Land Steward or Independant Contractor or Partnership, 9 acres in Jackson County, OR


Successful retiring farmer/rancher seeking paid apprentice. 100+acre rural forested/9 acres pastured land in S. Oregon Cascades at 2,800 ft. with pristine air and location. Organic pastured beef main operation. Very established customer base. Pastures have a 10% organic matter content and over 30 fenced MIG pastures that make Mob grazing (a’la Joel Salatin) quite sustainable and ecologically sound.

Seek mature, responsible, teachable person. There may be options in the future for your poultry or other business if you have one or have thought of having one. I have wide-ranging and comprehensive experiences in farming and construction, skills that will be warmly shared and taught on an ongoing basis as the jobs come up. You do not have to have prior experience in them. Basic Ag and/or Animal Husbandry experience is necessary but the desire and willingness to learn is the most important part one can bring to any project in life.

Some of the opportunities for broad based skills and learning are: ongoing construction projects, soil/pasture management, agronomy (soil testing, lab readings, soil chemistry/tilth, microbial), large scale composting, animal husbandry, agriculture, irrigation, gardening, forest management, (selective thinning, logging dead/diseased trees), heavy equipment operation, vehicle mechanics, oxy/acetylene gas welding, MIG arc welding, and so much more. We try to do it all here. I am looking for a long-term potential partnership with the right person. (Please, short-term interests need not apply). Opportunity of a lifetime. Email

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

To work with a person who is interested in what is being done on the property and to see if it is the right fit for both of us. I feel it is important to develop trust and a good relationship to build upon a mutual vision of the land.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Would like to turn over the beef operation to a proven, responsible and caring individual while I direct my attentions to other responsibilities.

Current Use

Pasture for grass finished beef

Soil Type / Quality

Excellent organic matter content of 9%-10% with a clay/loam structure.

Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

At 2,800' altitude in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains most crops can grow but a watchful eye to seasonal temperatures require timely frost protection. Gardens and cool tolerant crops like garlic, onions, brassica, etc. would do okay.
