Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Not currently farming
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
I am a beginner with big ideas and goals. I enjoy beekeeping and farming chickens, and would love to scale up my backyard operation into something with some teeth. Ideally, this would lead into niche restaraunt supply and other direct customer sales from farmer's markets.
Description of marketing method:
Not yet required due to small scale. Word of mouth has consistently sold all of my produced goods. I have numerous connections to the restaurant industry with access to some high-end NY and Boston locations.
Does this farmer have a business plan?In progress
Preferred location:Southeast, Orange, Rockland
Desired acreage:1-5, 6-10, 11-20, 21-50, 51-100, >100
Crops and Livestock
Primary Livestock:Pigs, Poultry, Other livestock
Description of livestock/crops:
Currently my flock is 25 chickens of various breeds, and 6 bee colonies.
Future plans (if allowed) would include a small number of pigs, sheep, and vermiposting.
Tenure options desired:Farm Management, For Lease, Partnership, Other Tenure Agreement
Description of tenure options desired:
Dependant upon amount of acreage, scale of responsibility, etc. This is better discussed on a case by case basis.
I am not against anyone's right to make a profit from goods/services, but you must also respect mine.
Will this farmer's operation qualify an eligible landowner for an Agricultural Assessment?Maybe
I am a small scale (backyard) farmer that has approximately 1/2 acre to currently work on. I have had extensive gardening experience in my area, (with modest harvests) and over the past year have expanded into Beekeeping and chickenkeeping.
