Hi! I grew up on a large potato and wheat farm in the mid-west. I have recently started to feel the pull of the life back towards farming and would like to explore what options are available in CT. I am hoping to find someone who would like to transfer and sell land with buildings over some years so that I could get used to the farming climate here in CT. When I was a student in school, I couldn't see myself farming. Based on what I have learned about Regenerative Agriculture, I realize that the reason I couldn't see myself being a farmer was because I couldn't see myself being the type of farmer that I experienced as a child growing up. I would like to work with a farmer who is currently treating their operation as an Ecosystem, or who is open to talking about shifting towards this process.
My family currently lives in Fairfield, where we keep chickens, bees, do what we can with a garden, have blueberries and have planted some fruit trees. We are doing what we can with the land that we have, but will need to grow to a larger operation at some point in the future. While I'm not in a hurry, I also want to get the process started.
I am open to chatting about all types of possibilities.
