up to five acres for lease near Stayton, OR – potential to rent farmhouse on site

Description

Our 40 acre farm and orchard has several unused acres for lease and available in 2019. Our farmhouse is currently rented but will be available in August 2019. Our preference is to rent land and house to the same person.

The acreage can be certified organic anytime and much of the farms land is already certified. There are water rights on the entire farm and irrigation water is abundant and fairly easy to access. Farmers with the right training and experience may also be able to rent to farm equipment.

The house is a large three bedroom/two bath with additional indoor spaces.


Owner’s Short Term Vision for the Property

We would like the currently marginally used acres on the property farmed in a more intensive manor. There are about 11 acres that are underutilized and seven of those could be quickly moved into more intensive management.


Owner’s Long Term Vision for the Property

We would like to see and even more highly diversified farming operation utilizing the land effectively here.

Buildings and Structures Available for Farm Use

Any Restrictions That Could Limit Agricultural Production
