20 acres with a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house near Bangor, MI. Bangor is situated between South Haven, a very popular resort and boating community, and Kalamazoo, a growing college town. Fennville, a growing center for sustainable farming, is nearby. Detroit, Chicago, Grand Rapids, Holland, Saugatuck, and St. Joseph/Benton Harbor are all accessible markets.
The property has a mix of soil types, mostly sandy loam according to the US soil survey. It was used as a homestead at one point, but fell into disuse before I bought it.

20 acres for rent in beautiful Harbor Country, Michigan!
We have a 28 acre farm in SW Michigan and are renting 20 acres to an organic farmer. We have had a certified organic rye crop the past 2 years and are seeking someone who will farm our land with organic and sustainable practices. Since we bought the property in 2010 we have not had any RoundUp or harmful chemicals and the field has been fallow 2 of the past 5 years. We fertilized with organic chicken manure 2 years ago and spread hi-cal lime last year. Hoping for the right individual to offer us a fair price! firstname.lastname@example.org

The Leelanau Conservancy just launched a long-awaited website designed to connect farmers with available farmland. The program called Farmer to Farmer (f2fmi.com) also allows landowners to promote their property to prospective growers. Similar to FarmLink programs in other states, Farmer to Farmer is a new take on farmland access and support.
Farmer to Farmer also provides an agricultural job-seeker board to connect growing farms with a qualified labor pool. The project is a partnership of the Leelanau Conservancy, the Grand Traverse Regional Land Conservancy, MSU Extension, and Taste the Local Difference.

This is the "square peg" ideal for someone in West Michigan, who may not be ready yet for a full scale enterprise, but wants to work good land and needs a site. Use of my land is FREE to the right project. I am as much about growing community as I am about growing food. Share it around if you like. I will entertain any serious, practical, proposal. skabungus.blogspot.com/
