And to establish my farm as a place to buy quality products from and to create relationships to customers and people in the community. Also to establish my name in the farming community and to learn more about growing different vegetables and herbs and to do as much as I can organically with raising the chickens vegetables and pigs


What are your long term goals

For the long term I’m looking at owning my own property may be also two different properties and to keep the farm and going on both properties and have a farm stand and to sell my products at local farmers markets. Wanting to create something I can pass on to my kids

Looking for something for me and my wife preferably trailer or a standalone house or dwelling something a little bit more private because of my work schedule at present not wanting to wake everybody up when I have to go to work at 4 o’clock in the morning

For me I will greet everyone I meet with a handshake and a wave and a smile. I know there are people that think differently that I do and that’s not a problem. I enjoy hearing and talking to people of different races religions and Beliefs. If we were all the same we could learn nothing from each other.
