For lease: 88 acres in Silverton


We had an extraordinary experience a few years back with a group of young people who came to live on the farm for a few months that turned into lifetime friendships. We also had an experience that ended badly when we had someone live here who was too dissimilar from us. We like to eat and drink and dance in the living room. We are somewhat disorganized and housekeeping doesn’t always come first!

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Putting food forest close to home and using permaculture principles to work around rest of farm. Farm owners switching more to apiculture from critter keeping as we age. Finding the right farm partners to lease farm as we age.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Same as above except we plan to retire from our jobs within 10 years and according to our interests and health will likely want to live in town in 15 or so years. Not interested in selling but rather in leasing the farm at that poing.
