saving for land, need farming partners

I am obsessed with growing healthy, natural food and my girlfriend is coming along for the ride. She is studying child development and business so she can open a childcare facility on the farm that will immerse kids in a rich, healthy environment for learning. I will be planting trees, spreading useful plants over the property and getting them established. Farm income will be tenuous the first 3-5 years as the main crops mature, a problem we hope to combat with increased dependence on annuals in the beginning. Ten years after I start my farm, I honestly believe I can be a millionaire.
The land has certain requirements: It has to be within a reasonable distance from a city or near civilization in some way because my girlfriend's business and mine need customers. Also it must have healthy rainfall and soil, be about 20-40 acres, along with a pile of other "nice to have's"

I think it might be nice to have separate partners in this enterprise as it would reduce my need for money up front, speeding up the process of getting my farm. It would be great if different people had different skill-sets that complemented each other's(i.e. mechanic, veterinarian, woodworker, etc.) Of course, we can use all the able-bodied farm-hands we can get!

Is anyone interested in this kind of situation? What are your needs and skills?
He was giving me directions and I was powerless to resist. I cannot resist this tiny ad:
