A deal to buy Zion Farms, an equestrian guest estate in northwestern Floyd County, has apparently fallen through and two banks are marketing portions of the 310-acre property.

Citizens First Bank  took a deed in lieu of foreclosure on nearly 36 acres of the property including the main house, barn and other buildings that had been rented for corporate meetings, weddings and other celebrations. The asking price is $675,000.

On Tuesday, United Community Bank foreclosed on approximately 20 acres of the property that was a planned subdivision.

In November, Zion Farms president Rena Cooper-Webb said the property was being bought by the Animal Companion Rescue Foundation. Its founder, Dale Wintlend, said he wanted to create a place where people could ensure their pets are cared for after the owners die or become incapacitated.
