Lease Small Urban Farm close to Downtown Portland

Description

My land was an organic CSA/urban farm for 15 years. I have approximately 3/4 acre with at least a half acre of useable raised beds, although it needs much weeding currently. The farm area and house back up to woodland, which backs up to Audubon Society lands and drains down to Balch Creek. There is a chicken coop (I still sell eggs), goat barn and fenced area for them, 4 large cinder block compost bins, irrigation system in place. I have an orchard with mature apple, pear, and plum trees, four different grape vines, cane berries, 16 blueberry bushes, dedicated herb beds, a shed with all my tools and equipment, and a fully equipped small greenhouse down at our house, 300 feet or so below the farm area. Also have a honey beehive, not active, and all my bee equipment, as well as a humongous population of mason bees. My website is still operational: www.amaranthproduce.com.
