Land Seeker Description

My partner and I have been building up our vegetable garden the last couple years in our backyard in town, and are ready to transition into farming. We are seeking a small, manageable space to get started as beginners. Ideally the site we’re looking for would have water and power access, and we would like for our dogs to be on site with us while we work.

Describe your farming experience

We have both hobby gardened off an on for several years: vegetables, berries, some fruit trees and landscaping.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Our short term goals are to build knowledge and recover costs where we can through sale of goods via markets etc.
We are open to growing based on what the land is best suited for. Growing and selling vegetables, seed starts, cut flowers, and/or berries would be a great start. Ideally we could add would add bees and/or chickens before too long.


What are your long term goals

Long term we would like to have a large scale operation, with particular interest in berries, sheep, and goats. We are very interested in regenerative and sustainable agriculture and are open to pivoting as we learn what works best in the space.


Describe your housing needs

We do not desire on site housing.


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

For starters, it's often as easy as treating all others how you want to be treated. We respect all different backgrounds and cultures.
