Personal experience and production goals summary:

We are Will and Erica, two young farmers who grow fruits and vegetables using sustainable practices and we are looking for our forever farm community. We’ve spent the past five years farming across the country and we’re ready to put down roots and establish ourselves in a community. We are looking for a piece of land with a farm house where we can live, work, and raise our family. We grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers according to organic standards and pasture-raise animals with their welfare as the utmost priority. Our dream is to provide sustainable foods for our family and our local community, while improving a small piece of earth that will hopefully be passed down to the next generation better than we found it.
