I have been farming professionally for 14 years. Most of my experience has been in Alaska, but I have also farmed in the Catskills, and now a salaried farmer in North Stonington, CT. While it is a good job, I really miss being my own boss, and would like to pursue this option again. I am originally from Westerly, and am returning to the area after 24 years away. I am a 42 year old woman, separated, no children.
I only put 2 acres as the acreage desired because a value is required. I’m open to other size acreages.
I have experience with large Community Supported Agriculture operations (400 members). I am a beginner in orchard management. But the bulk of my experience is growing vegetables for CSA and wholesale.
My business plan would really be tailored to the actual piece of land, and the relationship with the landowner— what he/she/them would like to see happen. And it will of course be a work in progress. But the sky’s the limit and the opportunities are out there, so I encourage you to reach out and take the first step.
Please reach out to me directly, and I will send a resume and some articles I have written, and articles that have been written about me.
