    I started at a very young age helping my dad on his farm in Jamaica, which consisted of produce and livestock.

    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. Thank you in advance for your kind consideration.

  • 17-0589:  Seeking acreage anywhere in Connecticut for long-term lease or option to buy 
    I'm 16 and go to school at Nonnewaug high school and am currently attending my junior year. I live in Newtown, CT. It has always been a dream of mine to become a farmer when I grow up. But due to the lack of space I have at home I am only able to have chickens, grow produce, and sell wood. I think I could make a great partner and really make the farm into a profitable business. I have always wanted to raise livestock and crops for profit and have experience in doing so as we have both at school. I am very interested in raising beef or dairy cattle, as well as crops and vegetables to sell at a farm stand or farmers market. I am a very well rounded, honest, and hardworking individual. I am also available before and after school when I get out of work around 6 during most weekdays and most days during the weekend. I plan to farm after high school.

    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.

    I'm an UConn Extension faculty currently teaching Urban Agriculture to urban adult residents in Connecticut. The program is year-round, which includes classroom instruction, organic vegetable production, and entrepreneurship. When participants complete their training, some would like to start their own farming experience. To be able to guide participants through their farming experience, I'm making arrangements with local farmers, public and private organizations, and individuals with access to farmland to secure parcels of land so that participants can engage in food production. Thus far, the UConn Extension Urban Agriculture program has a farm in New Milford and a garden in Stamford.

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.

    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.

We would like also to try to raise a few chicken for eggs and a couple of Sheeps for our own consumption. We would like to rent or lease for a few years and see how it works for us before investing in a farm house.

    I'm open to different areas but basically am looking for a small plot of land to grow organic vegetables in a rural or chemical free area. I'm also interested in chickens for eggs and maple sugaring if they fit the site. I would like to partner with another or other farmers and have a small apartment or share housing. I would like to provide organic food for schools and restaurants as well as direct sales to community members at markets or CSA at an affordable price and eventually maybe be an employer looking to the future and offer field trip education and workshops.

    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.

    We are a retired couple who would like to purchase a smaller farm, approximately 10 acres or less, to pass on to my son who is very interested in farming. I grew up on my grandparents dairy farm in Branford. Additionally they farmed very large leased plots where they grew many fruits and vegetables including strawberries which I picked and were shipped by train to New York each morning.In addition, My uncle's family still owns 14 acres in Branford that was a large dairy farm until he passed away several years ago. My father build the barn, my son has the same building skills. My uncle worked the farm part-time and rented his 2 family house to a farmer who helped to care for the cows. Our plan is to purchase a farm that is, to some extent, ready to start up. We would work it part time. My son would work it on weekends. My son would build an in-law apartment for us to to live in. 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. He owns a house and is growing crops in his back yard. My daughter would also be involved. Beside farming crops we are interested in raising farm animals, chickens, and small live stock. We are flexible but would prefer to stay in Middlesex, New Haven or New London county.

    I am 25 years old and am very interested in farming. I worked on a farm in Nantucket Massachusetts in 2014 and since regretting leaving because I enjoyed it so much. I currently am seeking land to start a vertical farming venture where we would be growing 100% organic fruits and vegetables using a vertical farming system. I understand this may sound disappointing to the traditional farmer or farmland owner. But I am a big believer in this concept as it saves space and resources, giving our local market an abundance of fresh produce. Lets partner together or come to an agreement on usage of 5 acres to help me create this concept.

     Family of 4 with a special needs son looking to raise our children on a small Connecticut farm. My wife and I were born and raised in CT, both with parents of multi-generational farmers. My wife is employed in the medical field with the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, but has worked many years as a Veterinary Technician. Her sister is a practicing Veterinarian. I am a contractor by trade, so fixer-uppers aren't a problem. My dad was raised on a potato farm in Maine, so I inherited a love early in life for farming and most of all, antique farm tractors. I spent many summers visiting my uncles large potato farm in Maine, as well as a relatives large farm in Somers, CT. My wife's love for animals throughout her life, is another reason for our family wanting a farm. We hope to have a couple horses, and possibly other farm animals. Hopefully we will be able to provide a small rescue to some animals. In having a child with developmental disabilities, we feel a life on a farm would be the best gift we could offer him in life. We are currently living in New Hampshire, but will be returning to CT because of job transfer. We have been pre-approved for financing, and looking to get something asap.

    Through a rich background of experience apprenticing on four organic farms, working as a greenhouse manager, and managing an intensive mixed-vegetable farm, I’ve acquired a wide range of techniques and strategies for realizing the vision of an ecological, efficient, profitable and enjoyable farm. I approach the farm as a whole organism, and consider each individual farming practice in terms of its efficiency and value to the entire operation.

  • 16-0355:  Seeking 10+ acres in Hartford, Litchfield counties; Short term lease
    I am interested in leasing land for archery hunting purposes only - not firearms. I do not farm, but would like to lease farm land for spring turkey and fall deer. I have no problem if the land is also leased by a farmer who is farming the land at the same time. Anyone farming the land may appreciate the added deer control. I do not erect permanent hunting stands - they are portable and leave no damage to the trees. I only hunt with my son who is 12 years old and I appreciate very much hearing from a landowner willing to consider my request. We are very respectful of the land, the owner, and the wildlife. I impress upon my son the need to be a respectful sportsman. We will be happy to enter and exit the land as the owner sees fit. Looking for some land that is about 10 acres and up. Can consider smaller plots. Finding private land to hunt in CT is very hard, so I appreciate you considering my request.

