Land Seeker Description

Hello and thank you for taking the time to check out our information.

We (married couple) are  interested in market farming, you pick farms, cut flower, long growing medical plants, farm to table, dry land farming, eco tourism, heirloom seed production, horse and plow farming.  We are also interested and have experience  with sheep for fiber and meat, chickens and other foul, horses, and goats.

Our background for the last 10 years has been in horticulture, I have worked with the city of Boise community gardens and youth education for many farm to table classes as well as being the garden manager on 3 acres. My husband and I started a small business 3 years ago doing personal gardening, we have several clients and care for many types of gardens and landscapes. We maintain stunning flower gardens and victory food production gardens. We always try to teach and implement pollinator friendly, organic, environmentally friendly, xeriscape and sustainable practice. We both went to college for horticulture.

We are looking to move west from Idaho to a warmer growing zone to expand our growing capacity, and to be in a smaller community. We know how to use and maintain most farming equipment. We are mellow hard working people that like to be outdoors working or playing and we get along well with kids, animals  and most people.

Hoping to find a place to live on site, we have a camper for short term housing. Definitely looking at building small home ,cobb house, straw bail, passive home but that is down the road.
Please feel free to call me or email me, thank you for your consideration

Naomi and Raymond
