Personal experience and production goals summary:

My partner and I are currently farming in our 3rd full season. We currently lease and manage 1.5 acres on a no-till organic vegetable production farm in the Hudson Valley of New York. We service a 60 member CSA and attend 2 farmer's markets in Hudson Valley. We are seeking to own/lease (dependent on terms) 3-5 tilable acres - spending a year preparing the land (if needed) and making compost and move into production the following season. We plan to continue using no-till/organic methods. Our short term goal is to establish a CSA and market farm and to one day establish ourselves as a non-profit entity.
