Entering Farmer #20254
I am a 32 year old veteran and beginning rancher/farmer looking to lease land on which to launch a sustainable agriculture production operation. I have recently completed the veterans agricultural business training program Battleground to Breaking Ground offered by Texas A&M/Texas AgrAbility . While attending the course I obtained knowledge, skills and resources related to business management, farming, and ranching. I also refined my business proposal which lays out my phased plan to begin and grow the business for which I will produce pasture raised poultry, pork, and beef products, with a goal of eventually adding fresh produce and value added products. My first phase enterprise is pastured poultry. My plan can be adapted to scale to available land, although I am seeking a property capable of sustaining growth, an enclosed building such as a shed or barn would be a great feature.
Looking For Arrangement Type:
Buy / Lease / Lease To Own
Farmer's Intended Methods:

I do not currently have any livestock and will be building my flock to be raised using rotational grazing methods in mobile sheltering facilities. If authorized and the required space is available small scale pork and beef cattle enterprises may be started.
