We have 11 acres that we are building a small family agrihood. We have set aside about 2 acres for the use of gardening. We have one farmer and are looking for a second. The first farmer is using half of the area and would like to find a second one. There will be a community center that will be built out of a reclaimed barn that could be used for cooking and craft lessons. There also will be a workshop from a smaller reclaimed barn and an area that can be used for tool storage. Excited about colaborating with someone that is looking to start a market garden and we would like to help by offering land at a very low cost. We want this to be organic and only safe products used. We are very flexible on our arrangements and will work with the right people for success of all.
