Looking for a mutually beneficial Lease/Partnership on 75ac near Oregon City

Description

This is a beautiful, naturally diverse property in an ideal location.  Im surrounded by mostly homesteads and some timber.  No spraying or CAFOs around! Located right next to a quaint general store and eatery.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

I would like to partner with experienced farmers who will value this property and hopefully utilize some of the animals who currently reside here. My hope is to create an arrangement where my farm name and staple products remain. I would like to plant the field in very wide rows of apples and pears which will eventually provide shade for my poultry and ruminants. I have a contract with NRCS and soil and water for conservation cover and cross fencing, and a main to bring water down the field to the paddocks.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

This may be a long term situation. Essentially I would like this property to be a pilot farm for another location.


Current Use

I have 7 dual purpose dairy cows (who could just make and nurse beef steers), hogs, fallow crop land, have antique apples grafted but not yet planted in the field


Available Water / Irrigation

Large pond, springs, with 32ac irrigation Rights


Soil Type / Quality

Excellent Jory soils, check out soil survey


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Two lean-tos, large shop, greenhouse, 2 large homes


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Tractor (massy 245 w bucket and brushhog), various tools, an old farmtruck (which need a mechanic), a walk behind tiller (which needs a mechanic)


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

farm has approx 30ac in riparian/forest which has been beneficial for shade and grazing for my cows. I had begun utilizing the hogs to reclaim areas taken over by blackberries.
