2 acres in Dexter (30 min from Eugene). Ready to go with deer-proofed fencing, refrigeration, and water rights.


Description

2 acres in Dexter with the infrastructure in place. Two fields, both deer-proofed. High quality, balanced soil that has been farmed organically for the last five years. In addition to water rights, I also have a well, greenhouse, temperature controlled refrigeration, a work shop, and barn. Currently no other animals on the property besides my dog.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

I’d like to find the right match, see some success, and expand.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Farmers markets, schools, U-pick.

3-5 years down the line I’d like to integrate an animal sanctuary that would open to the community.

My end goal is to have a regenerative farm/homestead.


Current Use

Farmed organically for the last 5 years. I just purchased the property and intend to keep the operation going.


Available Water / Irrigation

Water rights to 750 sq of Lost Creek that flows year round alongside the property


Soil Type / Quality

Soil tested and amended yearly. Cover cropped and compost added every year. Minimal tillage. High quality, balanced soil with high organic matter.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Barn, workshop, stables, refrigeration, and other covered structures for equipment.


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Must provide own equipment.


What are you doing as a landholder to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your land and in your community?

I’m a friendly guy from Southern California - and also new to this - so a safe and welcoming environment is what I’m all about! I have local ties to the Dexter community and want to ease into this with an experienced farmer to work the land. I do plan on partitioning off a few small beds for myself - but this is mainly to learn. Most days I’ll be working from home (on the property) but my dog will definitely come say hello.
