Land Seeker Description

Beginner farmer looking to get into a small acre of vegetables farming with a partner.

We are looking to produce a large quantity of peppers for hot sauce production.


What features of the property are essential?

Water for a growing season of vegetables.


Describe your farming experience

No larger scale experience but I have several years of backyard gardening. I grew up with my grandparents and they grew several vegetables and canned dozens of Mason jars every year.
My partner's family also maintained a family garden but they also grew Christmas trees on five of their ten acres. So he has a bit of larger scale experience.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Short term we hope to grow vegetables on an acre of land and learn some of the basics of growing quality, organic food for a small commercial operation.

Thanks,


What are your long term goals

Longer term we hope to learn how to successfully produce vegetables on a small organic farm.


Describe your housing needs

None, I have housing.


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

I've always thought diversity is a very strong trait in a community. I'll do anything in my power to make those of any background feel welcome.
