Description:We are a married couple who have been full-time organic farmers since 1997 and are seeking a long-term land opportunity to move our farm operation onto. We have an established certified organic contract-seed production farm business that produces specialty crop seed, on a wide range of crops, for several national retailers. The land we currently lease is not available for lease past 2020 and we are looking for a new long-term location to move our farm operation onto.
We are hoping to find 15-25 open acres of quality soil with ample irrigation water, ideally with utilities, storage structures and potentially a home. We are open to a variety of arrangements from outright sale to long-term lease.
We have a strong land stewardship ethic and strive to improve the soils and ecology of the farm using cover crops, insectaries, hedgerows and crop rotation. We have also been farm educators for many years and have trained many new farmers. Finally, we understand the business of farming and are consistently seeking a balanced triple bottom line in the forms of economic, social and ecological profitability.
Our long-term plans include to continue developing our organic seed production business with an emphasis on quality seed, excellent land stewardship, profitability, and happy employees. At one point we may consider diversifying into livestock or other crops. We are hoping to find farmland that we can own or lease for at least 20 years so that we do not need to move the farm business again.
