Looking for the following:

Type of opportunity:

Sale (Standard), Sale (Owner Financed), Lease with Option to Buy, Business Partnership, Employment, Employment with Transfer. More info: Good day, I am looking to expand our worm farm to Western NC. The climate and culture seem supportive. There are no known worm farms in WNC. Worm farms compliment other enterprises, like cut flowers, herbs and of course animals. Anyone that produces waste needs worms. Worm farms don't require hours of daily chores. This leaves time to grow other ventures, like flowers or herbs. We are looking for a place to sink roots, a business partnership, lease with option to buy or employement are all options while we work out the deatails. Thank you

Current farming practices:

Biodynamic, Transitioning to organic, Ecological production but not certified. More info: We feed the worms only organic scraps at the time. Since we are small we are selective. We are beginning to apply biodynamic farming practices. We consider our farming practice to be beyond organic. Utilizing materials on hand to make great soil for healthy plants and peoples.
