I am interested in relocating to Ohio as my aging mother lives in Miamisburg. I am interested in working with an experienced farmer wanting to transition into retirement where I can learn details of the area and then start to make my own decisions and start to build equity. I am 48 and qualify as a beginning farmer per FSA programs for down payment and loan assistance. My wife is a registered nurse and also interested in relocating and helping farm as able. Our ideal situation, would include a rural residence.
