Past and present farming experience:

Aaliyah: I have been doing small scale farming in my backyard for 5 years now (and also have a large green house inside my home.) While I do not have large scale experience, I feel my skills are ready to transfer into a more large net farming scale! However, I am more interested in working with farm animals. My father had chickens for over 20 years. Since I was a toddler, I was outside almost every morning helping him care for our chickens!

PJ: I do not have farming experience but I do have a lot of maintenance experience.

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

1 Year Plan: PJ & I hope to begin our farming journey with a full and detailed tour of the new land. Learning the habits, the normal foot traffic of different wild animals, flood patterns if any, how & where the sun hits best, and such. We also, plan to begin by fixing barns, buying required equipment and preparing for our first plant & harvest season.

5 Year Plan: Learning the dos and don’ts of farming. Trying and failing—learning from said mistake. Starting a farmers stand, meeting and seeing the needs of our local community while seeing where we can improve. Begin buying/raising animals, learning the dos and don’ts of that. LEARNING FROM OTHER FARMERS.

I know we may seem inexperience but we have the initiative to learn.
