We are looking for someone that has some farming experience and has come to the conclusion that they really really really want to be a farmer and realize it is a lifestyle not a job. We are in our mid 50ies and are hoping to find a person or a couple that are interested in taking over from us. Learn from us what we know and then eventually take over our operation.

We have very high standards when it comes to animal husbandry and would like to pass that on to the next generation. We do all the maintenance on our farms ourselves. Lots of life skills to pass on.
Skills Desired: It would be nice if you had experience working with animals. But a passion for animal husbandry is a must.
Meals: We would provide you with most of your food needs. We have meat, vegetables and grains to share but you will cook your own meals.

Housing: yes. There is a 3 bedroom double wide on the farm.
