Describe your farming experience

Farmed through the rogue farm in 2018 for mahonia gardens.

2019- Backyard farming on brothers lot for a single season in Texas.

2020- Tried to start an urban market garden business in Washington state. Due to coved pandemic business was shut down.

2021- started small urban farm on friends land in Texas.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

start a small urban farm that’s profitable. Getting a true feel on how to run a market garden that pays back. Understanding marketing better and how to really sell the product, but not getting bigger. Maxing the smallest acreage possible and not burning out.


What are your long term goals

As a part of farming I would love to teach people how to market garden. I wouldn’t necessarily want to build my farm bigger and bigger. Keep it small and running well, and perhaps in winter time around the states somewhere consulting to build people small backyard gardens to feed themselves.

As well as perhaps starting a small farm franchise if feasible. Building anywhere from 1/2 acre or less farms in multiple places in the United States.


Describe your housing needs

Need housing available on farm site
