Proposal for Use of Land: Beginning winter 2023
We are market farmers participating in our county’s local farmer’s
markets. We intend to spend the rest of our professional careers operating a market garden /small farm in order to provide quality products to the consumer that are responsibly produced.
We would like to find land to facilitate this. As we have no mechanical equipment at this time, we can only care for small acreage. We would prefer a land opportunity with housing. We are open to lease or trade.
Allowing the opportunity for consumers to buy directly from the farm on which it is grown is high priority. In the future we envision sharing our passion of working with the earth, especially with youth.
