Farming status, plans, and practices



I am looking for a dairy farm where I can keep cattle and elaborate dairy-based products such as cheese and butter. Ideally, this will be a small-to-mid size operation to support a family business, as well as be a land where me and my family can live in full or close proximity. While I am currently looking to lease the land, I am interested in potentially buying the property in the long-term.

For generations, my family was tendered the land and specialized in cattle in our native Puerto Rico. We currently elaborate a diverse line of dairy products. We are looking for move northward to be closer to our extended family – also farmers – who are spread out all over the Eastern Seaboard of the United States.

As my preferred language of communication is Spanish, I am requestioning the American Farmland Trust assistance to be part of our initial interactions. If interested in my profile, please feel free to reach out in Spanish or CC’ing AFT team member Jose Lopez Ganem ([email protected]) for ease of communication.


Busco una finca lechera donde pueda tener ganado y elaborar productos a base de lácteos como queso y mantequilla. Idealmente, esta será una operación de tamaño pequeño a mediano para apoyar un negocio familiar, así como también ser un terreno donde mi familia y yo podamos vivir en plena proximidad. Si bien actualmente estoy buscando arrendar el terreno, estoy interesado en comprar potencialmente la propiedad a largo plazo.

Durante generaciones, mi familia fue tierna de la tierra y se especializó en la ganadería en nuestro natal Puerto Rico. Actualmente elaboramos una diversa línea de productos lácteos. Estamos buscando mudarnos hacia el norte para estar más cerca de nuestra familia extendida, también agricultores, que se encuentran repartidos por toda la costa este de los Estados Unidos.
