Farming Experience

Farming experience

11+ years of experience

Type of farming experience

  • Gardening
  • Something else/additional (describe below)

Description of farming experience

I have been involved in organic backyard gardening (fruits & veggies) my whole life. I've been told I have a green thumb and a unique way of communicating with plants and animals to know and understand what they want/need. My family has a multitude of experience across all channels and we plan to combine our skills, as well as learn new ones and engage with other locals to make this happen.

Farming Plans

State(s) of interest

  • New Hampshire
  • Vermont

Minimum acreage desired

50

Arrangements desired

  • Purchase or own
  • Lease-to-own
  • Collective/group tenure

Arrangement description

Considering this would likely involve uprooting some of my family, we're looking to buy land (vs rent), but are open to working with current land owners for a smooth, family-style transition.

Planned farming practices

  • Certified organic
  • Not certified, but follow organic practices
  • Sustainable/regenerative

Farming practices description

I am a strong believer in allowing nature to teach us. Regenerative farming, soil health, and nutrient-dense sustainably-raised products are passions of mine. Ideally I will find a farm that was organic with limited chemicals, full of mature fruit trees, sugar maple, healthy native "weeds," and rich uncontaminated soil. Ideally we'd have animals rotated regularly to fertilize and help allow for new growth.

Planned farming enterprises

  • Agroforestry
  • Cut flowers
  • Hay
  • Livestock
  • Perennials
  • Vegetables

Farming enterprises description

Were interested in creating an environmentally conscious well-rounded farm for generations to come. We plan to include a little of everything, starting with fruits, vegetables, flowers, and chickens and then expanding to other animals/products.

Infrastructure needed

  • Farm buildings
  • Housing
  • Livestock shelter/housing

Description of infrastructure needed

Ideal location would include a house, barn, and garage.

Additional Information

I've always loved nature and strongly believe in the importance of bringing humans back to our roots. My great grandfather had a farm that I always cherished visiting and helping as a kid, and unfortunately we lost his land after his passing. However, my siblings, parents, and grandmother are all looking to bring back this part of our life and I'm determined to make it happen.

We all have good work ethic and have various skills that mesh well together, including that of a landscape architect, accountant, handyman, chef, beekeeper, and even a current apprentice to a regenerative farm. 

If anyone has a family farm that they are no longer running or that they want to pass on to good hands, I'd be honored to be considered to take care of it. Happy to meet or chat with any serious inquiries.
