Entering Farmer: 20248

I am a father of three with a full-time job in Information Technology. I am looking to purchase approximately 10-20 acres of farmland in order to start a Christmas tree farm. Ideally, I would be working part time on the farm with my wife and children until I retire from my regular job and then hopefully move over to tree farming full time. I hope to eventually work toward a cut-your-own tree farm, but may try to sell trees by purchasing them wholesale while my trees grow. I have experience planting many Fraser fir trees on my 2+ acre property as well as with irrigation, herbicide and pesticide management. Development rights to the land is a plus but not a necessity.

Mainly looking for an area in Berks, Upper Montgomery or Southern Lehigh counties.
