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

My daughter and I are looking to purchase approximately 10+ acres of a well loved, older farm, or a habitable house on land that would support the growth of herbs, vegetables, a dog, and animals such as goats, or sheep, chickens and a horse or two.
We will be growing culinary, medicinal and endangered herbs, fruits and vegetables in an edible forest garden landscape, formulated within a permaculture based, bio-intensive model.
We intend to create a sanctuary for plants, animals and all people by working in, through and with the intelligence and rhythms of the natural world. Our goal is to create a place of peace that will encourage learning, growth and understanding, while working towards regeneration of the soil without the aid of fossil fuels.
Thank you for your time.
