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 have been farming for over 7 years now. Started by apprenticing on an 18 acre csa farm and went on to manage csa farms and now my partner and I are running a market garden in Maine. I am also a carpenter during the off season.
Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.My partner and I would like to start a small scale, no till market garden that allows member to sign up for CSA shares. The farm should be close to its members providing a space for the community to connect, receive healthy food each week and learn about growing food through classes. Ideally the farm will be located near farmers market and health food stores. We do not want to be in the middle of no where driving food around. We want to be right where it is needed. Our farm will be small enough to be within close proximity to a populated area. We would also like to do poultry for eggs and meat.
