Room for Brush-Clearing + Meat Goats, Pigs, ???


?

Land Seeker Description

We are Noah & Rachael, a couple with about three years’ experience keeping small herds/flocks of goats, pigs and chickens. We’re now beginning to expand into meat goats with the intent of starting a brush-clearing business.


What features of the property are essential?

Use or a barn and pasture, water rights would be ideal but we can probably figure something out for the right situation.

We would be happy to help rehabilitate extremely overgrown, brush-covered land!


Describe your farming experience

We have successfully kept goats as well as bred & raised pigs, selling both the piglets and the meat.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

We'd like to establish a brush-clearing herd of goats and the business to go with it, and market some excess goats for slaughter (the US is currently a net importer of goat meat, and likely to become even more so in upcoming years). Ideally we will also milk our breeding stock to help feed a small herd of heritage hogs.


What are your long term goals

Acquire good-quality stock to preserve heritage breeds, fully establish a stable business that contributes positively to the environment, and hopefully own a large enough property to securely house & rotationally graze them.


Describe your housing needs

On-site housing preferred - can be primitive or not in great shape. As long as it has working laundry, shower + a roof it's a house to us!


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

We try to be friendly and helpful to all, and we evaluate people as individuals.
