Lease available with existing CSA. This is an excellent opportunity for a beginning or experienced market gardener. There are already 52 (50’) heavily composted, no-till beds in production and plenty of room for expansion. Existing field blocks are on gentle slope with southwest aspect. Also included are a solid well system with a new pump and a small barn with power and a 6’x6’x8’ walk-in cold room. *An unheated 14’ x 50’ hoop house is also on site.
Also additional pastures and buildings with water and electricity where we would consider small livestock for rotational grazing or chicken tractors. Open to thoughts but priority on health of animals and the environment.
7003 Landowner Seeking Farmer
Land Owner looking for a farmer and business partner.
About the land: Approximately 4 acres, relatively flat, no trees, and currently a giant lawn with the standard mix of turf, crabgrass, and clover. Barn/storage not currently available, but considering building. Plenty of parking available. Regular source of wood chips and leafgro compost (40 yards per year).
About the utilities: Electricity available and water on the property. May need to trench in order to get water supply to the growing areas(s).
Tools: Kubota B-Series tractor with loader, mower, tiller, and hiller attachment. Most carpentry tools (table saw, miter saw, drills, etc.).
About you: Experienced farmer who understands growing table crops, flowers, and/or trees. Background check will be required, drug-free, etc. In short, a self-starter, no drama, and looking to be a business partner. Sales experience both B2B, farm to market, or farm to consumer would be ideal.
About me: I have a full-time “day job”, however, am passionate about producing local, quality food. I am an avid beekeeper and expanding my apiary. This will be part of the business model. I am in the progress of setting up a website which will showcase and sell the grown products, as well as beekeeping and gardening supplies. I will be able to help, but will not be able to put in the standard farmer 40-80 hour weeks.
Business partnership: To be discussed. Ultimately, this farm must be profitable to be sustainable. I also understand that you, as the primary farmer need to pay bills and support your family. Any agreement will be equitable – if both of us aren’t happy, it’s not worth moving forward.
Please note: I am not looking to lease or sell. This land is my personal home for myself and family. Looking for a true business partner who has the expertise, but may not be ready to take loans/risk to start their farming venture. This could be a great opportunity for the person(s). Thank you for the consideration.

1/3 of an acre in Darnestown on a long time organic farm sloping gradually to the north, all terraced, fenced and with water. There is one long permanent growing fence for peas, beans, limas, whatever. Organically for 30 years. This would be an excellent opportunity for people who want to start out learning how to do small scale, intensive, regenerative farming. Participants could “pay” by helping with some work chores in lieu of money payment. I have all appropriate farm equipment, a lot of organic matter that requires only hauling and applying and order a lot of seed.
