General Information:
Lease/Partnership/Community - We have a nice 50 acre property with various options for pasturage, gardening, small livestock and forestry. We are a mature, ethical, considerate, environmentally inclined couple looking to put the land to good use and help sustain the cost of maintaining the house and the property. We are open to various possibilities FOR THE RIGHT PERSON(S) including short or long-term "live-on lease of land" for agricultural endeavors and possibly leading to partnership and/or land ownership. Our expertise is in marketing, business management, research, PR and planning and we are willing to help/mentor in those areas. We do NOT have any agricultural experience beyond basic gardening, but we have done a lot of research. Given our soil, location, elevation and terrain, and based on our own research, we believe the property would be a good place for milk or meat goats, poultry, rabbits, short season ground crops and wood.
