Past and present farming experience:

I am a disabled Navy SEAL Veteran. As a young boy I grew up on a farm working alongside my grandfather. My passions/interests include gentling & caring for horses, herb gardening, fruit trees or other viable crop and bees.  My life these days are dedicated to “Servant Leadership”, working with fellow veterans and others in need by offering emotional, spiritual and environmental wellness; including "Forest Therapy Immersion”. 

Inviting those in need to immerse themselves in the farm/nature environment turns their attention away from feelings of stress, anxiety and even depression and instead gives them trust, hope and purpose while connecting to the land & nature.
 
I seek a small piece of land in the York County area (but I am flexible to other possible counties) to start and if there is a water source (stream, brook or pond) that would be extremely beneficial. A semi-retired farmer, farmer in partnership or a veteran farmer would be ideal.
