  1. Hello there! My name is Jill and I am very interested in speaking with you more regarding your home/farm for rent. I am a horticulturist and avid gardener. My family and I are passionate about growing food and have been seeking out an opportunity like this to grow and sell market garden vegetables. I am interested in the possiblility of erecting greenhouses and also in field production. I am wondering where exactly your farm is located? I would love the chance to meet you in person and to come and have a look if your rental is still available. I am excited to learn more about your farm and look forward to hearing back fron you.

  2. Hello, I am very interested in the possiblity of renting this farm. We ourselves are strong believers in ecoliving and organic farming. We have been farming organically for the last 7 years and we raise organic livestock, as well as garden vegetables and fruits. We have moved from Alberta and are looking for an organic farm to rent here. Can you tell me where this is located? And maybe a little bit about your style of organics? ie: what types of sprays is any have been used there?

    Thank You so much for your time.
    Carolyn
