Past and present farming experience:

Though my wife and I do not have production farming experience, we have for years practiced permaculture and regenerative framing techniques on our own land. We have extensive experience in the food industry, sustainable/ecological design, and distribution logistics. We have direct experience raising poultry and goats, small scale food & herb crops, and years in horse care. Our goal is to take our experience to the next level to expand into a large-scale working farm. We intend to combine our permaculture experience with regenerative agriculture and agro-forestry techniques to establish a highly diversified farm with supporting educational programming.

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

We are aiming to build a diversified large scale regenerative farm with multiple production streams. Our intention would be to design any necessary upgrades based on the innate nature of the existing farm, in line with the local ecology, traditions, and climate. We want to protect and conserve the land for future generations (hopefully ours), so we are very supportive of easements. Our grand vision is for the farm to help stimulate the local economy and act as a hub and gathering space for the surrounding community. We hope to integrate the following components:

- heirloom vegetables and medicinal herbs
- fruit orchard
- livestock: beef, goats, poultry, and pigs
- sap production
- retail / CSA on-property
- permaculture and regenerative farming education program
- renewable energy production
