organic farmers seeking farm to rent or manage
Must include housing
Experienced with livestock (meat and dairy), vegetable production, medicinal herbs, mushrooms, etc. The more land the better! barns, greenhouses, fencing, etc are all a great bonus, but must have a house

Here's one place to look for land:

http://www.nofanj.org...­

Check the resources section, then click on classifieds. Both land and jobs available. Also, you might want to consider looking at their beginning farmer program, which can get you access to land on their incubator farm, access to tools, educational resources, and a farming mentor.

Here's another set of resources to check out (and a great place to browse and find support in general as a beginning farmer):

Another thing I've been considering as an aspiring farmer is starting a community land trust or a farmer cooperative, and buying land as an organization, after which parcels could be divided up for each farmer/group. If this sounds like something you or anyone you know would be interested in, please shoot me an e-mail at robert.meyer86@gmail.com. I don't have every detail of the idea worked out, but similar to the NOFA incubator farm, it could make access to land much easier for people like you and me.

Hi
thank you for the replies. I am familiar with the above resources and have been browsing them often. I figured it was worth a shot to ask here in case any members owned farms or had friends who did thanks again for the input
