Married Couple with two boys (4 and 6) looking to purchase or lease land to farm and, ideally, live on. We have experience farming and I (Mike) worked as a school garden coordinator and Environmental Educator in SE Ohio before moving to the area. My wife grew up on a farm. I also have a masters in Environmental Studies with a focus on Conservation Agriculture, and have participated in many permaculture workshops.
My dream is to establish an agro-ecosystem that is profitable while still enhancing the area’s biodiversity. A farm that can act as a model of sustainable, environmentally friendly production.
Water. Electricity. Ability to build or house on site to use.
I have farmed small plots of land in SE Ohio, producing mainly vegetable crops. I have worked on permaculture farms. I also have a degree in conservation agriculture, have worked as an environmental educator at a camp where we grew food, and headed a non-profit's school garden program in SE Ohio.
My wife grew up on an orchard.
Build a house. Begin land prep and establish first crops. Start to build a CSA program through marketing.
Have a functioning agro-ecosystem which produces multiple crops and animal products. Begin workshops and training for other new farmers.
We are looking for a place with a house. If not a house, then the option to build on the land. We would like a place we could live for sometime.
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
