Farmer Profile for Lisa Westervelt

Please describe your past and/or present farming experience

Sheep and Wool, dairy, chickens, gardening, perennials, herbs .... I've been farming for over 20 years. Unfortunately I had to sell my farm. So I'd like to get involved with a cooperative farming situation. I'm flexible and able to do many farming skills. My focus over the last years has been sheep and wool. I have a wool business and am open to having a business partner.
