Description

I began my interest in farming as a young child, working the orchard that my grandparents had in California. As I grew, so did my love of hard work, being out on the land, and raising food. For many years, my interest was limited to edible plants grown in a garden. In the last 3 years, I expanded into owning livestock and starting a small backyard farm. However, having a backyard farm in a historic district has been a challenge, to say the least. And my ambitions far exceed what the town would permit. 

In my ideal situation, I would have a mix of livestock animals, crops, and orchards that focus on interplanting and other ecosystem-supporting practices. Ideally, I would be able to open this property to those in the public who are interested in learning how to grow their own foods and/or connecting with other sustainable farmers.
