Seeking Land to Lease for Medicinal Herbs/vegetables/fruit


?

Land Seeker Description

My name is Shelby and I’m looking for land, preferably a smaller amount of acreage, where I can farm medicinal herbs, veggies, fruit and fungi to sell locally. My goal is to start smaller and expand, still keeping the acreage at a maximum of 5 over less over the years. My primary focus is herbs right now, but I would like to explore other things as the years go on, such as specialty vegetables, fruits, fungi and smaller fowl/game.


What features of the property are essential?

Irrigation, outbuildings if any are available, and land that has potential to be certified organic.


Describe your farming experience

I have been farming for the last ten years, some seasons have been working for other farms, while others have been exclusively farming for myself and my herbal business. I have management experience from working at a couple different farms as well.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I am looking to expand my medicinal herb business to include farming some specialized vegetables, fruit, fungi, and potentially smaller game and fowl.


What are your long term goals

I would like to establish things grown and systems that are centered around permaculture principles. This will probably include some perennials that take longer the establish.


Describe your housing needs

Open to housing if available, but not necessary if not.


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

I would love to at some point establish the area I am farming to be a place where farm-related workshops can be hosted, as well as possibly creating a farmstand and hosting smaller events.
