My short-term goal is to farm enough acreage that can help sustain my family and satisfy my desire to farm. My long term goal is to be able to buy a large scale amount of land. To achieve these goals, I will continue to seek out opportunities to locate more acreage, reach out to prospective sellers/renters, and advertise my willingness to farm more acreage. I will continue to maintain and keep equipment in satisfactory working condition in order to continue searching for more acreage without worry of being capable of the addition of that acreage. I hope in the next 10 years that I can be successfully farming a total of 200-300 acres. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
