We make our own timber frame buildings, sheds, chicken coops etc. also have a Woodmizer sawmill, plus a Wood Doctor wood furnace that heats our house and hot water. I am the bush hog lady, but I also work the fields but we are a small operation, but with over 600 tomato plants, out right now, field corn, sweet corn and the produce we are busy. We want to get back closer to home in VT and CT, with family, friends out of the crazy world of DC traffic. Right now we have 11 1/2 acres half mature trees, and the rest is tillable land, 1 1/2 acres at the house where the 600 tomatoes are. Also have 100 chickens, did have Seb. geese, two dogs..guineas...life is good in God's country. Life is what you make it as you never have a dull day on the farm.

  • 17-0684:  Seeking 5 acres anywhere in Connecticut to Lease with option to buy, to buy, Partnership, or other arrangements
    I am an aspiring farmer that is beginning to look at land options. I studied sustainable agriculture in college and am interested in small-scale intensive, organic vegetable production. I am inspired by and have studied with John-Martin Fortier who wrote the popular book The Market Gardener: A Successful Grower's Handbook for Small-Scale Organic Farming. Fortier's model is compelling because its low start up costs and high productivity make it very profitable. Fortier's model utilizes dense crop plantings, reduced tillage techniques, and a two-wheeled walk behind tractor to minimize costs and maximize production. I would like to develop my own farming model that is similarly profitable and ecologically sustainable. I plan to apprentice with innovative farmers such as John-Martin before transitioning into land ownership. I need access to 1-5 acres of arable land with room for additional infrastructure such as a washroom and refrigeration unit. I would like to farm within a 1 hour drive of an urban center. I am also passionate about social justice issues and would like to start a farm that is deeply engaged in the community.

    Long time gardener, novice farmer, looking to change lifestyle and profession (eventually.) I'm looking for a new property in New Haven County to take stewardship of, buying outright or making arrangement to work the land with hopes of eventual purchase.

I'm hoping to plant a permaculture orchard and grow annuals while it takes root, and raise layer chickens, honey bees, potentially goats and more in the long term.

  • 17-0649:  Seeking at least 3 acres anywhere in Connecticut for lease or option
    I moved from Pennsylvania to New Milford, Connecticut in November and have been renting land on a dairy farm with a house, barn, and a large walk through chicken coop on 3+ acres, but the landlord does not want it to be used as a fully operational farm. I was made aware of this after we began preparing for planting in the spring and have been asked to get rid of our livestock which currently only consist of laying chickens, and 3 miniature meat pigs. We have also been asked to not plant our corn, sunflowers, pumpkin, and other vegetables or use equipment on the property. I farmed for 10 years in Pennsylvania and am anxious to get back to work full-time. I would appreciate any help with finding land with a house as soon as possible.

    I am a Montessori Teacher, specializing in children ages 3 - kindergarten. I have owned and operated a Montessori school for 12 years. During the summer months, I'd offer a farm camp, which became overwhelmingly popular. I have since closed my school, and contract out privately to families, as I plan the next step in my career path. My husband is a Dairy Farmer/Landscaper. We are looking for a farm, where I can continue with my Montessori school program. The children (I'm thinking of a small group of 10), will learn the required academics during the morning hours, and then learn through "hands-on" experiences on the farm during the afternoons. We are hoping to find a farm that is already set up for dairy. If not, we would like to have the opportunity to include dairy, as it works for all involved. During the summer months, the school will be closed, and I would like to focus on a farm store, hopefully located on the farm as well. We are hoping to find a lease, or a lease with the option to buy scenario. We are open in regards to location. I am very happy to discuss further and to share my credentials.

    I've been a long-time organic dairy farmer - moving in and out of the lifestyle over the years. I became hooked on dairy cows as a child on my Grandfathers dairy in Oklahoma. I've recently become excited by organic vegetable production, inspired by the work of Elliot Coleman and Curtis Stone. I will always have a soft place in my heart for milk cows and such, and would like to include them in the mix if I come up with a place with enough land base. So I'm looking for a place to start a little farming operation of my own or partnering with someone else. I have a wide range of interests in relation to farming: produce, berries, orchard, dairy etc. And have varying amounts of exposure and experience with them. I've been driving a truck for the last few years, planning to get back to farming. I just learned that my fiance and I have a surprise coming in 9 months(a late in life surprise for me) so I need to find a way to be home every day and build a life that we would want to raise a child in. I believe in organics as a starting point - and suspect that there might be much more to bio-dynamics and other holistic practices that we can imagine. Would be excited about building a tiny house if housing is not otherwise available. I'm looking for a place to start a market garden specializing in high turn over/high value crops like leafy greens, lettuce, cherry tomotoes and micro greens. I would use a lot of season extending/enhancing structures like mobile greenhouses and row tunnels. I feel like no-till is the future of market farming. I don't feel like I have to have animals on the farm per se. We would like to have a milk cow or a couple of goats if it would work out, or I would be open to managing someones herd. If I came up with a land base that needed grazing animals to properly utilize the land I would be interested developing them as land/resource improvement venture - turning roughages into compost for example. In the beginning I would stay away from the CSA model. I would look at farmers markets and home delivery of orders. I also have a concept of a food truck on the streets offering juiced produce and mixed salads. I think one could market much of a farms production this way and create enthusiasm for home orders.

