Farming Status and Plans

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

My partner and I are experienced livestock and vegetable farmers seeking land to start a farm in the Hudson Valley. For the last two years we have both been working at Stone Barns for Food and Agriculture managing the regenerative livestock operations. We would like to start a holistic vegetable and livestock operation that supplies nutrient dense produce and animal products to the community. We are passionate about responsible land stewardship, ecosystem health, and accessible high quality food.
