13 permaculture acres in lorane to share.


Description

We just connected through farm link with a farm to rent.  We took possesion this week and are busy cleaning up the place.  Now we are looking for partners to do permaculture farming and gardening.  We raise waterfowl for eggs and use them in regenerative farming systems. We also raise a lot of vegetables and such produce to sell at market with our eggs. Long term partners might take over the market gardening eventually.  We only need the closest few acres so also good potentiall for farm partners with sheep or cattle.  Probably 8 acres fencable grazing land.

We are looking for regenerative permaculture farming partners.  We’re kind of hippie, definitely doing a personal med grow, not so much red neck but busy, productive, effective small scale farming going on.  I’m educated, experienced and experimental within limits as a gardener. I know how to make an operation work and I’m happy to mentor or collaborate.

Also we are crazy enough to have been wwoofing for years while pasturing our livestock across the country.  We are extremely glad to be settling down here now even if it takes two day jobs to pay the rent and bills to start.  A roommate/farm partner would be a welcome opportunity to synergize operations.

We have a room to rent but a nice trailer or tiny home might be a better arrangement.  We have been living in a trailer from farm to farm for two years looking for a good stable situation.  Now that we have farm to spare we would love to offer that to someone who’s in the same boat we were.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Grow produce and build our duck eggs business. We have 100 laying hens, a few drakes. Mostly breeding stock of egglaying heritage breeds. Harliquins, Anconas, and Dark Cambpells. We plan to sell at market but also wholesale, hopefully raising our flock to a few hundred soon. We also have four geese and a Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dog.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Food forest using regenerative farming practices. A few mobile housing farm partners eventually, ourselves including as I'm using the house this season to transition to a yurt.

We raise ducks and plan to do market vegetables. We could use some larger herbivores or we will cut hay.

If bringing a trailer we understand that it's facilities are limited and are open to sharing house space.
