lease 1-5 acres Newberg

Description

After 25 years of small-scale farming — dairy goats, sheep, vegetables, fruits, berries, herbs, vermiculture, poultry, bees — I need to turn to other things. I’m looking for someone interested in small scale organic farming who would be willing to bring my lovely farm back to productivity while caring for the place, including my dog, horse, donkey, and chickens as needed. The farm has mature fruit trees, old mixed forest, pasture, herbs, and raised beds that have been used and amended for a quarter century. Close to Portland and other markets. I hope to get a tiny home or trailer for rustic housing. Until then, there are two bedrooms in my basement.
