Wanted a partner to share our farm.
I am 75 years old this year and I am slowing down. We have a very wonderful organic lifestyle that is debt and mortgage free and want to share it with someone who is equally enthusiastic about farming. We have a new two bedroom apartment for a living space for those interested. We have tractors and draft horses with every piece of equipment necessary for growing seeds for our vegetable oils and flour. We are totally self sufficient food for ourselves horses, cow and chickens as well as having solar electricity, diesel generators that run on sunflower, oil plenty of water and a greenhouse. See our internet site for an idea of what we have. Give us a shout if you are interested at firstname.lastname@example.org .
On our farm, we press Sunflower, flax, camelina and hemp oils from organically grown crops from our farm. We also produce rye and spelt flour along with corn meal from our fields. We have heritage chickens and organic eggs.
We are self sufficient in water, feeding ourselves and our animals, as well as electricity from solar cells and generators that run on our sunflower oil but grid is available if necessary.
As well as the four draft horses we have four tractors, a combine and a swather with all of the equipment needed for tractors and horses in the fields, for harvesting and planting.
We practice regenerative farming using pastures and animals, having crops only after a few seasons of pasture to restore soils with cover crops and compost. There is lots of water and there is a greenhouse.
We have a welding shop, machine shop and wood working shop and all the equipment necessary for making and maintaining our equipment.
We have a wood lot were we log with the horses. We heat our water and buildings with a wood fired stoves in the winter and have evacuated tubes in the summer for hot water.
The farm is debt and mortgage free and have a good customer base for our oil and flour sales which could also be customers for a vegetable or other businesses.
We are non religious.
Wages from $16 to $20 per hour are possible depending on skills and education for the first year.
