Farming Status and Plans

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

Organic farmer looking for an opportunity in the Hudson Valley to pursue one of two ventures:

a. find property that could be purchased to grow organic vegetables and other produce 

b. find an organic farmer who already owns land that wants to have a partner to invest in their business

The property that would be bought, has to be treated organically. Not necessarily certified, but the previous owner would have had to follow organic practices. Looking for 4-20 acres. Ideally on the smaller side. Infrastructure is not a requirement for a good property with good location.
