2-30 acres of land for pasture/grazing in Oregon City


Description

We live on 40 acres of rolling pasture and oak trees with a natural spring where cattle grazed for many years before we purchased the property.  We are looking for someone with experienced in farming, soil improvement and/or grazing animals.  Our primary goal is improving our land through rotational grazing of cattle, sheep, goats, pigs and/or chickens.


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.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

To develop the land to be sustainable and self-sufficient following the principals of permaculture. Also, to start the process of silviculture with the help of the department of land conservation who have already inspected the land and made initial recommendations.


Current Use

Land is currently mostly covered with pasture and a small orchard. We keep two Nigerian dwarf goats, 5 chickens, 4 ducks, 2 cats, one dog, two bee colonies and a rotation of foster rabbits.


Available Water / Irrigation

We have an excellent well with spigots throughout the property and a natural spring that runs most of the year


Soil Type / Quality

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

Cattle equipment left by previous owner including a tractor with attachments


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Exclusive farm use land without water rights (although we do have a very good well and a natural spring)
