Entering Farmer: 20190

I am the owner and sole operator of an apothecary and wellness goods brand based in Philadelphia. In addition to the retail end of my business, I have a major focus on herb gardening and land stewardship.

The gardening portion of the operation has been based, over the past 3 years, in an urban community garden plot. As happens with many city garden plots however, this lot will soon be unavailable, leaving me no choice but to relocate to another, ideally more permanent, growing situation.

I am looking to expand my herb and flower growing operation over the next few years on a piece of land that provides enough space to grow a significant amount more crop than I’ve been able to in the past. I will be growing herbs for my in-house herbal product line as well as flowers for a cut-flower program (to sell to florists as well as the public.)

Searching for land within one hour of Philadelphia.
