Seeking land to love

Description:

My partner and I are looking for 3-10 acres to raise poultry and grow produce on to supplement our CSA. We will be farming on an incubator plot at Viva Farms for the 2022 season and would like to lease another piece of property in the area additionally. We are excited to learn as we go and make a contribution to our local food system and community. We will care for your land + provide you with fresh veggies + chicken!

Who I am and What I'm looking for:

My partner and I met working for a company out of Seattle with the mission to help Farmers access as much of their local community as possible, and market themselves to be able to maximize their direct sales. We have learned so much about the business side of Farming, and being a part of the Viva Practicum program this year has further inspired us to take the next step and get involved in more of the actual hands on side of Farming. We are incredibly passionate about our environmental impact, the local food movement, and making it accessible for more people to eat local + healthy food. Our end goal is to be able to own a piece of land and educate people on the importance of farming and open a Farm to Table cafe serving seasonally and local ingredients. In the mean time we are so appreciative of your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.

Farming Experience:

We have worked on a certified organic berry farm and backyard gardened for many years. We have taken and completed a cultivating success course in entrepreneurial agriculture and are currently involved in the 2021 Viva Practicum. We also work in the farming industry selling software to farms to sell their products direct.
