Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We are in our tenth year of reclaiming this property for agricultural use. (It was a well-known strawberry farm years and years ago.) Our primary focus has been on rehabilitating and expanding pasture, silvopasture grazing, as well as soil building in large home garden space.
We are open to ideas and conversation about a wide variety of farming/agricultural ventures which:
- are well-suited to this land
- use regenerative agriculture as a model for plans and management
- consider dry cropping as a farming adaptation for hotter, drier summers
- contribute to our local food systems
We are willing and available to mentor, but our primary interest is finding beginning farmers who have the necessary skills and financial resources for their own agricultural business/homesteading.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

We want to continue to steward this farm land, improving it for sustainable food production to benefit our local food systems. We also want to preserve surrounding native forest habitat for wildlife.
We believe practices that grow out of a regenerative agriculture philosophy are vital for building a farm ecosystem that will help future farmers navigate climate change.
