I have completed all of the coursework for the master gardener program and am in the process of getting the volunteer hours in as well.

Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running.I aim to run an organic, regenerative agricultural operation. I am interested in maintaining diversity on the property, where each component strengthened another: animals for milk, meat, and fiber as well as all the standard market fruits and vegetables.
In addition to the agricultural production of the property, I also aim to incorporate an educational component through the creation of a folk school where customers can learn about traditional skills.
We are a young family committed to a sustainable agricultural future both for ourselves and for our children. We look forward to working and learning together with you!
