Position: Organic farmer 2019
Type: self employment; with on-farm housing for 2
Organization: Mansfield Heritage Farm
Location: Mulmur (Mansfield), Ontario

There are 2 acres available to rent to a keen farmer. It is a seasonal farm with equipment and tools. Rentor would need his/her own car/truck and some upfront money, Historically we have done two markets in cooperation with a neighbour farmer (Creemore and Collingwood) and about 20 CSA weekly baskets of vegetables. The applicant needs to be experienced in designing and following through with a plan that would last about 7 months, from the end of March to the end of October. There is a small greenhouse attached to a secondary building and two hoop houses.

Housing for 2 is provided in this secondary building which has a full commercial kitchen. The applicant is responsible for his/her own meals. The applicant can expect to make about $30,000 gross depending on the work and marketing plan. It is hoped that this land could be rented for 3 years renewable upon satisfaction of both parties. The rental would be $3000 per acre. Animals (chickens) would be the responsibility of the owner with the exception of occasional feeding when she is away. (We have followed the farming design in 'The Market Gardener' which is intensive, organic farming. Knowledge of this book is helpful.)
