The rest of the property is hillside with fenced in areas for roaming/grazing animals and gardening. There is well water providing 100 gallons per minute.

Type of opportunity - more info

I am a transplant from NYC whose always had a dream of having an organic/biodynamic farm. Being a city dweller most of my life, I have little to no experience in farming. However, I did take a 2 week course in permaculture some years back, so I have basic knowledge of how that system works. I've been a member of the Park Slope Food Coop in Brooklyn, NY (largest coop in the country with over 17,000 working members) for the past 20 years and have been consuming an organic diet for over 30 years. I have a PhD in Natural Health and wish to see more organic, pesticide free and non-GMO foods in the market place.
