Looking for the following:

Type of opportunity:

Lease (1 to 5 Years), Business Partnership. More info: I'm looking to get my feet wet with small scale organic/transition grain production. Some late season beans this year would be ideal. I work as a consulting agronomist with a masters degree in soil science from NC State. I dont have equipment and would need to work with someone who does. I have good finances and ready for this opportunity. I also have a standing contract with at least one regional mill, maybe two.

Equipment & infrastructure:

Farm equipment, Irrigation equipment. More info: Its not required but it would be great if you had some equipment. Same goes for irrigation. Its a good insurance plan but not entirely necessary. If you can help me source custom work from the area that would be a plus.

Current production on farm:

Field crops, Hay or pasture, Vegetable production, Cattle (Dairy/Beef), Sheep/Goat (Dairy/Meat).

Current farming practices:

Biodynamic, Conventional, Certified organic, Transitioning to organic, Ecological production but not certified, None, the property is not being farmed. More info: I have experience growing grain in pretty much most systems. I am familiar with Biodynamic Prep 501 as well as full conventional and a lot in between. I also have a lot to learn but I want to get down to work.
