing, trucks, trailer and other equipment.
