Long-term goal or vision for land

The farmers running the pastured poultry operation are keen to have a market gardener on the land either for short- or long-term opportunities. They are open to those who are newer to farming, and the market garden area is set up with beds and irrigation, making it easier for someone to step into the farming season. The market gardener would participate in weekend market days on the farm in the summer season to complement the current farmer’s pastured poultry products.
