25 Organic Acres in Junction City for Lease or Partnership

Description

About the property

The property is a 25-acre parcel with water rights, a well, and electricity. It is two miles to downtown Junction City and 13 miles to downtown Eugene with frontage on Highway 36. No chemicals have been applied to the soil since 2010. Land is mostly well drained silty clay loam. There are a few acres of flat woodlands that seasonally floods.

About the Owners

We are two professionals and amateur farmers. We farmed the property for four years when we first purchased it. We had a small vegetable CSA and raised egg layers, meat chickens, and pork. We have experience managing and marketing small businesses, however we are both committed to existing projects and do not have time for daily involvement.

Potential Business Arrangements

We have access to capital and can fund startup costs. We can also cover payments on startup loans. We are open to negotiating a variety of business arrangements. However, we prefer an arrangement that gives the farmer motivation to be creative, industrious, and a good land steward. Potential arrangements include:

  • Long term lease, (ie you own the business)
  • Equity partnership,
  • Subcontracting, or
  • Owner-employee (you are the employee).

About the You

We are seeking someone who is entrepreneurial, has farm experience, is passionate about sustainable agriculture, and is committed to the local community. Basic business knowledge is a plus, but not strictly necessary as we can contribute to accounting, bookkeeping, marketing, and legal needs. However, good business sense is important. We are flexible on the partnership arrangement and are willing to consider both ownership and non-ownership arrangements. We encourage potential partners to bring their own ideas about potential crops and business models.
