“Holistic Life Farm” near Clatskanie Oregon, (Columbia County)

Description

If you are looking to embrace a homesteading lifestyle without having to buy property, we would welcome a visit to our farm.

Presently, we have one Caretakers who live full time on the property, but we have room for an additional individual or couple to join our self-sufficient community. There are plenty of possibilities and space for you to integrate your own homesteading/farming vision into ours. The property has a lot of potential with lots of infrastructure already in place

We, the owners, still work out of state, but are normally on the property 2-3 weeks per month. Our goal is to holistically farm full-time within the next 5-7 years and be 100% self sufficient using the resources on the farm. We emphasize being part of our local community.

There is presently a variety of farm animals and garden space and greenhouses in place, which makes this a perfect place to embrace back to basics living.

Living arrangements can be worked out if we can work out a long term, mutually beneficial arrangement. For example, we would be willing to obtain a RV for you to rent or make payments on for living quarters.

A semi-retired or retired person who is looking to begin a new chapter in life would fit in well.

The farm is presently supported by our “off farm” work income. Our present idea for a future farm income stream is renting our house through Air B&B when we are off the farm as well as creating additional living spaces to rent through Hipcamp, VRBO, and Air B&B. We will be in need of additional help to manage our guests.

A possible opportunity for someone wanting to escape city living to work remotely from the farm, as we do have fast internet service.

Beautiful, remote setting with gorgeous views, great neighbors and community support. Spectacular sunsets, pristine air (we get the sea breeze from the coast), fresh produce, milk, eggs and grass fed meats.

We are a 1 hour drive up I-5 from Portland and 35 miles from the coast.
