Farmstead dairy seeks purchase of 50-200 acres


?

Land Seeker Description

Grassward Dairy seeks a permanent home for our farmstead microdairy.

We have been dairying for 10 years, in business for ourselves 4 years on 50 acres of leased land in the Coast Range.

We have a loyal customer base and updated business plan.

Our farming passion includes land rehabilitation, management intensive grazing, regenerative agriculture, humane animal care and artisinal dairy production.

We are flexible on the amount of land, as it depends on quality and things change over time. We plan to graze as well as make hay for winter stockpile.

Irrigation rights are essential.

A good barn is more desirable than a good house; we are willing and able to make improvements.

Please be in touch with any possibilities; we are ready to grow! (and graze!)
