We care about productive landscapes and the stewards who make their lives on them. Collectively, we have 8 years of experience working on farms across the United States, from Hawaii to Maine, and have a commitment to the improvement of agricultural systems and the food networks they enrich. If you are a young farmer starting out, we have the knowledge and experience to optimize the layout and management goals for your farm and if you are retiring to a farm, we know what it takes to develop long-term management strategies that will help your land sequester carbon, create wildlife habitat, build soil, and work with the legal parameters.
FINDING AND CHOOSING A PROPERTY
Where do you begin in finding a property for farming? What are the priorities? This process begins an assessment of your needs and goals coupled with an analysis and assessment of available properties. If there are multiple properties of interest, a comparative analysis can help you frame the decision and make the right choice for you and your family. At the end of the process you have a report that frames the relative merits of each site and a recommendation based on your needs.
PLANNING FOR A NEW/CURRENT PROPERTY
Sometimes the most challenging part is finding the direction to move forward with our dreams for a current property. Small steps can lead to big changes over time. We can help by developing a master plan and site design that can frame the short-term objectives in a longer-term framework for your property. After working with us, you will have a plan for developing your property in a regenerative way, outlined in master plan that can be used to guide your own decision-making and communicate to potential funding sources.
IMPROVING ON CURRENT FARM OPERATIONS
If you are currently operating a farm and feel that the operation could run more efficiently and you want to incorporate more holistic land goals into your operation, we can help. Especially if you are looking for ways to save money, enhance the value of your land, or deal with permitting, we can help build on your understanding of your site. You will walk away with a deeper knowledge and a confidence in your actions outlined in report.
