Alex has raised chicken and his own beef cattle for years. Family used to be involved in dairy farming. He is looking to go back to the roots and start dairy farming again while also mainting his flock of chickens. He is interested in finding a farm that is well established with the equipment that he would need to start farming. Doesn't have to be in operation, but useable. Alex would like to partner with an older farmer who is preparing or ready to transfer over his land.
