Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Full time
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
We own a small property in East Chatham and are interested in renting nearby fields for vegetable production. We are not certified organic but farm according to organic practices - no chemicals, no GMOs, and building soil health through cover cropping, crop rotation, and minimal tillage. Water and electric on site would be a big plus, and we would want to put up fencing and a small storage structure if none existed.

We market through farmers markets, on site at our farm, and through other distribution channels.
