There is full sunshine, good soil and water. The soil can be made better to enhace the outcome of the first and additional crops to produce vegetable, fruit, orchard and or hay and forage for (animals). After

We are seeking one or more individuals with past performance in farming ( vegetable and or animal
raising) to partner ( your skills and capabilities) with our land and water to implement an effective
outcome of growing vegetables and raising some animals.
