Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.I am an agronomist looking for farming opportunities in Montana. I have professional experience in soil fertility, entomology, organic and conventional production systems. I’ve worked on plant protection in oranges, grapes and berries. I’ve done fertility on all of California’s specialty crops and currently I serve as a senior agronomist who integrates new technologies into large scale farming operations around the world in lettuce, berries, cannabis, soy and tomatoes.

Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.I see my operation being one that grows speciality crops (like vegetables, herbs, flowers and fruit), facilitates research contributions for the local grower network and contributes to community involvement with 4-H and outreach.
Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.I belive there is a niche for all types of farming and one size doesn’t fit all. That said, my ideal farm is organic, sustainable and biodynamic that prioritizes innovation and responsible stewardship of the land.
If you are interested in another type of business arrangement, please explainI am open to collaborations for trade of my agronomy services, am open to training growers or other land seekers.
Ultimately my long term goal is to run, own and or operate a farm while building and contributing to the local farming community and research initiatives.
