Young Queer Couple seeking regenerative/ sustainable farm to lease, trade, or pass on to next generation.


Land Seeker Description

We are a young couple looking for a place to set up a homestead and farm as a way to bring food equity to our surrounding communities. Poppy has loved farming and growing things from a very young age. They are 26 and have gone to community college and studied sustainable agriculture as well as having a small background in bio science. They have spent a lot of their childhood growing culturally significant food with their dad and from that has stemmed a passion of growing food and spending time with plants. Poppy has spent their adult years volunteering at community gardens as well as doing a lot of backyard gardening. Courtney has had 10+  years of real time farm experience working at a Christmas tree farm, as well as spending 6 months Woofing on a small scale blueberry farm in Seattle. These two very different farming experiences taught her so much and helped gain a plethora of knowledge from other experienced farmers. Together Poppy and Courtney have been able to hone in their gardening and farming skills and are looking for expansion and freedom. We are open to any types of possibilities when it comes to what we farm however we feel very strongly about being sustainable and always acknowledging who’s land we are on.
