For Lease: 4 acres in Beavercreek (near Oregon City)

Description

Our eight-acre organic farm in Beavercreek, OR (southeast of Oregon City) includes two fenced pastures (total of about four acres) that we are no longer using. For several years we raised lamb for local sale, but because we’re getting older we are no longer breeding sheep.

We hope a local farmer, perhaps one who is starting out, would be able to use these fields for raising small livestock. There is a large field shelter (accessible from either field), a line of fir trees for shade and a water trough. Sustainability is important to us, so we would need an agreement as to the number of animals placed in the pastures.

We welcome BIPOC farmers. Rent would be negotiable, with the option of working a few hours each month in exchange for part of the rent.
