Open to profit sharing, partnership, or lease, with profit share partnership preferred.
Housing is available on-site (either in farmhouse or in vintage trailer with self-contained kitchen and bathroom). If farm managers are living on-farm then worktrade for animal chores is preferred.

Neighboring property is an open-pollinated, organic specialty seed farm. Annual vegetable production needs to be responsive to their crop plan to prevent cross-pollination. Cut flowers and fully diversified vegetable production is not suitable for this location.
We recognize that we are stewarding land on Kalapuya territory. We acknowledge our settler-colonial heritage and the ways that we as farmers continue to benefit from white privilege. Structural racism and exploitation are embedded in every corner of our imperialist, capitalist society. The organic industry and local food movements have their own inequities and injustices.
We have several food equity programs built into our current farming operations, including sliding scale pricing for our CSA, grant-funded no-cost distribution through community and institutional partnerships, and and a real tax that for reparation payments.
