Farming Status and Plans
Farming status:Not currently farming
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
Started an online business and will be incorporating some farming to merge with the business. Most will be indoor farming so will need buildings and greenhouses. And once weather permits some outdoor. Mostly fruits and vegetables. Would love a farm with established orchards.
We do plan to have customers to the farm for seasonal goods so would require a commercial building that is accepting of customers with some storage. We are looking combining all facets to do this on a fulltime year round basis. So would need a home to lease on the property to manage time and chores. Down the line would be incorporating animals but not an immediate need.
