Entering Farmer 20111
My wife and I are looking for land to start our diversified farming operation in Lancaster, Southern Berks, Eastern York, Western Chester, or Southern Lebanon Counties. Lancaster is preferred. I have been managing diversified small fruit, vegetable and poultry operations for 7 years and farming for 9. We are looking for around 15 acres to buy, lease, or rent to own. I am an organic famer by training but land that was not organically managed is not excluded by any means. If the land has a house, that would be great, but again that is not absolutely necessary. The type of operation that we would be running would require an extensive infrastructure, so if a lease/rent situation, it would need to be long-term. I am dedicated to farming as my life's work.
