Lease: 4 acres near Talent, Jackson Co.


Beautiful small farm just outside of Talent in need of new land stewards. Nearly 4 acres of class 1 soils, level to gently sloping, with flood irrigation and mostly fenced. We’re a friendly retired couple living on site who wish to stay on the land but need a younger farmer to take over and continue to grow hay or another crop (just not hemp or cannabis).  Prefer organic or regenerative methods. There is a possibility of including a stand-alone studio apartment. We have a small animal sanctuary including rescued horses, chickens and turkeys, but a portion of our barn is available for storage.  Some work-trade may be an option.

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We'd like a friendly and responsible person to handle all aspects of farming all or part of the available four acres.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Same as short-term, but we would like someone living on site (we have a studio apartment and one-bedroom cottage currently rented) who would be willing to look after our animals so that we are able to travel.
