Seeking lease to own, creative solution or mentorship


Land Seeker Description



My name is Joseph Thompson. My wife and I along with our three children are ready to live a more natural life and make our living off the land. We are open to various types of operations and I plan on utilizing my background in marketing, sales and I.T. to help grow our farm business. We would love to connect with any farmers that have a passion for keeping the land they’ve taken care of with a young family that wants to continue their vision. Our goal is to eventually pass down land to our children and have them avoid the hustle and bustle that all seems so fake in today’s society. We also have a vision of building a small farm school that will teach in person and online. This will help provide income and inspire others to live a more natural life. Thank you very much for taking the time to read this listing. We look forward to connecting with you!
