We honor that the land we steward lies in the ancestral lands of the Clackamas, Confederated Tribes of the Grand Ronde, and Confederated Tribes of the Siletz peoples.
We are looking for individuals seeking to build ecologically, socially, and economically regenerative farming systems to be a part of our 39-acre farm/forest community located 35 miles east of Portland, near Sandy, OR. Our vision is to build an eco-agriculture system that includes raising pastured animals, growing native plant nursery stock, and hosting 6-8 camping sites. We are hoping to find individuals interested in operating independent compatible enterprise(s) on the farm. In particular, a fruit tree 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. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
continue to rehabilitate soil, water, mineral, and energy systems; grow a multi-layered food forest/orchard system; regenerate pastures through intensive rotational grazing; rewild the forest ecosystem; build a thriving farm community
