A unique and rare opportunity to participate on a magical homestead property on the upper South Umpqua river. Deemed a “hot spot” of biological diversity in the fy2008 land acquisition request under the land and water conservation fund.Many mushrooms,herbs,medicinals, and wild edibles grow naturally on the property. It has an existing fenced 60×110 feet garden area with six composting bays.A greenhouse with more planned. Existing fruit trees . A very large pond 1-2 acres with hydroponic possibilities.
The Owners are semi retired and live onsite. We are looking for an energetic individual or a couple with a botanical background and experience in growing food. They must be open to innovative and alternative methods of food production while being focused on sustainability and environmentally conscious. The property is off grid and produces electricity through a variety of means.Internet connection is available although the nearest neighbor is miles downstream.
A mile of river,swimming hole, creeks,a large island,meadows,timber (some old growth), and too much more to list . Wildlife is abundant and diverse, including active beaver ponds. There are several trails in and along the transition zone from the floodplain to the forest. Retired Owners are onsite and have a sawmill ,skid steer,excavator,crane and other equipment .There are several rv’s currently on the property. A building permit is in hand and the pad has been cut. A septic was installed 3 yrs ago. Pondweed grows abundantly and is being considered as a crop. This property is viewed by indigenous people as a “healing place”.Ideal to practice shinrin yoku “forest bathing” with serveral secluded spots both inland and along the river for camping or other activities.The property is miles from the nearest neighbor yet close to national forest trails , attractions and outdoor activities ranging from passive bird watching to rock climbing. Long term goals include but are not limited to a farm to table bed and breakfast.Many other possibilities and opportunities exist on this very unique property.
