Land Seeker Description

I am a single mid fifties guy with off and on 30 years experience on and around small farms including blueberries, vegetables, small orchards and my own mid scale poultry operation.  I have started and run other businesses of my own and have plenty of mechanical, small construction, marketing and administrative experience.  I lean Organic, love to make food in all forms/ on all levels, and have a science/ technology education including some graduate study.   I’ve dabbled in seed saving.

I’m looking for a piece of land and farming situation for the rest of my life which could be sole ownership, but more ideally forming a partnership.  My personal focus is on land stewardship, creative and appropriate use leaning to permaculture and multi-use, i.e. animals and fruit/ veggie production.  Using tree lines or forest islands as weather and predator buffers is an example of using existing land features or design to create micro climates and or enhance season extension.
