Description of tenure options desired:
We are a small family looking to help landowners/farmers with their agricultural needs in exchange for us to fulfill our farming interests as aspiring farmers as this would be a first for us and our family. We love nature, animals and living organic. We would only want to work with those who support Organic standards and can be open to using such standards for the health and quality of farm production towards the community as well. We are looking to lease short or long term depending on the landowner requirements, Lease to Own (with long term leasing), partnering with those with similar values and standards. We would only be able to do limited farm management for those with larger acreage of land and livestock. Housing would be great if it is provided as soon as leasing starts or if landowner is open to build on his or her property at some point soon after. Thank you for your consideration in advance. Let's work together and take care of our creator's farmland oasis!
Will this farmer's operation qualify an eligible landowner for an Agricultural Assessment?Maybe
