Seeking land to lease


Land Seeker Description

We are a small family of 3 and are looking for land to build a small farm on so that we can become as self-sufficient as possible, while also utilizing the land to produce high yielding varieties of leafy greens and herbs to sell/trade locally in our community. We would like to go into full-time cultivation of these HYV to be consumed by our local community year round. We are interested in permaculture farming techniques that reduce waste, use natural fertilizers, and that utilizes natural resources. We have a large garden in our yard, 2 indoor grow tents with living soils bins, and a greenhouse that we utilize year round, but would love to get into actual farming. Currently, we sell/trade/give our crops and medicinal salves to friends, families, and neighbors, but would like to expand so that we can continue to learn and grow our business and farming experience.

What features of the property are essential?

Water, electricity

Describe your farming experience


Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

We would like to grow enough food to contribute to the community we live in and to help benefit the local farming movement.
Raise chickens and possibly rabbits to sustain ourselves initially and sell at the local farmers market or other places.

What are your long term goals

We would like to build up a small farm so that we can work and live off the land and become as self-sufficient as possible, while also growing HYV of leafy greens (and possibly peppers if space permits, as we have been growing and producing those consistently year round as well) and herbs, especially in winter months, to sell/trade locally in our community. We want to grow these to sell year round, so we would ideally love a greenhouse that we can utilize in winter months to keep the business sustainable. Long term I would like to also be able to sell/trade the herbal and medicinal products that I make with the herbs we grow, such as salves, tinctures and other natural products.

Describe your housing needs

It would be ideal to have housing on the property but it wouldn’t be a deterrent 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?

We would welcome everyone with open arms and minds! We’d also follow community rules and/or guidelines and contribute whatever we could to help continue to build an effective and collaborative community.
