Farming Status and Plans

Years actively farming:

6-10

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I, along with my small family, am looking for land to either take over and manage, or to purchase to be able to build the vision of our next step. 
Vision:
I co-own and run a farm that is the culmination of all the years I have dedicated to learning how to build and grow a truly regenerative and resilient model of abundance and connection. We focus on Agro-Forestry and pasture raised animals. We raise bison, cows, pigs, sheep, goats and chickens. Our farm plays a huge role in bringing our ecosystem back to the thriving nature it once had, and beyond. All while producing the healthiest, most nutritionally dense foods for ourselves and community.

Description of marketing method:

Our marketing method will be diverse and spread out. Living both online, and in a community ranch to table\ ranch shop on site, form.
