Description

We are very committed to do what we mentioned above. We are willing to learn to do things the best way. We know that our property has so much potential for any opportunities that may be presented to us. We are driven to become a part of our local community and eventually be able to support our local economy. Either by providing jobs, food or other sustainable benefits.
We know that there is a market for what we want to invest our time and energy into, and we have the chutzpah and the intelligence to be successful. We are willing to take reasonable risks.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

To be a self sustaining farm. To have a small fruit and nut orchard. To be raising milk goats, chickens, ducks, rabbits. To be growing vegetables and herbs. To sell our bounty at local farmers markets. Have the opportunity to grow heirloom seeds. To have the opportunity to provide plants or products that the local community will need/love. Sell specialty items to local restaurants. To be solar efficient and water use efficient.
We want to do all of this without disrupting the current ecosystem and saving wildlife habitat as much as possible.
We currently share a well with neighbors and need to drill another well on our property. We have already located where we should drill.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

To be a successful, knowledgeable farmer. Perhaps grow hemp, when it becomes lawful, and provide the hemp market. We hope to be a community involved entity that gives back to the community we live in. Once plant beds and animal structures are permanent we would like to reforest part of the property. We want to be organic certified.
Become involved in cultivating Native American plants and herbs.( Indigenous plants, trees, flowers).
We will also have honeybees.
