We received this request for help from Noreen Edwards:
“My brothers and I grew up farming on our property 7 miles east of Ponchatoula, LA … We had free range beef cattle (but 40 years ago, who knew free-range beef would one day be so valuable) and strawberries. The strawberries were farmed conventionally with herbicides and fungicides. But no one has farmed there for at least 25 years, so it could be certified as organic I think…
“We own three parcels of land there, and must sell some, but are thinking of keeping one piece that’s about 20 acres. Our family house is on the property and my niece lives there, and my brother is planning on building a house next to it.

“Produce, grain or cruelty free animal products are possibilities. Recreational and educational farming activities are also possibilities. We would entertain any proposals. If you are interested please let me know. And please distribute freely.”
be a wonderful opportunity for a farmer.
