Lewis

Location of interest: Within 50 miles of Summersville, WV

Looking to:  Purchase, Lease - Open to discussion

Farming Goals:

I’d like to start a small farm to live and work on and show my daughter the benefits of being a responsible steward of the land. I’m a veteran of US Army and have had difficulty adjusting to life and the land will help heal me as much as I hope to help it. I hope to grow what I need as well as what I can give to my family and anyone else that needs whatever I can produce. Mostly crops but also a small herd of general farm animals such as goats, chickens, cows and maybe even pigs. I’m also interested in fostering horses, dogs and any other animals the local shelters would need the help with. Thank you for taking the time to read my message.
