Name: Sarah Nixon
I have experience in urban goat and chicken farming, and in rural small livestock farming. I work at the Urbana farmers’ market. I am leading and developing a prize-winning miniature equine play therapy program for children in the UC area, in affiliation with the Health Maker Lab at the Carle College of Medicine (UIUC) and in partnership with community organizations in UC.
I am seeking to rent a room in a rural homestead where I can have the use of a quarter of an acre for a paddock (I will supply fencing and shelter).
I am mature, quiet, and tidy. Budget TBD.
Looking for land: Champaign County (and adjacent counties); Urbana area preferred.
Enterprises being considered: Miniature equine.
Total acres desired: 1/8 to 1/4
Organic? Doesn’t matter
Need farmhouse? Yes
Transition information: Short-Term (1-5 Year) Lease
