Additional Information

The farm was started in the 1850's and is truly a magical place....the 35 acres or so was planted with conventional Corn/Soybean for decades. We transitioned it to hay after we bought the farm in 2016, and would like to start transitioning it to Silvopasture/Agroforestry and/or organic vegetables/orchard.  This is in many ways a "blank slate" and we are offering a unique opportunity to partner with us as the farm operations manager.

We will provide:

  • Housing if needed
  • The capital to invest in the farm
  • Annual salary to the right person/partner
  • Potential for transfering land to build your own place, in the future.

Together we will:

  • Design and develop the business plan to make it happen
  • Prove out that with the right model, we can profitably build an organic/silvopasture business model
  • Share in the profit 

You will:

  • Share the similar vision and passion for making it successful
  • Be the day to day operator of the farm and business
  • Committted to the short and long-term success of the farm and the business.
