We are raising laying hens and an organic garden in our small rental space in town and am looking to begin a small sustainable farming operation near town. I have experience running a large variety of equipment and farm type implements and have vast experience in the outdoors. Hoping to maybe also begin a small farm to table operation.

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

I hope to begin a smaller farm type operation that is low impact and potentially on the organic side. Ultimately I would like to use alternative energy and self sustaining practices on the farm to reduce our imprint. I am not exactly sure on what crops I would like to grow but something that produces well in this region and is in demand. Maybe grow organic crops to support local resteraunts. I would also like to raise a small number of cattle,pigs, chickens etc.
