Farming Status and Plans

Years actively farming:

Less than 2

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I am a looking for 20acres or less to lease for 1-5 years with the option to either renew/extend the lease, or buy out the property at the end of my tenure. I plan on growing legal marijuana on a small scale indoors, and outdoors try my hand at growing hemp/lettuces/other leafy greens.

I would be practicing growing marijuana/hemp with 12 plants (the legal limit) until I got my cultivation's license in 2022. Then I will market my product to dispensaries.
