Seeking Lease or Creative Partnership for Diversified Farming


Land Seeker Description

I am looking for new opportunities to farm! I am currently located in Yamhill County, but would be interested in relocating for the right opportunity. I intend to farm with the goal of building soil health and biodiversity, and have a proven track record of improving the land with management-intensive grazing. I am very interested in integrating livestock grazing with fruit/ nut trees and grapes vines. I’d also like to do my part in re-establishing native oak trees. I’d be happy to share my resume and talk in depth about my experience. I am available by phone/ text at 541-252-2322, or email at

What features of the property are essential?

Water would be a plus, but not necessary to get started.

Describe your farming experience

13+ years experience working on a diversity of farms and ranches, both big and small. Extensive experience with livestock and management intensive grazing. Some valuable experience with market gardens and vineyards. I'd be happy to share my resume.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Begin with rotational grazing with cattle, sheep, and/ or goats, depending on what is appropriate for the ground using electric fencing. Build fences and infrastructure (mainly water), plant trees/ vines if long-term lease. Establish direct-to-consumer and/ or wholesale markets. Possibly add poultry, hogs, and market garden/ berry production, farm store/ agritourism opportunities depending on the site and its location.

What are your long term goals

Continue building a diverse ag and biological system. If site is suitable, possibly establish a micro-dairy, commercial kitchen, and/ or farm stay. Re-establish oaks/ native plants in large open pasture for shade and biodiversity.

Describe your housing needs

Not necessary but would be a plus if adequate housing was available!

What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

I intend to treat everyone with respect and without judgement.
