Empty Farm or small holding?

Not begging, not looking for 'something for nothing' This would be a mutually beneficial situation. I have good established equestrian business, its not a huge money maker but it does pay for itself, pay bills and a little left over. Its about 30% rescue horses and the rest is training and sales. (sales pay for rescues) Its made enough to do several surgeries on horses in need and bail out a few horses from the kill pens. We have been running around 6 years and have a good reputation. So as you can see, its a passion not a job. I need a partner who shares this. I invested all my funds and labor into a property and now find I have to relocate. I am hardworking and know my business. I can fix/repair/renovate a property. Ideally I need someone who has an empty farm or small holding, or has a second house on an existing farm. What can I offer in return? The upkeep and improvement of a property, a small income, help with any existing farming already in place. Open to any Location. Please don't be mean, I know its a long shot so just throwing it out there, you never know!

It's not clear in your post if you currently have horses which will also need housing.

if i was doing this JUST for myself, whatever I did would include horses! do you want to come to northeastern PA? see and contact me if you're still looking AND are a SELF STARTER. I've got the almost empty barn (2, actually) and would LOVE a horselady here!!!

I'm in southern Virginia. I've got 200 acres, only a small stable, 7 equine rescues of my own. Just opened up a 2-bedroom home for rent. I don't have a lot of barn or stable space, as it is healthier for the critters to be outside, as this is fairly mild in winter. I am looking for someone to share in animal care, gardening, and also have a farm-enterprise on my property, which also has a 90-foot greenhouse and we sell firewood from harvested trees in our forest. Sounds like you're a good hearted person, but NOT a realist. I've had over 20 horses before, and it gets complicated. Not interested in JUST a "COLLECTOR." What do you have going for yourself other than a bunch of pets?
Good night. Drive safely. Here's a tiny ad for the road:
