Seeking to lease 2-50 acres in Multnomah or Clackamas County to start a farming operation


Land Seeker Description

I currently own and operate Henkle Homestead Farm, a small farming operation in east Multnomah County. I have raised sheep, goats, hogs, chickens, and turkeys. I am looking for some agricultural land to lease for a friend whom grew up on a farm and would like to get back into it. Ideally the land would have some pasture for grazing animals and a small barn. If the land has no barn, the lessee would be able to establish a small structure to provide shelter for farm animals.  Depending on the land offered, this person may want to grow fruits and vegetables. The land will need to have a reliable water source available, but irrigation may not be necessary.

What features of the property are essential?

Pasture, water, and ideally a barn.

Describe your farming experience

The person I am inquiring for grew up on a farm.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Produce meat to special cultural needs within the Portland Metro area as a part-time farmer.

What are your long term goals

Become a full-time farmer.

Describe your housing needs

No housing needs are required.

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

The lessee is a Nepalese US citizen and would enhance the access of people with diverse backgrounds with the potential of hiring them once the farming operation is experiencing some financial success.
