24-year-old woman in search of a partner for an art farm outside of Corvallis, Oregon. Specifically, I would like to co-manage the farm with someone. The farm has just been start, so visioning, business-planning, etc. could all be done in partnership. The farm is 2 acres and currently has dairy sheep, geese, chickens, and ducks on it. There are also fruit trees and grapes an large areas for gardening.
I want to establish a commune / collective where those living together work on the farm together. My hope is that those in the house could make decisions on the farm together and split the farm work and profits with each other. I am also open to people living off of the farm and co-farming on it.
The house on the property is a large, modern 4-bedroom house. Each of the rooms are a good size and light. There is a dedicated arts / crafts room as well as a garage. Inside the house, there are currently three dogs of small, medium, and large size, and one cat.
I want the farm to be a place that can benefit the community, both through the things we produce on the farm and by being a place for the community to gather. I enjoy bringing people together for gatherings, doing art together, and playing games (like Dungeons and Dragons). Community, creativity, and intentional connection are really at the heart of what I want for this farm
My vision for the property is to have a place for care of the earth, care of animals, and care of the community. I want the farm to be a place for people to be able to connect with nature and each other. Currently, I am having a little event with reflection and art built into it every month hosted at the house. I would like to have a co-living situation where roommates are able to live together with common interests of farming and being creative.
In the long term, I would like to have the farm provide nutritious food for the community, as well as chances to learn new skills and work with the land. I would like to continue the core parts of the short term vision and have the farm feel like a collective effort as opposed to me being in a boss role.
The land currently has a pasture with six dairy sheep (East Friesian) on it, as well as two geese, five egg-layer chickens, and four ducks. There are also some Christmas trees growing.
Public water, with a seasonal creek. There is also a non-functioning well.
4-stall barn, garage
Basic gardening tools.
I am very invested in creating a safe and welcoming environment for people of diverse backgrounds. I myself am a BIPOC individual and spend a lot of time in my work and in my art thinking about identity and equity. I try to maintain open communication with everyone and make a place where people can be seen or heard for who they are. I am anti-capitalist and try to resist the systems of oppression that dominate our lives and stand in solidarity with those who are even more affected by those systems of oppression than I am.
