Looking for a farm couple / farmer with experience in any of vegetables, berries, fruit, mushrooms, medicinal herbs and livestock to help re-create a farm, preferably using permaculture (+ biodynamics?), on this 160-year-old former dairy farm. It’s 200 acres, about 47 acres pasture / meadow, most of the rest forest, in East Meredith, NY (Delaware County, near Delhi / Oneonta).
