I am a beginner farmer looking for a bit of land to start an herb and flower garden for my tea business. My business partner and I are currently in the works of launching our online store and will be outsourcing our herbal blends through “private label.” The 2 to 4 year goal is to create our teas and blends from herbs that we personally farm and harvest. I am interested in land that has been farmed using organic and regenerative methods and has access to well water. I am also looking for a structure on site (electricity included) that can be used/converted as a drying room and packing station. Willing to work with a greenhouse if the land cannot be farmed.
On-site sewer and electricity. I prefer a private-well on site but am willing to work with property that has water rights. A barn or structure that can be used as a drying room and packing station is essential as well. Herbs and flowers I want to grow prefer a hardiness zone between 7 and 9 as well as loamy and porous soil, and need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day. I am also willing to do operations in a greenhouse.
No certification or educational background, but I have been farming as a work-trade for the last 2 years. Farming practices I have learned focus around small-scale organic and regenerative farming as well as permaculture principles.
Short term goals would be to produce herbs to create herbal blends for our tea business within the next 2 years. I also need to have the ability to close down operations in the winter (cold) season so that I can be in Hawaii at least 3 months out of the year.
I cannot foresee at this time if I would need the land more than 3 years. There is a possibility I will be fully running my operations in Hawaii in the next 4 years.
Would prefer housing on property. I am okay with it being a temporary structure (RV/Camper, tiny home)
Desire to be involved in neighboring work co-operatives as well as host or facilitate workshops on the land that are inclusive to all cultures and backgrounds.
