Entering Farmer: 20187

My wife and I feel led by God to begin a life in farming. I have about 5 years of experience in produce farming and another 4 years in the greenhouse. My wife is a nurse and plans to begin a faith-based non-profit on the farm for young, impoverished mothers. I am currently a sales manager, but I am supposed to be a berry farmer.

What we are looking for is about 20-30 acres suitable to grow strawberries, raspberries, pumpkins, etc., for a pick-your-own style business. A historic home and a small wood lot would be ideal…we are history nuts! Just to be clear, we are not interested in leasing, we are interested in a farm of our own with an old home. We do not have a large budget.

My wife and I are open to Berks, Lancaster, Chester, Lebanon, York, and Adams counties. We know the Lord has this for us, so if you feel led to help a younger married couple achieve their purpose, we hope to hear from you.
