Aspiring farmer: 1 year or less of farming experience
Currently farming part-time
Primary reason for farming
Farm will generate a portion of my income
Farming status, plans, and practices
In my dream world I would like a thriving flower farm with some supplemental crops but mainly flowers. I would love an old barn for use as a wedding venue to generate more supplemental income.
Farm Experience & Education
- Farm internship/apprenticeship
- Farmer training or workshop
- On farm work experience
I've worked on a couple of flower farms. I read a lot. I am always hunting for new information but needing more hands on experience.
Farming Plans and Practices
Farming method or practice
- Organic (certified)
I do not have any livestock currently. I would love to have a bunch though. I would love to have sheep for wool, cows for beef, chickens for meat and eggs, all of them for creating a healthy ecosystem for the farm.
Farm business plan or farm resume
Housing on the location would be great. It could be a studio. More space would be better. Water access is the most important thing at the moment. A barn for working and equipment storage would be necessary. If there is a barn for the potential of livestock that would be ideal but not necessary. I would love to have the basics at the very least and grow and add to the existing space if that is desirable.
I would ideally love a lease to own situation. I am very open minded as I'm new to this world and if an opportunity that is mutually beneficial works out I would love to explore what is possible
