Any of you seeking a chance to farm in Mi? Please read on
I wanted to share some information with you about farmers who are looking to transition out of agriculture and who would like to identify someone younger to work with them with the possibility of developing a buy-out agreement. Rose and her husband are seasonal vendors at the Kalamazoo Farmers' Market. She recently attended a workshop for farmers' market vendors that MSU sponsored and she told me of their interest in finding someone who would continue farming their land. I asked her to write a brief description that I could share, and here it is. I suggest that we share this selectively with people who are looking for an opportunity to get into this type of farming.
Thanks very much.
