My interest in gardening began at a young age and I have spent quite a few years working my way up to the point where I had a marketable quantity of produce.
My focus was always on organic methods. I’ve also raised sheep and goats. I have earned my Bachelors Degree in Environmental Science. I have worked at a myriad of agricultural/horticulture jobs from farms, to nurseries, garden center, and landscaping.
Currently I am employed with a premier regenerative, organic farm/greenhouse/market and café as their Agricultural Director. I have been with them from the start and quickly made my way into the position which I now hold.
I have never owned a farm and previously operated my entrepreneurial effort off of land leased from family.
I am using Farm Link because I am very interested to explore opportunities to access land and further my personal farming goals. I am looking to lease, lease to own, or buy a farm roughly in the range of 10 to 20 acres.
I am open to pursuing the best opportunity, but ideally the farm would be located in southeast Pennsylvania. I would like to continue organic farming practices in a mixed production setting, ie. Vegetables, fruits, herbs, flowers, and livestock. Many factors could influence my farming business plan from what is produced to how it is to be marketed. Housing on site is preferable. I am a 40 year old married man with two children. I’ve always loved nature and to be outdoors.
