Farmer Seeking Land 6074 (updated)

A Nonprofit Forest Farm: A Project for Permaculture and Peace.

My family (spouse and 3 kids) is looking for a farm (5 to 10 acres or more) to purchase or lease (long-term preferred) in Montgomery/Fredrick/ and/or surrounding counties. We have had over 10 years of farming experience. Our plan is to create a Forest Farm based on the principles of regenerative ecology, permaculture, and peace. We will grow herbs, mushrooms, and some fruit bushes such as blueberries naturally (with no or less tilling) and probably offer agrofarm, ecological and peace education programs. We also plan to raise a few animals, such as chickens/ducks/goats and keep bees. Our preference would be the land with access to water, electricity, and some portion of woods and alleviation. However, we are open to discuss any other similar opportunities.

Farmer Seeking Land 7036
GotYourSix is a service disabled veteran woman owned hyper-local urban farm. We differ from many other urban farms (like indoor warehouse farms, urban greenhouses, rooftop farms, and small plots of land transformed into farms) by providing year round consistent access to high quality table crops such as lettuce blends, herbs, and flowers. GY6 firmly believes our farming method provides the best combination of protection from natural elements, cost effective production, and reliable crop yields that will make urban farming a profitable venture now and into the future.

We are Army veterans with 10+ years of experience and grew up around farming our whole life. Our farm will support our local community, our veteran brothers and sisters, and will help ensure access to affordable crops year round locally. We are looking for any size acreage to support our dream, veterans, church and community. Partnership, shared space, multifamily farming or any idea is worth a discussion.

Matched! 7035 Farmer Seeking Land
I am an aspiring farmer looking to further develop my personal relationship to land management. I’m looking to start out with 1/4 acre of land to grow medicinal and culinary herbs for tea blends. This is a continuation of a project I established at the previous farm where I worked. Access to water is preferable, and space to create a drying station for herbs would be helpful, but not necessary.

I have 2 years of experience working full seasons on farms along with previous experience working on urban gardens and my partner, who plans to assist me with this project, has 6 years of farming experience with several years in management positions.

This is something I’m looking to move slowly into and further develop my plans as I deepen my relationship with the plants and the land, and gain a better understanding of what capacity there is for this project.

The hope is to create a sustainable system that includes selling veggies, herbs, and herbal products along with being able to provide a portion to local food banks, community fridges, and mutual aid projects around the DMV
