For lease: 3-4 acres in Creswell (south of Eugene)


Description

We have four acres for lease at our residential property. The acreage is flat, grassy, and south-facing. We are 15 minutes away from the Eugene Saturday Market or the South Valley Farmers Market in Cottage Grove.

We are looking to lease the land for small-medium livestock, as well as market gardening heirloom vegetables, fruits, mushrooms, botanicals, herbs, if interested. The ideal farmer will have experience in permaculture, biodynamic, or organic farming practices.

Unfortunately, living arrangements on-site/in an RV are not an option due to county zoning restrictions.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

- Install water storage tanks
- Amend land as needed for future planting


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

To find a farmer that uses organic practices that plans to maintain a lease for longer than 12 months.


Current Use

The land is currently pasture that has been mostly untouched, other than mowing, since our purchase 5 years ago.


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

There is a spring-fed cistern on the property that the previous owner used for decades to water their vegetable garden, however the water has not been tested and there isn't currently any kind of pump to retrieve the water. It would be ideal to put this water to use and store it for use during dry months.
