2-30 acres of pasture for farming and/or grazing in Oregon City


Description

We’ve owned our 40 acres of rolling pasture, forest land and seasonal creek in Oregon City for almost a year now and would love to partner with someone experienced in pasture management, rotational grazing and/or no-till farming using minimal irrigation.   We currently rotate our 3 cows, 5 hogs, 2 goats and a flock of chickens on pasture and maintain a good sized family vegetable garden and orchard.  We don’t need to make a profit from the land as my husband and I work full time but really could use the help and knowledge of an experienced farmer.  Our primary goal is to be responsible stewards of this lovely property using natural techniques to promote growth of native plants, trees and grasses.

We do also have about 100 bee boxes on the property maintained by professional bee keepers.

 


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

To find a knowledgeable farming partner that can help us make a plan to best care for our land. We think this will most likely involve rotational grazing of livestock, permaculture techniques, bees, rainwater harvesting, etc.

To care for the land by improving the soil, eradicating invasive weeds and promoting native plants. It has potential for lots of uses and we are open to ideas.

We have an excellent well with spigots throughout the property that we can irrigate 2 acres of land with . We also have two creeks, one of which runs much of the year

Bornstedt and Jory soils which are considered mid tier soils. I just had soil testing done and can forward the results if requested.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Hay barn with food troughs.
Huge indoor riding arena with 4 stalls
Small green house


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

What are you doing as a landholder to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your land and in your community?
