Please describe your past and/or present farming experience

My partner and I have a few years of farming experience of various kinds. We are interested to homestead and possibly do small-scale farming, on land in Vermont. We are looking for probably 10 acres min, with some wooded and some clear/pasture land (min 5 acres). At the right price/acre, a property with enough acres to be enrolled in Current Use (or a property already enrolled in Current Use) may be ideal for us. Water on site is a must, as well as ideally good exposure and decent soil/drainage. We are interested in properties that are off-grid and/or have the potential to be off-grid. Our budget is ~100K, somewhat negotiable - as are our search criteria.
