2 Acres of Fenced, Irrigated Land in Bend =

Description

Looking for a passionate flower or vegetable/herb farmer to cultivate this space. Nearly two acres of fully fenced, flat land. Formerly used to graze horses. Not sprayed and irrigated all season long. I’d love to partner with someone who has the farming passion and knowledge. The business/marketing side is my jam, plus providing the land and water. Or, I’d joyfully lease this space to the right person and be your biggest supporter.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Use this land and water for good! Would love to find the right person to lease the space or partner with to grow flowers, veggies, herbs... open to possibilities.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Grow sustainable flower farm (or veggies, herbs, bees, etc). Possibility of U-Pick events. Possibility of weekend or pop-up stand.


Current Use

Currently not used. In previous seasons this area was used as part-time grazing pasture for two horses and a couple goats.


Available Water / Irrigation

Water rights in Swalley Irrigation District - irrigation water from April through October and city water available, too.


Soil Type / Quality

Soil hasn't been sprayed, currently covered in orchard grass as cover crop. Good quality soil from the horse manure.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

3-sided horse shelter that can be used for packing or used to store equipment. Open to building another shed/outbuilding or bringing storage container onto premises if needed.


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Some basic gardening tools, post driver, riding mower


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Zoned Multiple-Use Agriculture with irrigation rights. So no restrictions on farming. I'd prefer low impact or no-till farming practices to limit machinery and impact to the area.
