Additional Information

I love growing vegetables. Love the feeling of getting stuff done. Love the people enjoying the food. And, not least, I love tractors. 

I have been growing on leased land for 18 years and need to find some larger fields. Looking for 25 acres plus of tillable land to help grow more food! 

We have an established business with an excellent track record. Our CSA members keep on coming back and our wholesale orders are growing.

Can you help us find our forever fields?
