I am an experienced organic market gardener, I have been working for someone else for the past 51/2 years. But would love to run my own farm. I'm looking for 5-10 acres near Ballarat that I could rent from someone long term, happy to pay for water, public liability etc. Contact me at email@example.com I have enough money to pay for all the capital costs, but not to buy land. Can anyone help ?
For further reference, I plan to buy somewhere in the Ballarat region, (ideally looking at Clunes at the moment), and that would be my base, with Seedling production, coolroom, packing shed. I also sell to the wholesale market and a couple of people in Geelong, so needs to be under 2 hours to Melbourne. I'm not really sure what would be an acceptable distance to drive, under 30 mins would be ideal ?
I have a detailed business plan and lots of experience, just cant afford to buy land and invest the capital, so renting would be ideal. I've had a number of offers, but they didn't work out, so please help me get back to what I do best. Currently working in Melbourne maintaining rich peoples gardens, it pays well but its not broccoli. The land must have water, either mains or a bore. Thank you. Would also consider a collaboration with someone with land but no experience.
