Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.

I plan on running a small-scale mixed vegetable farm on five acres of land the first year. As the operation continues to grow, I plan on expanding into small and large livestock, hay, forage, grain and fruit/orchard production. The farm principles are based on environmentally sound, socially just, and economically viable principles. By implementing practices characterized by cover crops, crop rotations, minimal soil disturbance, and permanent cover of the soil, the fertility of the land will grow. I plan on designing the system with resilient agroecological techniques that produce ecosystem services which improve soil fertility, water-holding capacity, and biomass production, reduce pests and diseases, and attract beneficial insects.
