Patrick (33) and Savanah (25) here. We're on the search for exciting opportunities as the certified organic farm we currently manage on Maui is for sale and we need to find a new home! We've been farming and practicing/studying permaculture for 8+ (Patrick) and 5 (Savanah) years. We have experience ranging from small-scale homestead farming to large scale production farming. We've each had farm management experience managing crews, nursery, education and training, etc. We have experience working with chickens, ducks, and goats. Patrick has experience with tractors and Savanah has hand pushed rototiller experience although we have a preference for low-impact or a no till approach. Patrick has farmed in the NE, Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii while Savanah has experience primarily in Hawaii and some experience in Washington State. We have experience with community living and enjoy both small town and city life.
Patrick has a love for all things permaculture. He's truly happiest in the field working to create something that is not only functional, but beautiful and harmonious. He loves to teach and learn and is truly passionate about making COMPOST. Patrick has experience working with adults with developmental disabilities on farms, art projects, and daily care.
Savanah enjoys working in the field and in he nursery as well as working in the kitchen. She loves to bake bread and pastries, ferment foods and beverages, pickle and preserve foods, dehydrate, and cook. She enjoys making herbal body products including soap, sunscreen, salves and balms, lip balms, face masks, body scrubs, etc.
We're interested in value added enterprising whether that be value added food products, value added body products, etc. We're also interested in education and food justice. We live a pretty quiet life, enjoy reading, chess, tennis, biking, hiking, music, art. Preference for Western U.S. as most of our family is in Northern California and Arizona, but open to all opportunities.
hey you 2,
well living in hawaii sounds pretty amazing. Are you still there or have you come over to the rest of the states already? I just wanted to let you know that my partner and I have 20 acres in Toutle, WA and we are welcoming folks who want to live simply back in nature to come stay and see if they want to call this place home with us. We are hoping to have 4-5 families here eventually, growing all our own food or eating the wild foods that nature provides us already. Thought we may have enough in common so wanted to reach out. We don't have a farm that needs "run" currently, we are just getting started. And its more of a homestead than a "farm". But we intend to support the whole community some day through things we produce or craft on the land. Let me know if this sounds interesting to you and we can discuss more details. Good luck on your search!
Hi,I am Leon Zhao, I and my wife(both 31) bought a 60 acres farm in Oregon(5 miles from salem,used for organic pastures). I want to set up an permaculture farm(establishment of productive vegetable and fruit gardens and orchard areas, establish a profitable CSA/working relationship with local chefs). I am seeking farm manager(also as a partner).I'd love to meet up with you.
I know you said you would prefer the west coast, but i thought i would send you a request to contact me. I live in the NC foothills. I have an acre small town property i would love to get established. I am particularly interested in your herbal knowledge as most of the agriculture people here say that is a niche that is sorely lacking in this area. I am offering room, board and a small stipend for anyone interested. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to talk. Thank you.
