Entering Farmer: 20354

I am currently a Livestock Nutrition Consultant for a supplement company, but I have previously worked in roles as a vegetable farmer, field technician, and livestock manager. All of these prior positions were held on organic farms.

I am looking to work into having a beef herd of my own. I would also be interested in operating a dairy, if the situation is right.

I currently have a few beef steers of my own, and help out on a dairy farm on most weekends.

I would likely have to keep my office position while I started the farm, so starting small-ish and local would be ideal. The office is located in Lancaster County, between Harrisburg and Lancaster city.
