Description

I currently grow and sell vegetables and handcrafts on a very small scale. My main focus for the past 5 years has been to learn more about farming crops as sustainably and automated as possible. Currently, I use only a greenhouse due to lack of land. Over the last 3 years I have also been working with various longtime farmers and greenhouse growers to learn what can not be taught in books. 

My background is not in farming. I was a process server for 25 years as an independent contractor. Problem solving was a large part of daily life. Before that career I had worked my way from receptionist and laborer to project manager for a large construction company. During the Foxwood's and Mohegun Sun Casino projects I was responsible for over 300 workers.

While growing up I spent much of my time with my father and grandfather learning to fix cars and build houses. 

Along with the ability to build and maintain buildings, I have a strong will, an aptitude for engineering, and a good grasp of common sense.

My family is ready to become full time farmers and I believe I can build a multi-generation business in farming.

Thank you for your time and consideration 🙂
