Entering Farmer 20105
Born and raised in the Philadelphia Area. I apprenticed on a 90-acre organic, vegetable CSA that also had an Asian pear, apple, and peach orchard, blueberries and strawberries, and some small livestock. I also independently established and managed a small pastured broiler operation that sold 600 birds. I just recently came back from the Peace Corps in Nepal in August, 2017.
I am interested in starting a market garden with a small CSA and a strong presence in farmer’s markets in the area. I am also interested in growing strawberries and garlic as separate operations, possibly a winter CSA as well. I have most of a 3 year business plan complete, would strongly prefer to lease-to-own the land, but open to all opportunities.
