Entering Farmer: #20298

My husband and I are beginning farmers currently enrolled in the Beginner Farmer Training Program at Rutgers University.

Currently we own a small farmette in Burlington County, New Jersey where we raise small stature dairy animals including registered Nigerian Dwarf goats and miniature cattle (Jersey’s and Belted Galloway-Dexter crosses). We also have pastured poultry and sell eggs to local customers.

Recently, we have started a market garden where we grow vegetables intensively in a small space. I am a bread baker and will be applying for a cottage food permit in order to sell my bread along with the produce that we grow next season.

Off of the farm, I work part-time as a pediatric nurse practitioner and my husband is a full-time machine operator for the local gas company. Growing up, my uncle had a beef operation in Potter County, Pennsylvania. Though he no longer actively farms, he still resides on the land and is our mentor. We are looking to purchase a larger farm property so that we can expand our current operation which would include beef and possibly a micro dairy in the future!
