Long-term lease, partnership, and/or future sale: 8 acres, 6.5 COID irrigated, 3/2 manufactured home, Bend, OR


Come live out your high desert farming dreams on this unique property in Bend.  15 minutes to downtown Bend or Redmond with beautiful view of the mountains from the farmhouse.  The front half 1/2 of the property is a 5 acre field and the back half is mixed use consisting of irrigated lawn, farmhouse w/stick built garage and family room additions, large doored barn w/ shop, shipping containers, greenhouse, chicken coop, and a rock outcropping camp like area.

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We are looking for a 3-10 year committment from someone who would like to rejuvenate, occupy, and steward the property to generate revenue and meaningful goods. We have some ideas (and buyers) with hemp, but we are definitely open to other uses (see long term vision). Getting certified organic through USDA or another alt-regenerative certification would be nice.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

We would like to find someone who has the time, energy, vision, and organization to develop an urban farm experience in this unique location and setting. We would be open to partnering on the business and either selling the land in the future to our farming partner or expanding the business, including acquiring adjacent property for expansion.

Possible ideas are:
- Farmstand (we are on a major farm road with lots of exposure),
- Educational component,
- Short term tent/RV/tiny home stays on back of property (hipcamp.com, etc)
- Photography
- Events (weddings, parties)
The property is just outside the urban growth boundary and is planned to be included within the UGB at the next expansion in a few years. We would love to keep it farmland and create an ag business to serve the Central Oregon community.
This could be a great long term opportunity for the right person/people!
