Help setting up pasture lease

I have three acres with running water, bordering a lake in Central Florida. I am moving out of state but plan on keeping the land until it sells; which will probably take a while. I had the idea that if I had someone keep livestock here that it would keep the grass down, keep the fence standing and keep squatters off the property. How would I go about setting this up? Can anyone think of anything that would come back to bite me?
The parameters would be no junk, keep the fence standing, keep the grass down and watch for vandals. I will be out of state so the lease would be nothing but a three acres of grass with no care offered by me. I know nothing about this type of thing and will appreciate ideas on this matter. Iím not looking to make any money off the deal but maybe I should charge a small fee to keep the deal serious.
Thanks

set it up with a contract that is legally binding and expresses every minute detail of the "do's and don'ts"

I would also check with your insurance provider to see what they might recommend to protect yourself should someone get hurt while they were on this property and/or the livestock kept on the property gets out and causes injury/damage off your property. And, of course, everything in writing.
