I am looking for a full time farm manager to help start a farm, not only as an employee, but also as a partner, not only get paid, but also share profits. I hope farm managers can work wholeheartedly, who have the ability and experience, can help me make plan, manage employees, open up the market.
so we can work together to create a co-owned farm business.
I bought the farm last year, it is 60 acres, approximately 50 acres in irrigated pasture and hay(lease to a dairy company, One-year lease, so we can use 6 acres for now, more for the future ). This farm is certified organic since 2003 by Global Organic Alliance.
At present, the farm is still preparing. Once there is a suitable partner and plan, the farm project can be started.
I have not planned in detail, for short term goals, I want to plant some leafy greens and keep some poultry, maybe a few specialty crops. For long term goals, I want to establish a profitable CSA/working relationship with local chefs, maybe offer permaculture courses. 6 acres is only a temporary plan, it can be expanded next year if things go well, the goal is whole 60 acres, or maybe more in the future.
I used to be a criminal defense lawyer in Beijing, it is a tough job, especially in China. I want to do some better work, and I am concerned about food safety and health, so I decided to set up an organic farm one day. After that, I learned about Sir Albert Howard’s indore method, Masanobu Fukuoka’s natural farming, and Bill Mollison’s permaculture.
I think, if organic agriculture movements always depends on selfless dedication, It will not really succeed, it need to be successful in business. So I want to set up a profitable permaculture farm, It can be used as a demonstration site for education and tourism.
So, If you are entrepreneurial thinkers, business minded and driven. and want to start a farm, tell me about your plan. I think we have a good chance of cooperation
P.S. I think the manager is best to live on the land, but for now, there is only one small house on the farm for my family. So I think, as a temporary solution, the manager needs to rent in the neighborhood for a while, until the farm house is set up.
