For lease / partnership / creative solutions: Partial / full 26 acres (16 flood irrigated) in Eagle Point / Jackson County

Description

We have a 26 acre family homestead that we are aiming to turn into a thriving farm and conscious living community. The land lies in a mini valley outside of the town of Eagle Point. We are located 45 minutes to Ashland, Crater Lake, Grants Pass and only 20 minutes to Medford for coffee shops and natural food stores.

Currently we’re raising chickens, ducks, and geese and are looking to expand with more livestock because we have 16 acres of flood irrigated pasture. The thing is, we are a little intimidated as we have more experience with row crop farming and edible landscaping. It would be awesome if you have livestock experience and a herd / flock and we could learn a little by helping you out with your herd/flock. We’re also excited for folks who want to plant rows crops, herbs, berries, or whatever other ideas you have.

We are aiming to create a diverse farm ecosystem and would love to have more than one farmer / family on the property. We are currently planting fruit trees and shrubs and would like to use permaculture principals to expand on that as well. In the past we have worked on and run small organic row crop farms. We may be doing an acre of row crops this season in addition to some other cash crops.

We live on-site with our two young children and could possibly offer housing in a detached cottage which would share a kitchen and bathroom with our house. We’re also open to folks bringing their own living situation like: buses, RVs, Yurts, Domes, or even building your own structure.

We’d love to have more families who are interested in homeschooling / unschooling and conscious parenting.

Here’s a little about us:
We are a family of four homesteading and homeschooling.
Noah (35) is a green-thumbed papa who digs cycling, practicing yoga, designing diverse gardens, traveling on a shoestring, and being a cool dude.
Eleanor (36) is an earth-loving mama who loves caring for animals, tending to vegetables, experimenting in the kitchen, spending time with friends and family, and learning how to be a better person.
Mira (7) is an outgoing, creative fairy who delights in drawing, telling stories, adventuring, singing, cooking, playing with friends, and caring for animals.
Acacia (5) is an introverted, yet talkative, little elfkin who enjoys dismantling and building things, riding his bike, playing with friends, and rocking out to music.
We aim to live our life to the fullest and are always striving to find a healthy balance between our passions and our responsibilities.
