Entering Farmer 20028.

We are both veterans of the Iraq war and recently discharged from the U.S. Army. We envision a diversified organic farm where we will provide meat, vegetables, fruits, and dairy products for our CSA customers. It is important to us to preserve heritage breeds of livestock and rare heirloom varieties of vegetables, and we hope to one day become a source of seed and herd sires. We hope to conduct much of the work with draft animals, as this will save costs on equipment purchase and repair as well as provide a marketing draw for customers to visit the farm. We have experience working on a guest horse-and-cattle ranch in the Rocky Mountains, and we envision operating educational farm tours on the property, culminating in something like a bed-and-breakfast, youth camp, or apprenticeship program for beginning farmers, depending on the facilities available on the property. Our ideal farm would include reliable year-round water, a few acres of woodlot, more in fenced pasture and hayfield.
