Description of farming experience

I've been around farms all my life. As a teacher by trade I love passing on knowledge and experiences. Most recently I've run a beef operation with my immediate family, haying with my aunt and uncle and farm management work at a local nonprofit. I focus on regenerative agriculture with cows and chickens, as well as helping others learn the joys and benefits of such farming.

  • Something else

Arrangement description

I've not seen a lot of success with multiple persons involved and appreciate a clear line of management or control over the property and operations. Openness to new ideas is much appreciated with a commitment to quality, sustainability and education. I also appreciate a farm to table approach of good quality food.

Planned farming practices

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

Farming practices description

The official organic process seems onerous and not necessarily always achieving it's intent. Organic and regenerative practices seem to be much more telling in terms of the quality of the operation, product and it's effect on the environment. I would only want to be involved in sustainable and regenerative agriculture.

Planned farming enterprises

  • Agroforestry
  • Hay
  • Livestock

Farming enterprises description

I've found the most success working with livestock and producing hay and merging efforts with the forests around the property. I enjoy working with and maintaining equipment as well as building relationships with neighbors, farmers, vendors and the community.

Infrastructure needed

  • Farm buildings
  • Housing
  • Livestock shelter/housing

Description of infrastructure needed

At minimum basic equipment and animal shelter would be needed, as well as housing. I enjoy working with older building and machinery and would be able to help with restoration or renovation.

Business planning description

I've had extensive experience in planning and executing businesses through personal endeavors as well as service on a variety of nonprofits in a financial capacity. My goal would be to help an existing operation continue and grow in it's outreach or to maintain a small scale operation of my own.

Additional Information

Over the course of my life I've working a variety of fields including education, finance and mental health.  The most satisfying has been work with land and animals.  It is my hope to combine these experiences into an enjoyable retirement avocation.
