Howdy All,

Permanewbie here looking for folks to share the dream or dream it better .

There are 25 acres of premium soil in the hills of Madison co in NW Arkansas that need to be swaled, food forested and hopefully pasture porked or poultried.

The current dream is to have a farm to food trailer set up in fayetteville, making tinctures with the 70 plus species of medicinal herbs growing already and selling products to restaurants and coffee shops.

There is a small orchard on site apples, pears, plums and peaches, 10 trees maybe. There are 5 or 6 10x4ft raised beds, chicken coop, decent sized barn, a couple of wells, asparagus growing, goat shed, guineas and a very nice house. There were 8 peeps living there so... There's plenty of space.

There is also this: http://fayar.craigslist.org/grd/4508706472.html

I don't have the experience to just jump right in to this, nor the funds but if someone wanted to do this, I could provide the space.

Here's a vid of the place:


I'm not sure how I could pay you at first but once we got the trailer open. You'd be paid. Im 35, male. Email me at wglover923@yahoo.com.

Thanks for your time, cheers,

Please learn more bout what I am seeking and see if we are a good fit.

I want to work with perennial and native plants and create an apothecary, plant medicine and wildcrafts. I have lots of experience with seeds and value growing your own meat.

Keep in touch
