We are new farmers. The last two years we leased a five-acre farm and a fifty-acre farm site in NJ. These properties had irrigation, high tunnels and barns. We farm with the purpose of offering fresh fruit and vegetables to underserved communities. We believe in less inputs and a healthy regenerative process to growing food. We currently operate an online marketplace which features home delivery to try to get nutritious foods into the hands of those who need it most.
Prior to this I have worked in regional hospitals as a Culinary & Nutritional Manager, and I have 30+ years in the gourmet restaurant and resort industry.
We are seeking either a smaller parcel to grow vegetables and herbs, to supply my customers and a farmers’ market, or a larger parcel with support to help make the venture successful. 5-100 acres sought depending on the situation, we are flexible.
