My wife and I would like to become first generation farmers. Both of us have a strong appreciation for nature and preserving land for agricultural purposes.
My wife and I are the perfect match for becoming first time farmers. I currently run a family business with my brother and father and am excited to expand this entrepreneurship into the agricultural industry. Through my company I have access to trucks, trailers, warehousing, and labor. In running my family business, I have gained valuable business experience that sets me apart from many individuals looking to get into farming who may not have the business experience or infrastructure. I also have access to capital and am familiar with applying for state and federal loans and finding unconventional funding sources.
My wife is a licensed professional geologist in Pennsylvania and a practicing environmental geologist with extensive experience in soil and hydrology. She is also in the process of completing her PhD in the Earth and Planetary Sciences Department at Rutgers University. Her PhD is focused on plant ecology and how plants are impacted by hydrology and soil characteristics. She provides a great technical background that will support our operation and facilitate innovative and sustainable agricultural growth.
At home, we love tending our land, and have already fostered this love in our 2 year old son who joins us in our work (he especially likes harvesting strawberries and riding the tractor). When we think about the future of land use in Pennsylvania, we think of him and how he and the other children of the next generation deserve good, healthy and accessible land to work and healthy food to eat. We are passionate about promoting this vision of the future and look forward to speaking with like-minded members of our community.
