Please summarize your long-term goals regarding your land:I would like to have 1 to 4 ag folks use the land, and in regenerative / organic / sustainable ways. I am not a farmer (cannot mentor), but this is great land and five minutes to downtown Bozeman. I run summer programs for teens, who will also be available to help work the ag activities (at no cost).
I would like to get market rate for the land and am happy to do long-term leases. Tenants will need to have their own expertise and equipment, though I have an old barn that might have some utility.
