Farming Plans and Practices
Farming method or practice
Will have a mix of pigs, sheep, and laying and broiler chickens. A rotational grazing method will ensure soil health and benefit vegetable production as well as meat and egg production.
Will participate in markets, enable word of mouth, inform restaurants and events, and more. Will also market through nutritional programs to get nutrionists involved in food as medicine when grown well.
Farm business plan or farm resume
Family housing is preferred but raw land acceptable. A barn and/or storage facilities are also preferred.
Interested in land for sale.
