Land Seeker Description

Hello!
We are two families looking for land to buy or lease to own within 60 miles of the coast. Must have a water source and or water rights. A creek would be ideal but springs work as well. Need Cell service capabilities and while we are working towards an off grid system I care for my elderly mother so we need electricity for her oxygen machine. Would love for it to have a livable structure that we can build upon. Must be accessible by a regular vehicle.
We plan on a few hoop houses for microgreens as well as vegetable beds and some livestock such as chickens and goats. We plan on organic so a past of non pesticide use would be ideal. I have a degree in Sustainable Agriculture and we have experience in Herbalism and natural building. The other woman is a Midwife/ Doula. We have two grown children with us and 4 children. Ideally we are looking for 40 acres of mixed forest/meadow with a creek.


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights a well and a water source are all essential. I would like a mix of forest/meadow(pasture). A barn would be super. Fences would be exceptional.


Describe your farming experience

We have always had productive gardens and I got into raising chickens 7 years ago. I went to school at age 47 to learn Sustainable Agriculture to live the life I have always wanted. We have collective experience with gardening, herbalism, animal husbandry and natural building.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I plan on having 2 hoop houses dedicated to salad greens and micro greens for sale to restaurants and farmers markets. I also plan on having a green house to grow some exotic plants for a nursery in San Francisco from which I already have a buyer. We also plan on growing herbs for teas and herbal tinctures.


What are your long term goals

Long term I would like to raise goats and make artisan cheeses as well as the above. Also the expansion of hoop houses and market for microgreens, salad greens and hot house tomatoes. I am also continuing my education and plan on teaching Regenerative Agriculture classes as well as natural building workshops.


Describe your housing needs

Ideally the property would have a permitted structure to live In while creating cob and or log studios. A barn would be a huge plus.
