Seeking acreage for small sheep flock, dog, and garden


Land Seeker Description

I am a 23 year old nature loving man with a small flock of sheep, a dog, and dreams of as much land as I can handle. Would like to be involved with garden, farm, orchard, wild crops, + animals, whether mine or yours. In the past I have rented land for my own small farm, work traded at a vineyard, and partnered on a cannabis production garden.

My long term vision in life is to establish my family, or even a village in a landscape where nature and farm interface, to cultivate diverse riches at every scale possible. For now, I seek to learn and practice toward that end.
