For lease: 5-9 acres in Scotts Mills, Marion County, OR

Description

My husband, little daughter and I have a 9.8 acre farm in Scotts Mills, OR.  Looking for a temporary or potentially long-term lease situation with organic (certified or not) farmers with some experience.  We’re located on cleared, relatively flat, pastured land, with a good well, rich soils, and full sun exposure.  We will be doing some small-scale vegetable, fruit, and berry production here as well, with a few sheep, many cats, and kids.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We would like to find a way to keep the farm productive and keep blackberries at bay.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

I would like to see a small-scale, integrated farm (garden, orchard, managed pasture, vineyard/berries, wood lot) take up the large pasture we have now.


Current Use

The acres that are available for lease have been kept as a pasture for our small flock of sheep, but it's much more than they need. We've been cutting it for hay.


Soil Type / Quality

Very fertile, well drained soil.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Barn, shop


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Water could be an issue, because we only have one well that also services our house. We haven't had any issues running out of water yet, but we should be water-conscious in whatever we decide to do.
