For Lease: 5 – 10+ Acres outside Silverton. Oregon


Description

We are a beautiful 100-year-old working farmstead with 5 to 10+ acres available for non chemical farming.

There is a very good area for a large market garden (2-3 acres) that can be irrigated from the year round ‘spring fed’ farm pond.

The soil is very fertile, and does not require much to make it extremely productive.

In addition there are several acres available for rotational grazing, but would require adequate livestock fencing.

Owner is currently operating a successful business with guest rentals, horses and some small livestock . Owner would also be interested in sharing some space and farm buildings in exchange for help in raising a few fiber animals and sustainably and ethically pasture raised American Guinea Hogs for meat.

Housing available for the right applicant.

Potential match would need to be open to all aspects of sustainable farming practices. And have some working knowledge of farming and an understanding of the intense hours required to maintain a working farm.

Please Note: Any potential lessor must also be aware that the aesthetics of the garden and surrounding property are important to the overall look of the property. And safety and cleanliness are paramount!
