Description

Hey Kids,

We’re looking for the right folk(s) to come out and give this land the love it deserves. Weekend and full time farmers inclusive. We started a small cut flower and pork operation out here but my husband and I both run other companies (automotive and non-profit, respectively) and are backing off the intensive commitment. Property is 5 acres, 1 acre-ish fenced, another 3/5thish cleared, and 3 acres wooded. Possible to rent small cabin w wood heat. Private bath, kitchen in big house’s daylight basement. good water supply. land is a cindercone (read: steep, good soil structure, low nutrients) formerly logged in the 90s? We’re 45min from portland, 5 minutes from columbia/washougal rivers. Open to trade for land use. This is not a situation for RVs.
