We’ve never used this land to its potential for a variety of family reasons. We thought for years about how to share the land with other farmers but Oregon’s land use laws are overly restrictive. This is a beautiful, beautiful place and Silverton is a wonderful little town.
Find the right beginning farmers to share this land with. We will be switching from cattle to more sheep and bees as we get older. We are 62 and 64 and are planning for the future.
Keeping the land safe for bees and other living things. In the next 15 years we do envision leasing the land long term to other likeminded farmers. We have no plans to sell the land.
Grazing cattle, sheep and pigs. Bee forage, wildcrafting herbs.
Nekia and possibly McAlpin at the 5 acres we are offering. Great spring that does not run off property will need to be developed to provide water for the land.
Owners home, accessory building, owners barn.
We have a small tractor and would be willing to work together on shared projects.
Due to location will have to be CSA/Market Garden not suitable for farm stand or agritourism/events. Landholder does host occaisional herb classes onsite. Most of the land is sloped and we will likely be planting pine trees to accomodate change in climate on the sloped areas.
To contact a land holder, you must first fill out a land seeker profile and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
