2-3 Acres of Farm Land with housing for lease in Hood River

Description

This unique property of about 15 acres located on the Hood River, about 15 minutes from the town of Hood River, encompasses a variety of micro-climates ranging from flat farmland and riverfront to steep rocky outcroppings. About 2 to 3 acres is used for food cultivation, livestock and a fledgling food forest. Primary use for the past 5 years has been a market garden (mostly annual vegetables, herbs and flowers). Property also has established cherry trees, plum trees, table grapes, raspberries and other fruit trees and shrubs


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

For the past 5 years, we have hosted from 2-8 annual wwoofers to help with growing and processing produce to sell through a small local csa and farmer’s market. We are now seeking a pair of caretakers for our property as we transition out of farming and into other opportunities that will include some travelling. Our ideal short-term situation (1 year) would be to find a working relationship with a couple who wants to live onsite, share livestock care and use our infrastructure to farm. We still want to garden for ourselves and a small customer base we developed through our previous retail store, Grow Organic.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Over the next few years, we’d like to establish a schedule for us to leave the farm for longer periods of time.
