Hello! I am looking to start a small farm in the next couple of years in northeastern Illinois, growing market vegetables, eggs, and hemp for fiber. I am seeking part-time or full-time employment beginning in May where I can learn the trade. I have experience working in greenhouses and orchards as well as landscaping and construction and I have a long standing interest in and knowledge of hemp and cannabis. I consider myself to be old-school cannabis culture. My interest is not primarily commercial -- more socio-political.
If you have room on your northeastern Illinois farm for a passionate hemp activist with a strong back and an eagerness to learn, please contact me. My long term interest is in fiber for textiles and building materials, though I am also interested in grain production. I would be especially interested in working with you if you already farm corn or other grain or fiber. Thank you!
