Seeking land to rent or purchase: near Marion county


Land Seeker Description

We are Marcus and Emma Roberts. We dream of farming together as a family with our three kiddos! We currently have a tea and tincture business that we’ve loved to expand into growing the herbs for those products. As well as grow pasture raise meats. We love the idea of no-till farming and pasture raise animals that better the soil instead of depleted it!

Water access. Small slopes for pasturing (no more than 30% inclines)

Describe your farming experience

We’ve raised meat chickens and butchered them ourselves. We’ve grown vegetables and herbs on a small scale in our back yard.

A place to gather people looking for locally grown nourishing food and herbal remedies!

Describe your housing needs
