Entering Farmer: #20387

We are a young(ish!) couple and aspiring farmers looking to establish an agroforestry farm in our home of Adams County. We are passionate about regenerative agriculture and agroforestry, and plan to create a perennial polyculture system centered on tree and woody shrub crops.

We’ve presented our robust business plan to several local lenders, our local economic development office, and our local land conservancy (we plan to preserve our farm),and are pleased that they have all been very supportive of our vision. We are also currently enrolled in the AgBiz Masters Program with Horizon Farm Credit. 

We are targeting around 40 acres in active or fallow row crop, orchard, or pasture (some wooded areas also OK), within Adams County. While we would prefer to purchase, we are also open to a long-term lease of 35 years or more, and are happy to explore other creative arrangements, such as occupancy rights that would allow the current owner to remain in their home for as long as they’d like. We would love to share more details about what we are looking for, along with more information about us and our vision. 

As is the case for many aspiring farmers, land access is proving to be our biggest challenge. We are looking forward to partnering with a seller whose vision for the future of their land aligns with our own, and who is interested in helping the next generation of young farmers put down roots. Any support you may be willing to provide will be deeply appreciated, thank you!
