I have been farming for almost twenty years: veggies, fruit, flowers, herbs, livestock. My family (my wife, Lili, our 5 year old daughter, Juniper and our 7 year old son, Jonas) are interested in bringing our farming skillset to Canada, and experiencing everything that BC has to offer.
Farming for almost 20 years: 4 years as farm crew, 10 years as farm manager, 4 years renting land for our own CSA farm. I have only ever farmed organically, growing: vegetables, flowers, herbs, mushrooms, berries, tree fruit. I have also worked with beef cattle, chickens, sheep, bees. Marketing has been varied: CSA's, restaurants, farmers markets, farm stands.
I plan to farm with my wife, Lili and my kids, Jonas and Juniper.
Our core ideals are all deeply rooted in community. Our passion is to provide sustenance, organically grown and available to all. We are open to many different models for making that a reality: managing established operations, long term farm lease, lease to own, purchase or some combination thereof.
Relationship with Farm Owner
Open to ideas of how best to structure the business relationship. We highly value honest, clear communication and would hope to find a farm owner who brings similar ideals to the partnership, and with whom we have compatible visions for the property.
