Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.We're considering a number of crops, from garlic and medicinal herbs, to hemp for oil. We'd also like to include chickens or pigs to help consume waste and produce compostable manure. What we choose to grow will be dependent on our market research as well as the size the property we're able to work.
We'd prefer to supply intermediary or wholesale markets, rather than direct consumer markets.
