I am currently working for the state of MT going on 3 years now. I've grown food not as an occupation but for our family over the years. Also keeping hens, and briefly meat rabbits. I've been researching, reading, and growing more anxious to start doing what I love so much as a full-time occupation.

Farming Practices

Organic

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

A vegetable and flower market garden. No tractor, no till, using regenerative agriculture practices on permanent beds, organic. 2 to 5 acres. I aim to create a winter farmers market for the community, and winter CSA. Utilizing high tunnels and hoop houses to extend the growing season. To patriciate in the farms surrounding community donating to food banks, starting a food pantry for those in need. Opening a farm store selling tools, books, seeds compost etc. Creating a space for neurodiverse families who might want to consider farming as a viable occupation. Becoming a market farm and a staple in the community where people can be inspired to grow their own food at home on even smaller plots in the front yard or on a patio.

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

Investing in the soil is the foundation of growing good food. Ideally, we aim to purchase property, or lease with an option to purchase it in the future. Since it takes time build up soil health. We hope to start and stay on that soil.
