Applegate Valley (Southern Oregon): Access to Acreage Zoned EFU with Great Water Rights

Description

Acreage on a farm in the Applegate Valley may be available for the right individual and/or farm couple looking to use their skills in farming / animal husbandry.  There are outbuildings, water, electric that are currenly in use but may be available depending on the scope of the individual’s desired farming operation and how that meshes with current use of the land.

My family and I live on the property, so currently there is no housing available.  But this will change when we transition “off the farm” in the future.

I am actively farming the land but am looking to possibly pursue other business activities and non-profit work.  Thus I am starting the search for an individual or couple that is looking to get on to some land but may not have the means to secure land for their farming plans and goals.

Please let me know:

  • About yourself and what you are looking to do as a farmer
  • Your level of experience in farming
  • How many acres you are looking for
  • How you plan to support and finance your operation (solely from farm operations or other means)
  • What your plan for housing is.
  • What other experience and skills you have that would be useful on a farm
  • Let me know about any volunteer work / community service work you are or have been involved with

Open to different options and arrangements for the use of land for farming (lease for cash, partnership, etc.).  Most important thing to me is looking for the right person(s) with a business model and plan that best matches with the land, acreage, water rights and infrastructure that are available.

(location of the farm shown on Google maps is just a general location.)
