My name is Thomas Meyer. I have been searching for a place to lease some land for gardening and possibly some livestock down the line. I found your post and I wanted to reach out and introduce myself and see if you would possibly be interested in a lease arrangement.
I got my foundation for agricultural work in high school. After high school I joined the military during which I spent some time apprenticing with a sheep farmer. After an honorable discharge, I attended farrier school, and sheep shearing school. For that winter I went back and apprenticed at that same sheep farm. I spent the next year shearing sheep, shoeing horses, and gardening with a friend. Most recently I have worked on 2 large cattle operations in Colorado and Montana.
I am now looking for a place where I can have a large garden of my own as well as something I can use as a blacksmith shop (and if the opportunity is available livestock production). My style of farming/ranching would most likely fall under most people's definition of organic.
