Other details: We're looking for a farmer/farm couple with expertise in any of vegetables, berries, fruit, mushrooms, medicinal herbs and/or livestock to help re-establish our farm, preferably using permaculture principles, on a 150-year-old former dairy farm. Of its 200 acres, 50 are pasture/meadow and most of the rest id forest.

There is plenty of water, sun and worms. The barn is no more. The land is organic (unofficially). We would like to develop a relationship beginning with rent or lease, leading to some kind of cooperative arrangement.

This is a unique opportunity to establish an operation from scratch. If interested, please call to discuss and send a resume/letter to the e-mail address above.
