Couple seeking residential farming opportunities

Land Seeker Description

Greetings,

We are a couple (31&23) looking for an opportunity to start a semi-long term farming business with support from landowners. I have experience with pastured poultry and pork, fruit trees and berries, vegetable row-cropping, and my partner has experience with commercial gourmet mushrooms. We are interested in finding property where we would be able to reside and invest in a commercial farming opportunity. We would be very helpful hands to have around a homestead/farm operation, with significant experience in forestry, construction, farming, and land management.

I have a middle aged medium sized dog who is very well-behaved and experienced around farm animals.


What features of the property are essential?

I would need to have access to a shop/shed/barn or storage space that was dry and secure, as I currently run a part-time tree service business. We also would like to have housing available on the property.


Describe your farming experience

I grew up on a farm with a variety of animals, and have spent many years in an out of WWOOF'ing, teaching gardening in outdoor education programs, and experimenting with small farm operations myself.

My partner has several years experience working at a commercial gourmet mushroom farm and working at the farmer's market.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

We are interested in starting a commercial gourmet mushroom operation while supporting an existing farming operation in whatever way we can.


What are your long term goals

Our long-term goals are to be part of a community that focuses on regenerative farming, community engagement, and education/outreach. We are interested in producing off-farm income as well by starting a youth education program.


Describe your housing needs

We are interested in somewhere that has housing or would accommodate a small home or yurt type of situation.


What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

We respect all people and recognize that the greatest challenge for humanity right now is to simply see each other, recognize our individual stories, and appreciate and accept whatever we are all going through. We practice unconditional kindness and respect for people and seek to be in a place that supports this concept.
