For lease, fruit trees and berries in Camas, Washington, approx 5 acres

Description

 

 

 

I’m posting our info where ever there is a possibility of a younger than me farmer with the skills and energy required to farm and market. We have a long term farm worker and myself doing everything, or not, as sometimes happens. We intend to continue living on the property, retaining the trees and fenced gardens around our home, leaving the cottage and mature trees for you.

The land is 100% organic and has been since 2003. We had organic certification for one year and let it go, though as it was explained to me, it is easily re obtained. There is a second home on the property, 1300 square feet, which could be leased to a farmer. In addition, there is a full hookup Tiny Home/ RV space on the land, currently rented out, sorry!

Our land is on Prune hill, just ten minutes from the Camas Farmer’s market and twenty minutes from the Vancouver Farmer’s market. There is a large enough population on this hill alone to support a CSA. There is a Natural Grocer’s market just 10 minutes from here. Their all organic produce section featured produce from a local organic farmer pre pandemic.

There is a barn on our land which could also be available for lease. We are on Camas city water and sewer. The more traditional such as apple, blueberries, crabapple, quince, grapes, and pears were planted in the 1940’s, while the less traditional, including raspberries, figs, persimmons and kiwis were planted in the last fifteen years.

If you know anyone who may be interested or other organizations where my posting might find the right connections, please feel free to share this posting.
