Rec for expert to manage small urban residential organic farm
Hello! Here's the background on this question: my parents have lived for several decades on a 2 acre property in the East Bay and during that time have cultivated dozens of fruit trees including stone fruits, apples, pears, nuts, olive trees, grape vines, and berry bushes. Somehow they managed this with little and at times no hired help in addition to making wine and olive oil while also working and raising three children (I still don't understand how). They have put a lot of time and energy into learning about organic farming and applying their knowledge. Late last year, my dad passed away, and my mom, though fit and healthy for her age, cannot imagine continuing to manage this over the long term, though loves the house and the property and is not ready to move. Does anyone have a recommendation for a professional, nonprofit group, company, etc who would be qualified to manage this property for her and our family - continue cultivating the plants and managing harvests? I imagine our family would want to continue being involved (helping with harvest days, wine making etc) but want to find someone to direct and oversee things. I imagine this would be above and beyond the typical landscaping and gardening company. Ideas welcome, thank you!
