Young family with farmer and welder seeking land to produce sustainable organic produce, meats, and value added items for market and farmstand sales.
I am a farmworker in Skagit currently working at a large wholesale organic farm. My family and I are looking for a farm to build into our own or take over. We live in a self-converted off-grid school bus. We are interested in using sustainable practices to produce an organic market garden, pastured meats, value added products and farmstead cheeses. My husband is interested in starting his own welding business. He currently welds off-farm and on-farm.
I have been farming for the past 8 years in Colorado, Massachusetts, and Washington. I've mainly worked at vegetable farms, but have 5 years of cheese-making and farmstead dairying experience as well. I also spent a season operating a non-profit educational farm where I started an educational dairy program for a summer camp.
