Description

Landowners, Stewards, and potential partners,

My name is Elan Wischkin. I am a longtime Weston resident seeking farmland in Fairfield County.  I have a diverse farming background.  Some highlights include urban farming in Berkeley, CA, olive harvesting and tree care in Israel, permaculture nursery in Kenya, organic vegetable and cannabis farming in Oregon, property and facilities management in Wilton, CT, maple syrup production in Weston, CT.  My connection to farming is first and foremost to have a personal/spiritual connection with the land and its cycles.  I am more interested in setting up a perennial system (i.e. fruit and nut trees, medicinal plants, native pollinators) versus annual vegetable production.  I do not intend to make farming my career. I have other work to provide for me- bookkeeping and counseling.  Farming to me is a service to my community of family and friends to share in the abundance of nature, and a personal humbling experience.
