    I have always loved Farming as a Child due to the Kitchen Garden that my Dad, Siblings and myself cultivated. As a child it fascinated me that from stony seed you can have such wonderful fruits or big leafy vegetables and since we weren’t wealthy, our kitchen garden kept us from starving. It’s no surprise that I decided to study Agriculture Science;doing 2 years in College and 4years at University! I did 132 credits in Agriculture Science Courses in subjects ranging from Botany, Crop Production, Animal Husbandry, Plant Pathology, Entomology etc. Some people may think that Farming is limited and don’t give the respect that is due but I have Managed Greenhouses before and when you show them the profits that can be had from these endeavors, they are surprise in most cases because it more than what they earn. I love working with Mother Earth and Mother Nature, forever my heart is into Agriculture. We feed families and Nations; it’s an honorable profession.

    While I am not a Military Veteran, my husband, who would be helping me in this farm venture, is. At this point in time, we are looking for small plots of land suitable for either vegetable growing or a small poultry operation. We have a mini farm at our own property, but are interested in expanding to bigger crops. We both know how to drive/operate a farm tractor, but do not own one at this time. My husband has 5 years of farming experience behind him, and I am going into my fifth year this season. While I have begun a business plan, I am unsure how to work out the particulars of expected income from vegetables, given how many variables are included in that calculation. We would, in this case, be happy with as little as a half acre of land if necessary to begin expanding our current venture. We have lots of experience and knowledge, but very little in the way of start,up money or equipment. Therefore we are only seeking something that can be worked part time, while we build it up and work our other jobs as well. With a 3 acre property, we would be interested in rent,to,own, especially if there was any equipment that came in the mix. We would also be happy to crop share.

  • 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.
