Looking for the following:

Type of opportunity:

More info: Any type of production on land would be fine or even none at all. Chemical and pesticide free would be preferred, as this is the route I would be going.

Current farming practices:

Biodynamic, Conventional, Certified organic, Transitioning to organic, Ecological production but not certified, None, the property is not being farmed.

Personal experience and production goals summary:

I moved my family to Hendersonville NC almost three years ago. We grew an organic garden back in West Virginia for five years before relocating. I'm hoping to find a small piece of land to grow chemical/pesticide free vegetables and culinary/medicinal herbs for your family and mine to split. I'll supply my own seeds, tools, and labor. An on site water supply would be my only requirement. Cover crops and mulch would be incorporated to suppress weeds, decrease water demand, and increase microbial life in the soil. If space allowed I would love to grow flowers to encourage pollinators, and dynamic accumulators to make subsoil minerals more readily available to crops. You provide land and water and I'll do the work. Contact me and we can discuss your vision and mine. I live in Hendersonville and work in Mills River so this is the area I would prefer to garden. Thanks for your time and consideration. All the best. Johnny.