    We are a couple looking for a place to park our Tiny House on Wheels. We have been living in it since April 2017. The Tiny House on Wheels is 8.5 ft x 20 ft so it doesn't take up a lot of space. The house is off grid for the most part, we have solar and a composting toilet but would need access to water.  We are looking for a space that is accessible all year round. The spot we are currently parked will not be accessible come winter so ideally, we would move into our new space in Fall 2017. Anna is a Sonographer (ultrasound technician) and J.D. works at an Organic Farm. We have been married since June 2016.  We are willing to trade any combination of work and/or financial compensation depending on the arrangement worked out together. We are open to any number of arrangements, just reach out and let us know what you're looking for. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Anna & J.D.

    Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Lisa. My husband has farmed his entire life, and had owned and operated a dairy farm for several years. I am an internationally certified Montessori Teacher, specializing in children ages 3 - kindergarten. We currently have a hobby farm, with ducks, hens, rabbits, and a mini pig, to name a few. We are seeking a farm to include dairy, as well as a few miniature horses. While we would prefer to reside on the farm, I would like to have an additional small building, with heat and electric, for a small Montessori Farm School. The children could learn both academically as well as agriculturally, through hands on experiences on the farm. (Collecting eggs, gardening, feeding and caring for animals, etc.) My husband would like to continue with dairy, or at least raise show heifers for sale on our farm. We both enjoy gardening, which would also provide learning opportunities for children. Additionally, I am very interested in having a farm stand/country store. We welcome the opportunity to meet in hopes to discuss further and share credentials.

    We are a small family with old fashioned values seeking to establish ourselves a family farm. We are interested in a little bit of everything and very willing to take suggestions, or work with an experienced farmer who might be looking to partner up. I enjoy growing, and would like to grow on a larger scale but I am also interested in learning more about livestock. My husband can do just about anything well. He is currently a master diesel mechanic/operator which I imagine comes in handy on a farm. He really can do anything and makes himself indispensable anywhere he
    goes. This has been a goal of ours for a while but are struggling to find land which suits or needs via standard real
    estate resources. If you think we might be able to fit your needs and are interested in learning more who we are and what we offer please contact me.

    I am interested in organic, sustainable, and biodynamic farming. The farm I currently run has goats, alpaca, chickens and ducks. I run my farm to be as self-sustaining as possible, utilizing composting methods with our kitchen scraps, leaves and manure to enrich the soil. Right now my garden layout consists of a couple acres of small beds which works with my use of companion planning but I would also like to work with larger scale farming. I am open to working with any type of livestock or gardening method in hopes of expanding my skill set as a farmer.

    I have spent the past almost 2 years now WWOOFing in France (and becoming a certified baker), learning about organic agriculture. I have spent a great deal of time working with farmer-bakers, individuals who grow their own grains, process them into flour and make bread. This has inspired my own project, as I see that this sort of vocation could fit well into the Northeast, where there is a reviving interest in local grains (e.g. Regional Grains Project sponsored by Greenmarket NYC). But I've also learned a great deal about raising chickens and market-gardening, and would certainly incorporate those into my project.

    Hello, I am in my late 20's and have recently developed an interest in raising/breeding Heritage Breed Poultry. I already own well bred stock of multiple breeds; however, the setup I have is in its infancy and I am looking to expand. To expand and grow my breeding plan for Heritage Poultry I need land, between 5 to 10 acres would be sufficient. I am looking to live on the property and therefore would need a farmhouse to live in as well. I have over 15 years in animal care experience and have made terrific contacts/networking with other poultry breeders all over CT. I currently have a full-time job in animal care and therefore would be looking to grow in the Poultry Breeding business part-time at first, and eventually possibly full-time. I am very determined to grow my plans for breeding Heritage Poultry and have the knowledge, education, passion, and drive to do so, I just need the right property/opportunity.

The residence would be rented to a farmer who can help care for the farm. My son built a chicken coop and raised 10 chickens for about 2 years until he went off to college.

Lets partner together or come to an agreement on usage of 5 acres to help me create this concept.
