Description of the property’s current condition and current use(s):
If a partnership were a ship that could sail, it would be by the winds of compatible collaborative vision. I'm designing several small, mid-size farm enterprises that fit my budget. Success at the scale I'm proposing depends on partnering. You may want to consider it. I can't farm alone and wouldn't want to if I could.
I have $500K life savings to invest in a farm preferably in Dutchess or Columbia counties. I imagine contributing $100K+/- as my buy into the new partnership and offering a spending plan of up $350,000, by year five, with profit-sharing on partnered enterprises.
If you like the idea, let me do a quick study with Google Earth and other software to see if the enterprises I'm planning match your landscape. See my Primrose Hill Farm Plan link below.
I'll live and work farm enterprises year-round. My goal is to secure a pastured livestock market, providing foods managed holistically, within a regenerative farm model. The value-added products I'm planning include; specialty mushrooms, cut flowers, agrotourism, small herb/market garden,… .
I hope you'll call and talk about how we can make our farm dreams and land stewardship real.
