Beetlebung Farm sold Tuesday afternoon to an entity called the Farm Group nominee trust for the sum of $2.4 million, Dukes County Registry of Deeds data shows.
The deed was transferred at 1:52 pm, according to registry clerk Sarah Levesque.
The town of Chilmark had previously made attempts to buy the farm for municipal use, but could not strike a deal with the previous owners. The board of selectmen is now negotiating for the Carroll property behind town hall.
The 5.7-acre Beetlebung Farm was assessed for $948,200 in fiscal 2019, according to Chilmark assessor Pam Bunker. A house, a cottage, and a barn sit on the property, she said.
