Description of tenure options:

This farm currently serves as our home and location for our horse training business. However, we have purchased a second, larger farm with the plan of moving most of our business to this larger farm. We are interested in leasing or renting most of this farm to a younger farmer in need of farmland and housing. Because this farm has the indoor arena, we would need to continue using the smaller, 3-stall barn and two fields but make available the other fields, other barn and house to another farmer. Our ideal situation is to rent or lease to someone with enough horse experience to assist in the feed and care of the three horses we would have on the property in exchange for a reduction in rent/lease payments. If we find a good farmer and develop a good relationship, we open to a plan that would make it possible for this farmer eventually to purchase the farm at some point in the future.
