Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Not currently farming
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
Sean and his partner have spent a year WOOFing on a bunch of different farms. They are now serious about investing in starting their own farming venture. Their goal is to have an organic CSA. Ideally they would like property that has a house, water, or electric access. However they would be willing to invest in the right property if it lacked these things. They would like to stay in either Dutchess or Ulster county due to having strong ties to that community.
Preferred location:Southeast, Columbia, Dutchess, Ulster
Desired acreage:21-50, 51-100, >100
Infrastructure required:Onsite housing, Water access, Electrical Access
Description of water access required:
They would prefer to find property that have some infrastructure like housing, water, and electrical access, but it is not a deal breaker for the right property.
