Land Seeker Description

For the past year, my husband Daniel and I have been looking for  farmland to start a polyculture garden for growing seasonal fruits, vegetables, and a wide variety of non-perishable value-added products that can be sold year round. We are both very interested in social justice, hosting farm-to-table dinners, agro-tourism and educational workshops. 
In 2019, we completed a year long farming apprenticeship in North Fork, California at the Kern Family Farm. During that time we learned all the basics of running a 5 acre market garden, selling produce at farmers markets, and delivering weekly orders to local restaurants. 
We have a fifteen-month-old son, Sage and and we would like him to be raised in a natural environment where he can see where his food comes from (we are currently living in Seattle in the Queen Ann area), so we are very interested in child-safe housing is a must.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

What features of the property are essential?

Irrigation and greenhouses.
