Please summarize your long-term goals regarding your land:This property has been dormant since the mid 1990's. My husband and I recently purchased it with visions of it becoming useful and productive with the connection to some passionate person(s) with the desire to awaken the ground. We have 2-3 acres to rent or trade; open to work out details of its use. In addition, there is a foundation (the remains of a house which burnt down in 1994) that could become a greenhouse with some transformational work; open to discuss other possibilities. There is no living quarters on the property. We are excited to discover the Farm Link Land site and open to healthy communication and discussion about this properties future.
Our Goals: put the land in production w/fruits/veggies, maintain good communication with the prospective land seeker, go organic, open to the possibility of small animals.
