Past and present farming experience:

I have been growing things my whole life, both for a living and for food and fun. Established and managed a 7 acre farm for 3 years for a celebrity chef to supply his 8 restaurants. I like to grow everything food related - mushrooms, giant pumpkins, tree fruits, garlic, you name it. I’ve always grown organically but never owned my own farm

Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

I envision creating a diversified fruit and vegetable farm with some poultry and goats in rotation to increase soil fertility. If the potential is there, I’d like to explore teaming up with other farms in the area to create a distribution hub for delivering farm products to restaurants and markets in the most profitable way for the farmers
