Land Link Sneak Peek

Rotationally Grazed Central Missouri Dairy

A central Missouri dairy seeks a beginning farmer to purchase their 79 acre rotational-grazed dairy operation. The farm features electric cross fencing and auto-watering to 12 paddocks and a partial line of machinery that could be used by a successor. The current landowner will serve as a mentor to a beginning farmer for the initial months of ownership and help ease the transition onto the new farm. Purchase of cattle to accompany the farm is negotiable.

Beginning Farmer Desires Small Plot to Grow Vegetables

A beginning vegetable farmer seeks 5-20 acres anywhere in the United States to start her own organic vegetable farm. The farmer will cultivate vegetables, berries, and possibly establish fruit trees. Organic practices including composting are planned, and she may use small animals in the operation to encourage on-farm nutrient cycling. This farmer plans to build a greenhouse and hoop houses on the property. Produce will be marketed through farmers markets and Community Supported Agriculture (CSA).
