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

the bulk of the farming will be rotational successive permanent raised beds, using primarily hand tools. seeds will be started in greenhouses and moved into beds as soon as able, and utilize hoop houses to prolong the growing season. Soil management will be maintianed by the use of hand tools and biodynamic principals.
