Couple Seeking Property to Live and Permaculture

Description:

My girlfriend and I have moved to Fairhaven and have begun searching for a property to steward and apply permaculture style farming practices. Our eventual goal is to have an agricultural education center with multiple dwellings. Ideally, we are looking for a property where the current owners have lived similar truths and are looking to pass along their resource to a younger couple ready to responsibly steward the land and carry on their work.

Who I am and What I'm looking for:

I am a chef turned social entrepreneur and food innovation consultant. I’ve been studying sustainable food systems and social food movements for 20 years and am ready to put my work into the ground. My girlfriend is a user experience designer and researcher who grew up in Washington and has a strong desire to build regenerative systems for local food sovereignty.

Farming Experience:

I have minimal experience gardening and have taken some permaculture programs.

Crops preferred to work with:

Vegetables
Berries
Poultry
Sheep
Cattle
Goats
Hogs
Tree fruit
Grain
Greenhouse crops
Other

Short term plans for the land / farm business:

This all depends on the land and the existing infrastructure.

Housing needs:

Yes
