Lease of 2-5 acres of farm and forest land, to share in cooperative and sustainable agrarian production of herbal and nutritional products that promote physical and community health.


Description


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We would like to continue develop the capacities, richness, and beauty of this wonderful land; and find new ways to engage with local farmers to form networks that foster collective abundance and enhance the quality of our lives.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

We have been considering a forest conservancy for the 10 acres of mature forests and would like to established production of high quality herbal medicinals and nutrient dense foods. Offer educational workshops on topics of local ecological sustainability. Foster relationships based on principles of abundance and gratitude through strong and interdependent community ties.


Current Use

This beautiful SW exposure river valley is being used to grow fruit and nut trees, grapes, kiwi, and berries of all sorts; it also host a 2000 square foot greenhouse space (that is only half used most years). The forests are second growth and younger, walnuts are being use for restorative treatment in some areas. More pictures will be posted over the coming days. This is one of the two areas in Oregon with a USDA 9b growing zone - warm in the winter, moderated heat in the summer and cool nights - wonderful for fruit and nut ripening!


Available Water / Irrigation

Large production well and seasonal creek, drip irrigation partially developed.


Soil Type / Quality

Ranging from rocky blue clays along the valley ridges to deep clay-loam soils in the valley bottom.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

2000 sq ft greenhouse, 500 sq ft shop, 40' container storage, tractor shed, 30' tipi, outdoor kitchen is planned, small sound/recording studio, library and office space, separate apartment in the main house, 5th wheel, building sites that conform to zoning requirements.


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

26 hp tractor with many attachments, several large stainless steel milk tanks for aquaculture or preparation of fertilizer dressings, a variety of different kinds of trailers, and a truck.


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Probably not well suited for heavy water loving crop production in mid summer or intense warmth in the winter. The natural environment shapes our approaches and limits us to what makes sense.
