Condition & Current Use

1 acre of vegetable ground- mostly managed in permanent beds, no-till.

70 acres in diverse pasture mix. Would prefer this be managed as rotationally-grazed pasture, if at all. Especially because I continue to do large fruit/nut tree plantings into these pastures (alleycropping/silvopasture)

Soil Types

Soil survey shows a mix of silty clays and clay loam. On the ground, more clayey as much of the land was farmed hard by previous owner.

Farm History & Past Use

The majority of the acreage was operated as a family dairy farm for 100+ years, then had GMO corn/beans until 2018. The last few years have seen me working to get perennial pasture established and continue to develop ~1ac of permanent beds for vegetables.

Business Partnership Farm Management

I am looking for someone who wants to manage the 1ac of veggies for CSA, stand, and restaurant sales for the 2022 season, and potentially beyond. This could be like an incubator farm position, as infrastructure and markets are in place. This position would be ideal for someone with experience farming who wants to hone their management skills.

Also, I am interested in longer-term collaborative land management. If you have big dreams that are aligned with an ecology-first mindset and need access to land, get in touch!

Are you willing to mentor a new or beginning farmer?

Negotiable

Do you require a farmer who qualifies for agricultural assessment?

No

Production Preferences

Livestock / Crops Description

I am, in general, more drawn to perennial production. If someone has a strong desire to grow a specialty annual crop and does it with soil health in mind, I am open to talking about that. I like the idea of livestock being integrated into these systems as long as grazing is well-managed and they don't get out and eat the fruit and nut trees!
