Farming status, plans, and practices
I am currently managing a vegetable farm incubator program. This program is seeking new land to transition to, either in a lease or to purchase. We support farmers from all over the world growing vegetables with organic methods. Most vegetables are taken home directly to households and a portion are sent to market.

I am in my seventh year of farming and my third year of farm management.

I also started and ran my own successful meat rabbit business for two years, selling to retail outlets and restaurants outside of Seattle.
I am currently managing a vegetable farm incubator program for a nonprofit based in Syracuse.
