    My name is Hannah. I am twenty years old and have been extremely passionate about sustainable farming since I can remember. I didn't grow up on a farm, so when I graduated high school I found a farm to work on in Colorado for the summers.

I am almost finished with my degree in sustainable food production at the University of Nebraska and plan to gain as much experience I can before school is over.

    During my freshman year of high school, I already knew my career path. I was going to be a farmer. Somehow, someway, I was going to make it work. While driving down the road, sitting in the seat of my Farmall H, I thought to myself, how can I do this during and after high school? I envisioned working at a farm and then, someday, owning my own. I would have to learn to manage money and how to farm productively. I would need to be hard working, responsible, and determined. I thought to myself, “I can do this!” So, I started my endeavor. I got a job at a local farm. I was only fourteen, but they took a chance on me anyway. Castle Hill Farm in Newtown, CT is my home away from home. There, I learn the ins and outs of farming. From planting corn in the spring, harvesting hay in the summer, selling pumpkins in the fall, and cutting Christmas trees in the winter. I deal with customers, help with ordering, operate all of the farm equipment, and take care of many types of animals. I am learning about cattle management with both beef and dairy animals, and spend many hours during the winter clearing land and creating new pasture for the herd. Lastly, I am becoming an accomplished mechanic and work on many different types of agricultural equipment and tractors.

Whatever profit is generated is yours if you let me live there for a year. My goal is 200k. I am not picky about the living situation.

We are currently farming in northern California, but plan to relocate to the northeast, where our family is located, as soon as possible.

    I've worked on two farms for two years and then leaped into starting my own farming operation and I just completed my third year! This year I had an 83 member CSA and two farmers markets where I sold vegetables, eggs, and some meat as well (ducks, chickens, turkeys). After leasing land and running my business, I am now ready to take the next step and buy a property with the support of family members to explore and fight for my vision - a farm and a retreat center that works to empower people through their deep connection to land, food, and community! Quite an undertaking, but we seem to have the support and interest of a lot of people. As such, I'm looking for a 40+ acre property (big enough where there are areas in the property where you can have solitude and not see adjacent houses or hear highways), with at least 10 tillable acres, 10 acres of pasture, some woods, and a body of water is ideal. We are also looking for a property that has at least one house (although two houses or one house with an in-law is ideal) as well as at least one barn. Also, we are looking for a property that is less than a two hour drive from the Boston and Providence metropolitan area. I follow organic cultivation practices.

Have been growing all my life in some capacity, interested in trying to transition away from my current job in Tech to make Farming a full-time career.

  • 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.

    I am a 35 year old mother of two, a 12 year old and a 2 year old.  We are trying to live as sustainably as we can, utilizing numerous gardening techniques, collecting rainwater, composting and such. My daughter and I worked a few summers on a horse farm in a neighboring community.  We all possess a great passion for farm life and I have wanted to raise my family in that environment for as long as I can remember. I'm looking for a small farm or homestead property to relocate my family. It's time to get my kids out of the city and back to the land. We have been raising a few chickens and turkeys but I would love the opportunity to get them to a place were we can teach them the skills that so often get passed over in favor of technology nowadays.  A minimum of 2 acres with a small house. Looking more for a handyman special or even a long forgotten place that needs some love. We are very handy, very motivated and very quick learners who are just looking for a chance, not even for us, but for our kids. We work best as a family unit and I can not think of another thing that we could be as happily doing as a family as this. Thank you to anyone who reads this.

We are moving to be closer to family and hope to acquire acreage suitable for branching out into other livestock as well. We currently manage our property according to organic practices.

    I'd love to find a place where I can bring my horses to provide a more natural way of living. Once established, opening the facility up to a low-key 4H program to provide a safe and effective way where kids can learn more about horses and possibly other farm animals. I'd love to help rescue some of these farm animals from auction or slaughter or that may have come from a hard life. Some acreage is needed with shelter. I'd love to see what's out there to make this opportunity happen.

    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.

    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

Would love an owner financed sale, employment with transfer to ownership, or partnership, but will also consider other options. Will consider any offer on any size farm. My passion is farming and I want to make a change now to resume my career.

    I have been running my own organic farm for the past 5 years. Every two years the land seems to get sold from the drastic improvements.  I mainly grow strawberry husk tomatoes, and would like to commit to a five year lease so I can truly reap the benefits of the nutrients I put into the soil and progress with perma-culture. I also have experience in leather work, metal work, stone masonry, carpentry, landscaping, edible stroll gardens, agro tourism, and as a chef.

    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.
