Barns for Sale All Across NC, and Here’s Why


North Carolina is historically a very rural state. From its foundation as a colony by the British, NC has raised barn after barn to house anything from livestock to grain all across the state. It seems that every town has at least one barn that’s stood the test of time and has been a fortress for many cows and many grain-bundles throughout the ages. But the truth is, North Carolina is developing, and this is leaving many barns for sale in NC. Companies like Apple and PayPal are moving into the state, and they need a lot of property to house their energy sources, super-computers, and factories, and the best place to accomplish this is on farmland.


Since these companies have so much money, they’re giving offers farmers can’t refuse, which means the land must be cleared to accommodate the new rise in infrastructure and development, and many of the remaining barns are up for sale.


Charles Ingle, a Lincolnton, North Carolina native, whose family goes back generations in his town, knew that he needed a barn to house his many horses in 1986, and he turned to the best option he knew: finding a barn for sale in NC. He knew that he could build and raise a barn with the help of his neighbors and family, but that the most cost-effective way to procure a barn for his growing horse-pals was to search NC for barns for sale. He was not disappointed when he found a perfect barn for sale in NC from an old farmer friend of his, who was selling his barn to make some extra cash out of the sale of his farm to a factory that had decided to settle in Lincolnton.


Charles found this barn for sale in NC to be exactly what he needed.  Sure, it needed some paint and a few boards replaced, but he truly wouldn’t have found a better way to meet his horse’s needs.  He was even able to use the barn as storage for his stuff-hoarding habit.  This is proof that while many farms are being sold to major corporations in the rural state, the barns needn’t go to waste.  There are many non-traditional uses for barns, and there is always someone in need of the barns farmers no longer have any use for.
