For Lease/Partnership: 1-39 Acres in Clackamas County


Description

We are looking for individuals interested in ecologically, socially, and economically regenerative farming systems to be a part of our 39-acre farm/camp located 35 miles east of Portland, near Sandy, OR. Our vision is to build a eco-agriculature system that will ultimately include approximately 8 acres of silvopasture/native oak/maple savanna, 2 acres of orchard/food forests, 2 acres of herb/flower gardens, 20 acres of native forest and wetland, and 4-6 camp sites. We are hoping to find individuals interested in doing farm work (e.g., animal management, orchard planting and maintenance, garden management, camping/event coordination, construction and maintenance work etc.) in trade for farm housing or space to set up your mobile housing unit. In addition to part-time work-trade, you could set up and operate your own enterprise on the farm. In particular, a native plant nursery, herb/flower business, mushroom operation, or a pastured animal (chicken, duck, geese, sheep, goat, hog) enterprise would be very compatible within the current farm structure.

We have 1-2 spots for a hook-up for a tiny house or other mobile housing unit. The hook-up provides a 20 amp circuit and a hose line connection to well water, but no septic – you must set up and maintain a composting toilet system. No phone, internet, or trash service provided.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Collaboratively design and implement a regenerative, closed-loop silvopasture/orchard production system. We have broad plans for farm layout, function and design, but want to work with partners to refine these concepts into detailed plans for a multi-partner, multi-enterprise system.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

A thoughtfully designed and carefully tended farm community and regenerative agri-ecosystem built to honor and cultivate wild beauty, sacred earth, and community values of cooperation and socially and ecologically responsible living.


Current Use

Most of the property - about 20 acres - is rewilding native forest (15-20 year old trees), wetland, and prairie. There's a fence around a 12-acre area in which we have 1.5 acres of annual vegetable production, fruit/nut tree plantings, and berry fields. Animals could be pastured within the 12-acre fence or surrounding areas.


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Access to farm shop and shared/communal spaces.


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Tractor, truck, and basic farm equipment available.


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production

Because of our elevation (1600 feet), hot weather vegetable crops do not do well here, but leafy greens and herbs thrive.
