Wildwoods Community Farm

Land of Our Own

Join our Farmer’s Land Share Program.

Calling all Beginning and Experienced Farmers!

Need Land? We provide a Place to Grow!

Wildwoods helps provide FREE and affordable land to beginning farmers to use where they can plan, plant, harvest, and sell their first crop and save enough funds to get a farm of their own.

There are no land lease costs during your first season, however, you will need to provide your own labor, supplies and materials.

PROGRAM IS FREE TO BEGINNING FARMERS!  This is the first year of the program so everyone starts with bare land and will be responsible for clearing their own plots, amending and preparing their soil, setting up fencing, setting up their irrigation lines, planting, growing and harvesting their own corps.

TOOL LIBRARY:  We are working on getting donations to create a Shared Tool Library and Equipment.  Our goals include obtaining an Onsite Tractor, Community Greenhouse, Tilling Attachments, Irrigation Pump, Garden tools, Seed Swaps, fencing, irrigation lines and other materials.

SHARED RESOURCES:  The Farmers work together as a community and try to help each other when possible which includes helping with each other’s crops when someone is out of town, arranging volunteer days, joining in on potlucks, and sharing support and advice with each other.

EXPENSES: Farmers are responsible for all costs related to their crops including all of their own consumables such as seed, compost, amendments, etc.  Farmers may also have to provide their own fencing or other materials if donations are not available or are not already installed on their assigned farm plots.

HOUSING AND LIVING OPTIONS: The community farm has a limited number of living options available if the farmer would like to live near their crops and as part of a farm community.  Please note that accommodations are limited to one person or up to a maximum of two people.  We are not open to the public as our housing is exclusively for farmers.

FREE FARM PLOTS SIZES: Beginning Farmers are assigned 1/8 acre up to 1/2 acre plots during the first year. Partnerships may be available after the second year with larger plots depending on how you well you do during your initial year.  The plots are leased to the beginning farmers and no land ownership is provided.

The  Farmer’s Land Share Program is intended for new and experienced farmers who are just getting started in the Orange County Farm Community and who would benefit from shared resources.
