Leasing 5+ acres near Parkdale, OR, Hood River County


We currently own 15.5 acres in the upper Hood River Valley, 5+ acres of that is in a sweet cherry orchard.  Soils here are deep and well drained (Parkdale loam) and of low bulk density which makes the area easily tillable.  The land sits on an area known as Trout Creek Ridge.  We are not opposed to removing the cherry trees in favor of another cropping system. The site is irrigated through the local Middle Fork Irrigation District.  Slopes range from 0 to 3%.  We are looking to lease the 5 acres mentioned above, but would continue to control the remaining 10.5 acres as our homesite.
