5 acres near beautiful Estacada – lease, partnership

Description

5 beautiful, forest-deferred acres with small creek. Chicken house in small orchard with established apple, pear, plum, & cherry trees. Building blueberry & raspberry crops. Possible uses for herb production, garlic farming, forest farming, mushrooms. Small animal barn currently houses 5 goats. Only organic methods will be allowed. Property houses 4 humans, 1 dog, 1 cat & the goats. 1 adult educator, 1 adult non-profit administrator/yoga instructor & 2 teens. On-site housing possible – small cabin exists (no running water) which can be improved upon or open to tiny home. Property is quiet & secluded, yet 7 minutes from the town of Estacada & the Clackamas River. 45 minutes to Portland for big city delights. We are looking for someone to help advance our vision of small farm development. Our teens are not interested & adult work schedules as well as physical & financial resources are stagnating our efforts. Open to co-development or lease options. Bring your ideas!
