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 currently am a farmer on five acres in Hawaii, my current lease is looking to sell and I am looking for a new location with access to plenty of customers and a secure ag lease. I am a hard worker and interested in expanding my chicken operation to eventually include grass-fed lamb and beef. I am a hard worker and keep to myself. Looking for land to lease and someone who wants to let me take the reigns and have a hands-off approach to leasing. I am interested in eventually becoming organic certified and I follow regenerative methods such as no-till, and intensive rotational grazing.

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

I plan on expanding my chicken operation as well as possibly pastured pork and beef or lamb and beef.

Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.

I follow a Joel Salatin-esque rotational grazing style where I house my broiler chickens in mobile coops and rotate them over new pasture daily, I plan on expanding to a multi-species grazing model where the chicken coops follow cattle and neutralize the manure. Looking into raising dexter cattle, as they work well for beef shares/direct-to-customer cuts.

Please elaborate on the kind of additional training/information that would help you:

I don't think I need much additional training, I already have a solid model that works but will need to be adjusted to work with the Montana climate/weather. Hoping to network with some other farmers though to get advice on markets and customer base in the area.
