5 acres Dedicated to Food Farming in Ashland

Description

Breathtaking 28 acre hillside farm in Ashland, Oregon. Currently raising a couple of choice heritage pigs and bountiful production of pterodactyl chickens for meat production. 100% off grid solar powered property. The land is very private, yet close to town. Includes complimentary security team of endless LGD and gated security thanks to boomer neighbors with NO LIVES who drank the kool-aid.

Lots of opportunities to grow food and establish your own small scale, sustainable, commercial farm and contribute to our local food system.

The land is zoned EFU. Priority goes to inquiries with drought tolerant farming practices:

WE DO NOT HAVE ANY TID WATER RIGHTS NOR DESIRE PURCHASING THE CHEMICAL RIDDEN WATER OR UTILIZING DOMESTIC WELL. YOU TRUCK IN WATER AND STORE.

Optional buildings on property available for farm use, storage. There is a 30×30 greenhouse up and available for use, as well as 2 more that are not set up. There is some equipment available for use ranging from a skid steer to irrigation lines.

A brand new beautiful, towering 3 story home with views to Table Rock will erect in 2021/22 on the land and available to rent along with farm space.

Open to many different production options for the property but the key to our heart is to support local food in the Rogue Valley and restore ecosystem, improving soil health by sequestering carbon by way of organic, holistic farming.

We are a small female run, family business.

Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

This can easily be managed with the right person who has experience in hillside farming with emphasis on establishing vegetation which addresses erosion control. Property is located through an easement with neighbors who don't farm. Location is surrounded by "quaint" Ashland hobby farmers.
