1.5- 2 acres available in Sonoma – ready for planting, about 3 miles from Sonoma Square. Property has another 2+ acres currently used for a small ‘hobby’ sheep flock – about 10 ewes who produced 13 lambs this season.
Owner has invested in initial setup – Land is fenced, irrigated (just needs the existing new tank to be hooked up and filled), on a well, organic (not farmed before as far as we know) and sheep have been grazing on it occasionally. Property also has a small number of producing olive, apple, and citrus trees that would be accessible for farmer.
The home on the property is also used as a part time bed & breakfast and hosts a few small, intimate ‘retreats’ a year. Ideally the farm contributes to the overall experience for the guests.
There is not provided housing available – though owners would consider an RV or camper on site.
Ideal situation would be to find a farmer interested in a 3+ year lease – and some sort of partnership/ trade of sorts. Ideally, a contribution for electrical for well usage and a minimal yearly payment. Owners are creative, business professionals with a passion for local, regenerative and organic farming – and are open to ideas – small farmstand; CSA contribution; restaurant partnerships; cropshare opportunity; etc.
