More info: Homesteading in a permaculture style with a combo of some animals and vegatable/flower production/veg starts. Perennials are important so a place for berries and fruit trees (apples) and the like. Enough space to keep a pig, chickens and possibly cow for milking to produce our own meat and milk/cheese. We look forward to seeing what our market demands and molding ourselves accordingly.

Personal experience and production goals summary:

I have worked on 3 different farms doing organic row cropping for markets and had my own greenhouse opporation in Washington state. We mostly have experience growing vegetables and chickens (we currently have laying hens) but would like to expand. Total number of seasons farming for me is about 10 and for Tony about 3. Total in North Carolina is 4. Currently we are both in the service industry with farming backgrounds. My partner Tony is a butcher and I am a cafe manager. We have been renting a home on a little land so have been growing food for ourselves the past few seasons. We are ready to change lifestyles and become full time farmers. We are steady, hardworking individuals whom know farming is no easy feat. We have grand ideas but are VERY practical and know the trials of farming are not glorious. We are looking for an honest lifestyle that demands hardwork and creativity to sustain us and survive the rest of our years. We know many people in the Asheville area in the farming community and look forward to support and be supported by our fellow farmers and local residents.
