Land Seeker Description

I’m a small scale flower grower (specializing in flowers that dry well) with a small herd of milking goats who has founded and run a small scale farming/value added product business focusing on thoughtful eco-friendly giving for all of life’s seasons.

Seeking farmland zoned agricultural with water rights (or municipal water) to buy or long term lease (at least 15 years with an option to purchase) to farm regeneratively/organically. Focusing on perennial flowers and herbs, with space desired for annuals. Desire to put in rainwater catchment, solar, and be an epicenter within the community for sustainable living/farming/growing.  In my wildest dreams would LOVE a place to gather.. a mini event center or barn as venue.

What features of the property are essential?

water rights
proper zoning
good soil for flower growing
land that has known history without pesticides
place for a tiny home or two

Describe your farming experience

I worked as a farm crew member at a certified organic farm for several years before renting my own plot on the farm to grow my own crop. This is the third year of having my own space to grow, but we are looking to move closer to family and grow my business. In order to do that, we need infrastructure and more room.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Plant perennials, get infrastructure in order to ensure harvest of flowers and smooth transition from the land I'm currently on. Grow our goat herd. Apply for USDA grant to grow my business (working with consultant now to prepare).

What are your long term goals

Become an epicenter for regenerative farming/sustainable living. A place for education and a community hub.

Describe your housing needs

Small home and/or place for a tiny home or two.

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

Respectfully learning about other people, their experiences and beliefs while honoring each other's sovereignty is key. I will continue my education on how to be a conscious ally, and practice what I learn by being welcoming and inclusive. I am currently a graduate student in a program that also teaches effective allyship, community building and how to bring ideas and people together into new forms of consensus and relationship.
