SILT has already matched two of its three farms, the latest in NE Iowa.
Last week, Will Lorentzen and his wife Adrian White moved the last of their belongings to Garber (bumping Garber’s population up by more than 2 percent!) Will plans to farm by limiting his tillage footprint while still producing food for market, including shiitake mushrooms he is growing in the timber.
STILL AVAILABLE: Perfect for a beginner – Acreage 70 miles south of Des Moines. Timber, pond, pasture, fences, good for small herds of small livestock. Renovated 3-bedroom home for rent nearby. Fruit and nut trees already planted, and donor wants to help the next farmer acquire a hoop house. Contact us ASAP for this season. Service veterans, women and disadvantaged farmers encouraged to apply.
