For live-in lease/trade: 1 acre near Seal Rock


I’m looking for the right individual or couple to help me turn a rural homestead into a small farm in the Oregon Coast Range, near Seal Rock. Rooms available. Terms negotiable. Pets welcome.

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

I want to convert the house/greenhouse, and up to an acre of land around the house into a productive farm. I have identified the areas to be farmed, and begun land clearing. Some areas are already clear or covered in grass. Other areas will require intensive shrub removal (mostly blackberry and/or salal). I plan to get some goats to help with this.

Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

This place would like to become a healing space for hosting retreats and group activities -- such as skills workshops, meditation, yoga, and support groups.

Current Use

This is currently a residential homestead on a forested hillside in the Coast Range. There is about 1/2 acre of clearing around the house, that is currently grass lawn, a few raised beds, some berries, and rhododendrons. Another 1/4 acre is clear of trees, but full of blackberries. I'm planning to put a few goats in this area.
The house is large enough for 5 adults, but I currently live here alone with my dog. Total acreage of the property is over 60 acres that is shared with a few other homesteads. Most of the property is mature forest with abundant native plant and wildlife species.

Available Water / Irrigation

Water is drawn from a perennial spring on the property. It is not public, and there is no water right. But this system has been in place and active for the past 45 years. Irrigation-intensive farming may require additional water system infrastructure. Rainwater catchment from house and adjacent shop building would be possible. Both buildings have metal roofs.
