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 In the small orchard and farm business since 2016. I was hired by a local golf course to maintain their cherry orchard. After completing a summer there, I found a local heirloom orchard and immersed myself in the knowledge from the owner in a informal apprenticeship. I then began my own small farming operation at home. I ran my own small farm/orchard in the coeur d' alene idaho area for two years. Unfortunately I was unable to stay in the home i was farming in and had to move. I was unable to find anything to rent in the area after that. I have currently changed my occupation to be able to hopefully afford a new farming operation one day. I am looking for an opportunity to buy/lease/inherit a farm or orchard that just needs some fresh blood. Especially an established orchard where the owners would love to find someone who will carry on their dream.
