We now have three farms with land seeking farmers. I, who always wanted a farm, seem to be collecting them beyond capacity to hold! I didn’t know it would turn out like this; how ironic. I do not own them fiscally. Their titles remain someone else’s, so if you choose to pursue, please know this is going to be a walk that might or might not end up in your name. Some of the landowners are open to that conversation.
If you choose to farm someone else’s property, I support long-term leases, and lease-to-own, in general. Each situation is thoroughly unique and every single relationship as tender and tenuous as farming.
Contact us at the address which appears, if you are a farmer interested in a long-term lease in Orange or Chatham counties. One farm is just north of Hillsborough, a large multi-acre lot with garden in disrepair, fenced, with access to water and a garden shed. Micro-housing could be an option, but is not provided. Another is closer to Chapel Hill, just over five acres with a liveable microhouse/shed. The third is a bit over an acre and a half south of Siler City.
Farmers, we honor that your investment of sweat and time cannot be replaced, that your youth and energy, passion and purpose all add value. We know you tend to be independent sorts, and are not to be taken lightly. Our goal is to keep farms on the landscape. We will nurture this relationship as you go forward, and support legal and long-term wise business structures for sustainable relationships with humans and the land.
We are so grateful for your good food.
