Hopeful future farmer looking for land to make a start on


?

Land Seeker Description

I am a 30 year old “city kid” with no experience in the agricultural industry with big dreams of shaking things up.  I have a dream of regenerating the landscape using planned rotational grazing to integrate cattle&meat sheep, followed by pigs, followed by chickens.


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, irrigation would be ideal, electricity, a somewhat established pasture, history of the land would be nice too


Describe your farming experience

I have none. My dad grew up on a homestead, I visited my grandparents often as a young child. I've gardened a little bit. All I have is a vision


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

In the next 5 years, I'm really looking to get my foot into the door. I'd like to see myself on some property with the freedom to exercise the plans that I have cooked up in my head.


What are your long term goals

My long term plans I say would take much more than 10 years, but I'd love to see a full-scale operation where I am producing plenty of meat/produce with minimal inputs, while healing the soil instead of robbing from it. In 10 years time I'd hope to be operating a ranch capable of providing at least 3 incomes.


Describe your housing needs

As is, I own my own home. If I were to find something that could support me full time I would look at selling and moving closer to farm. Until then, I plan on commuting. Housing is something that could be ironed out another time
