We’ve got a small farm in Eastern Oregon with 219 acres, with a small creek running through it. A lot of it is semi-steep, arid, high-desert ground that suitable only for grazing. There’s about 50 acres of bottom ground, with about 25 already in grass pasture, 20-some in CREP until 2020, and then our yard and house and the outbuildings. We’ve got a great set of cattle-working corrals, a big chicken coop and a smaller brooder, we built a walk-in cooler and butcher facilities, and we’ve got wheel and hand line. There’s a 1/2 acre garden area and green house as well.
So far we’re running lowline/Aberdeen Angus cross cows, about 500 broiler chickens per year, pigs, and have had sheep in the past as well. I also breed a few good-quality AQHA each year, and would love to have someone else knowledgeable with horses around.
Our problem is that we both work full-time, we have kids in school and sports, and we could use some help. If our visions aligned, we’re looking at letting someone else use the land and facilities, in exchange for helping with fence, irrigation, upkeep, etc. There’s a spot to park an RV/camper, and it’d probably be an hour or two a night to help, during peak summer season.
We’d like to get as far off-grid as possible, so we’re looking at solar and some other options.
