Lease/Partnership: 5-10 Acres Bend, OR – Irrigation – Power

Description

I am looking for farmers interested in co-working my property. It is a beautiful piece of land next to the reservoir and miles of BLM trails.

Two tracts of ~ 6 acres each, with two separate irrigation headgates for flood irrigation and three ponds.

Central Electric Co-op upgrading power to property, to be completed April, 2021.

Front is pasture, back used to be an apple orchard.

Ideally I am looking for folks who are interested in co-developing the entire property with me, but am willing to consider to two separate arrangements for the front and back. There is a lot of potential that just needs vision and some hard work.

I am open to cash leases, partnerships, and work for trades.

There is no housing available with this arrangement, but an RV or camping is possible. Let’s talk.

Creativity welcome!

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Start cultivating smaller plots of herbs and vegetables, possibly orchard in back.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

Create a working sustainable, biodynamic farm with a mixture of crops (vegetables, flowers, herbs, fruit) and small animals (chicken, sheep for dairy and fiber). I would love to create a CSA from produce and flowers we grow. I am a teacher and could envision a farm education program and community classes using products from the farm for creative purposes, e.g. honey and candles from the bees, spinning and knitting from the wool, cooking from the garden, drawings from inks made from the flowers and herbs.
