Farming Status and Plans

Years actively farming:

2-5

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I started an agriculture company that promotes backyard sustainable farming in 2016.  Biodynamic farming is the method I use, things like no till (light till when needed), chop and drop and layering are some of the practices I use;  I also raise and keep layers.  Saved money from the sales of the chicken eggs is how I paid for the LLC.  I have a lot of great ideas that require acreage and a team.  Up until this point everything that has been built has been bootsrapped and I would enjoy very much working with a group of like-minded people.

This is the mission statement or vision that I have dedicated myself to for the past 5 years.

Our mission is to rethink sustainability and traditional organic farming methods, to create new thrivable practices to allow us to have a mutualistic relationship with the land we grow on. We want to provide ourselves, as well as our family, friends and community with natural food and plant based products hand made on the farm. We also want to facilitate a deeper connection with nature by sharing the wisdom of Permaculture Farming, ultimately to encourage more self sufficient and healthy communities.
