Lease or Lease to Own

Land Seeker Description

We’re  experienced farmers looking to expand our existing cut flower businesses. We’d love a longer term lease as we are hoping to establish a diverse mix of perennials, some of which wouldn’t be ready to harvest for three years. At minimum, we need one acre land, but would want space to expand. We have existing accounts and proven records of being able to produce a crop.

We are not certified organic, but are committed to using regenerative practices like low till, no spray, fostering a healthy soil biology, and creating pollinator habitat.


What features of the property are essential?

Some structure would be great. Electricity is a plus. Water rights are also nice.


Describe your farming experience

I’ve run a cut flower farm in the area for the past six seasons. Prior to that, I worked on vegetable farms and in nurseries.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

We want to establish a diverse mix of perennials including roses, peonies, iris, clematis, woodies, bulbs, and other should season perennials.


What are your long term goals

Continue to build upon perennial offerings. We believe that growing shoulder season crops is the best way to have a financially sustainable farm business. It is also and environmentally friendly alternative to out of season flowers that get shipped in for major holidays.


Describe your housing needs

It’s always lovely to live on site, but not necessary.
