Description of tenure options:

We are very flexible on this, but would probably gravitate toward a shorter-term lease in the beginning to assess the relationship. We are also open to partnerships as I have an interest, experience and abilties in agricultural pursuits. My other work arrangements don't allow me to pursue it full time, so a partership could work well.
