FOR SALE: Pasture based eco farmstead with simple, elegant designer home and view. Hedgerows, edible perennials and wildlife conservation pond in place. Easy access on good roads 20 miles from Portland. Call Joe Reitzug 503-380-0246


Description

A south-facing, gently sloping, scenic, ten acre, mostly pasture, “polyculture farm-in-waiting” in Oregon’s Tualatin River Valley, 20 miles SW of downtown Portland on excellent roads. A detailed “homestead” productivity and resilience design plan by Bullock Brothers’ Terraphoenix Design was developed for this site.

Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

Pray for a miracle to get smart, financially "rich" buyers who will lovingly steward this land the way it deserves, and everybody will all live happily ever after.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

A highly productive system of stacked functions that provides for multiple people to prosper and be a model for others, ideally. The groundwork is laid for resource-sharing with neighbors and other farmers. But, of course, if you buy it, you get to do what you want.


Current Use

In 2020 mostly as a home with land for people with pet horses. One farmer family is leasing about a quarter acre for family and market vegetables. A bee keeper keeps several hives onsite in exchange for honey for the homeowners. Productive hedgerows, a wildlife conservation pond and perennials are helping the land balance and produce food.


Available Water / Irrigation

No agriculture type water rights (quite possibly available from neighbor, though) but plenty of well water for pastured livestock and small scale dryland, no-till veg/field crop production. Additional irrigation rights can be purchased from Washington County water master. Buyer to do due diligence.


Soil Type / Quality

75% Quatama loam, 25% Woodburn Silt loam according to NRCS Custom Soil Resource Report


Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

barn, workshop, covered shed storage


Farm Equipment Available for Use, Sale or Lease

Would consider selling to purchaser: tractor, pick up truck, RTV with dump bed, lots of tools and equipment, portable fencing, large animal pasture shelters, horse trailer, harrow, stock water troughs, etc


Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production
