Here's the deal: Since starting the farm six years ago, I have learned a great deal about this land, this community, and what it will take to make this farm successful. The farm has been profitable in the past but I strongly believe that we are poised to make some significant strides in the next year. At this point, the key to the success of this farm is finding the right people.
