Land Seeker Description

Hi, my name is Caleb. I am seeking to lease land for my diverse, regenerative farm. I utilize holistic practices in agricultural, ecological, and social contexts. I grow vegetables, grains, fruit, and have a very small herd of dairy cows. Please see this linked flyer with more details about me and my partner Chelsey.


What features of the property are essential?

A barn for the livestock is necessary, along with agricultural water rights. A pond and/or river are highly preferred, along with 10+ acres of cropland. Please see the attached flyer above.


Describe your farming experience

I have been farming since 2013. I graduated from UC Davis with a degree in Agricultural Science. I have worked on dozens of farms, ranging from dairy farms, to vegetable farms, fruit orchards, school education farms, permaculture landscaping, beekeeping, holistic planned grazing cattle on 3000 acre preserve. I have been milking three cows and two goats of my own for a couple years now, and I have two livestock protection dogs.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

Full diet csa: dairy, eggs, meats, vegetables, herbs. Also planting many trees, natives and edibles. Direct marketing value-added products.


What are your long term goals

Creat community village, with on-farm cafe, marketplace, educational and resort programs, alternative housing for foster youth, cultural event space; all in collaboration with different managing experts.


Describe your housing needs

A farm house with at least 3 bedrooms would be ideal, and more ideal if there were additional dwelling units as well.