    I've been farming full time for three years. I've worked on a different farm each season. I've worked on a small csa based farm, a larger, more commercial high end farm, and a farmer's market based farm. I was the assistant manager at Zephyr farm in Cranston, RI this past season. For me organic farming is a way to do physical work outdoors and a produce a good product people want to buy. It's a chance for me to own my own business and be part of a small community that involves getting to know my customers. I personally think food grown by organic methods tastes much better. I am really interested in composting and soil science, as my undergrad was in biochem. I am a hardworking, motivated person, willing to do whatever it takes to get a new business going. I am ready to own or run my own farm.

    For as long as I can remember, I have always wanted to be a full-time farmer. I have experience raising chickens and ducks for their eggs and meat. I also have experience growing a decent size vegetable garden. My dream is to expand both these operations into a more profitable and gratifying scale. I am a very hard worker who has knowledge in many areas of construction. I have spent over 10 years working as a carpenter, but due to the market crash a few years back, I learned all aspects of construction. I have experience operating excavating equipment and large machinery. I have knowledge in concrete and masonry as well. My true love is wood. I have been reclaiming wood for projects since I was just a boy. I currently salvage barn wood for one of my businesses. Understanding how valuable our trees are is very important. I use wood for fuel, and I also own a small sawmill. I would like to use my mill to produce lumber to be used on the farm. Fences, Barns, Housing, etc, can all be built cheaper with my knowledge and tools. I am interested in producing hops, since one of my brothers is a brewer in NY. I am also interested in larger livestock such as dairy or beef cattle.

Our goal is to build a profitable "grass farm" with a herd of beef cattle which will be the center of our operation. Our existing enterprises will compliment the beef. We are determined that our four young children will grow up on the clean food we raise. This is what drives us.

    We are a young couple seeking land to farm for the 2016 season. We run a small heard of dairy goats and sell raw goats milk. We raise chickens for meat and eggs, and would like to add a small number of pigs to our operation this year. All of our animals are raised on pasture, and we use exclusively organic and humane practices.
    We are looking, ideally, for a piece of land with at least 8 acres of pasture near Sherman, CT. Must have running water available somewhere on site. A barn/shelter would be a huge plus, but if one is not available, we may be able to make it work depending on what you have, and what you'd allow us to bring in (temporarily/for the duration of our lease).
    We are a hardworking team, and are pretty flexible in our requirements. Really just looking for a safe and useable lot for our animals as soon as possible so we can get going with our 2016 season! Please let us know if you have any questions for us, we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

    Young farmer looking to get a place to start sheep business venture. I started raising sheep back in 2011 and currently attend college studying Animal Science with a pre-vet option and an entomology minor. I have taken courses on subjects such as entomology, plant and soil science, and ag economics. I am hoping to expand my small flock onto a piece of land where I can lamb out enough pasture raised animals to start to sell lamb. I am looking to find a plot of land where I can utilize rotational grazing, multispecies grazing, and rotational planting to produce lamb/goat in an environmentally sound manner. I do not need a pasture that is already fenced in, nor does the plot of land need to have a barn. I am looking in a 30 minute radius of Suffield, but may be open to further distances if the plot is right for me. References are available along with business plans.

    I am looking for pasture land, a barn(s), and preferably housing for myself and my horses that will be appropriate for my program.  Horses Healing Hearts. HHH is an Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy Program for at-risk teens and disempowered women.  Eventually as I expand, it will be a healing program for vets and their families. The emphasis of the program is learning to accept and love yourself, developing confidence and self knowledge. Participants have a history of trauma, emotional and physical abuse and as a result are often involved in addictive and self-harming behaviors.  For the past 3 years I have worked out of various barns on a rental basis. As the program has been so successful and more teens and adults want to participate, we are ready to expand into our own location. As Nature is also a big part of the healing process, I am wanting to build a labyrinth for meditative experiences as well as nature walks/trails. I am also hoping to utilize part of the barn for a therapeutic workshop space that will build outreach into the community and school systems, reaching troubled children, before they turn to violence.  My background has been working with troubled kids, empowering woman and men to lead more successful lives, having worked in psychiatric hospitals and private practice. I am well educated with several Masters and a Ph.D. It has been my dream for over 4 years to open a full-time program with horses after noticing the tremendous effect they have on those with emotional issues and past trauma. Their sentient nature and intuitive abilities to mirror emotions is well documented in current research, as well as research I have conducted. Establishing a relationship with a 1000 pound being and learning about oneself is a profound experience on the road to healing.  I am grateful for this opportunity to have a vehicle to match up with others who have the resources I am searching for! I am looking for a short or long term lease depending on the situation. I am also open to leasing to purchase should the possibility present itself. Thank you for reading my summary!

    I began working on farms at the age of eight and did so consistently until the age of 19. Throughout the majority of my 20's I ran a dog daycare in Hartford CT. After this business was sold I began looking for work on farms again, as I realized this is really the work I love. Recently I completed a six month apprenticeship on a small organic vegetable farm and currently I am attending markets for a large conventional vegetable farm near my home.  My long term goal is to own a farm of my own, raise certified organic vegetables, eggs, and possibly livestock. I am open to opportunities which bring me closer to that goal. I worked primarily for horse farms and dairy farms in my youth, and have spent the last 3 growing seasons stacking hay, growing vegetables and selling vegetables. I have the drive, determination, focus and work ethic it takes to succeed as a farmer. I have limited funds however, as most of my recent employment has been farmwork. As a fellow farmer, friend and mentor once said to me "You won't make A LOT of money, but you'll eat really good".
