Lewisburg, West Virginia
We have a 100 ac. family farm near Lewisburg WV, currently raisinheritage hogs, chickens, and 3 acres of produce which supplies several area farm markets. A 3000 sq ft high tunnel has been erected to promote season extension, we utilize a raised bed, plasticulture with drip irrigation. Upwards of 20-30,000 row feet available. Not certified organic, but organic standards followed, land has been chemical free for 4 decades. We are looking for the right young, energetic, go-getter, to take these crops from seedling to market. That includes planting, maintaining, harvesting, packaging, and selling at 3 area Farm Markets.
Our farm is established in the area, a mainstay in the area markets, and potentially a top producer in the county. We currently supply 4 restaurants, and 120 individual customers, with much room to expand. We are wanting to focus more on developing our meat production, as well as some value added product options. The right person/couple would adopt the produce operation as there own baby, we would help with soil nutrient quality, raised bed mulch laying, drip irrigation, cover crops (green manure) and natural fertilizers, seeds, seedlings, and refrigeration before point of sale.
Pay would be the ability to stay on property potentially, all be it, if you bring or build a structure. (I am also a building contractor with all those tools, and some materials) An equitable and realistic profit share of all produce sales, completely negotiable, There are 36 weeks of Market sales annually and 3 area markets. We estimate total income potential of 3 acres, at 30-45k, if done correctly and diligently.
alt.minded and easy going family of 4. No drug users, or smokers. alcohol fine if used in moderation. Other acreage may be available for own use if things work out. Recruiting for the 2013 season, starting around March 15th. Can train the right folks…
