You don't say what is on the land right now (in terms of cover), but if the part you want to till is really 15% slope, I'd suggest you consider not doing it in September. If you decide to till it in the fall, do it as early as possible and try to get a cover crop going right away. Also, be prepared to straw mulch if you don't get a really good cover crop established (or if some heavy fall rainstorms come in before it has a closed "canopy").
I'm not sure about the liming timing. Maybe others could tell whether it could be put on in the spring, instead. Also, how important it is to incorporate it into the soil (ie, can lime be a top-dressing, or applied before mulching, effectively?).
Good luck on your new enterprise.
