Additional Information

Description

I'm hoping to find a farmer who wants 10 or so acres of land for raising vegetables, or for some pasture land. Some of the orchards are also available to lease out, for those who are interested in doing orchard care and cropping portions of the apple and peach orchards.

The ideal match would be someone who is also interested in paid work 6-8 days/month helping out with mowing the property, in addition to their own farming. This arrangement would be separate from rental payments, and would not be a barter, but a separate paid gig.

I currently run PYO fruit at this farm, check out my website www.phoenixfruitfarm.com
