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.

Currently I work for Double L construction and Cascade Ridge Community Association as a handy man and construction support. Maintaining landscape, heavy equipment, homes, and supporting the subcontractors whenever needed. I grew up farming around 2,000 acres in Eastern Colorado where the land is quite dry but we made a go of it and I have definitely learned to adapt and be innovative. We mostly grew wheat and millet on a conventional till operation. To be clear it was mostly my brothers and I who actually did the farming and when one would graduate high school and eventually move on greater responsibility would naturally pass to the next one.

Farming Practices

Conventional

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

Let me begin by saying that there are some farming practices that are not healthy for the land and it can become stripped of nutrients. As a farmer I love the land and want to care for it by adjusting my farming practices to fit the land. I am looking for mostly arable land on which to grow hay and grain with limited livestock.

If you are interested in another type of business arrangement, please explain

I am simply open to suggestions.

Onsite Housing
