ORGANIC FARMING OPPORTUNITY

Position: Partner in an Organic Farm and Market
Organization: New Leaf Organic Farm
Location: Perth, Ontario (on-site housing, see below)

Searching for a full partner in our established Certified Organic Farm for the 2019 season. With the potential of a long term land lease on the farm to young farmers that may want to develop their own Farm and market opportunities.

The farm is fully certifed and has been in operation for two years. Much of the initial infrastucture is in place and most of the major start up necessities are in place. We have a 50hp tractor with a tiller, bedder, full disc farrow,and finishing cutter. The irrigation system is set up for most of the 3 acre vegtable beds. We have some perennial crops in and hoping to add more.

We currently sell at two Farmer's Markets and hope to expand in 2020. Mostly vegtables and some fruit we have also seen some fair success in Micro-greens and preserves.

We also have an addition 6 acre field that has been under cover crop for two year now that is just waiting to be utilized.

For the 2019 season we are looking for an experienced worker or couple willing to commit up to 50% of the seasonal startup costs. This mostly would be: seed costs, some ammendments like compost, and fertilizers, market fees, certification fees, and some small tool and irrigation parts that may need upgrading.

In return the partner(s) would get 50% of the income from the farm for the same season.

We would also be willing to work with the new partner is setting up your own business in one of the other fields on site. Most of the land has not been worked or maintained and will require some time and muscle to get to a point where is may be profitable but with the effort there could be great potential.

On site housing can be worked on, we will have a room in the house available, and a trailer that can be "rented' and there is always the long term option of a tiny house.
