I am a farmer without a farm... What are my options of leasing some land for agriculture purposes?

I worked on organic farm for two years. Deeply interested in gardening and larger scale organic agriculture. Right now I live in a small apartment without a real land to develop.
I am thinking about trying to find some good agri land to lease an hour from a major city. Go there with an RV/ or just camp it out. I will have other people helping out/ having a stake financially.
I think that a small plot of 5-10 acres will be enough. At first sell small scale at farmers markets and then start a C.S.A.
What websites/resources/books will be helpful?
Is leasing for a 10 year period on a fixed amount common?
Are they any websites that help lease small plots of agri land?
Thank you Mefi folks,
