Farming Status and Plans
Years actively farming:Less than 2
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
Hello. I am looking to start a very small-scale farm producing a wide assortment of fruits, vegetables, meats, eggs, and dairy products. My aim is to keep everything organic and to sell locally. I have a dream of starting a small farm-based preschool, where young children can get their hands dirty in the garden or learn basic counting while collecting eggs. I also am playing with the idea of a seasonal restaurant based on the farm, or an airbnb farm experience, where farm-to-table cooking really comes to life.
Does this farmer have a business plan?No

Crops and Livestock
Primary crops:Vegetables, Fruits
Primary Livestock:Cattle - Dairy, Goats/Sheep, Poultry

Experience & education:Other
I do not have any formal training as a farmer, but I am excited and eager to learn. I have a track record of being able to pick things up and turn them into professions when I want to, and this is something I have been longing to do for quite some time. I attended a Waldorf school that shares property with a biodynamic farm. As a child, we often had field days where we would work on the farm. These were my first experiences on a farm. I have raised chickens and gardens. My most recent undertaking is a large garden space on the black dirt in Orange County.
