Land Seeker Description

Seeking 4 – 10 acre parcel in Hood River Valley for future vegetable farm. Current enthusiastic Hood River couple seeking opportunity to bring sustainable and potentially organic farming practice to site. Agricultural with residential option zoning needs. Irrigation or water rights essential. Business planning underway; looking for opportunity to build long term plan with current land owner. Flexible on terms.


What features of the property are essential?

Irrigation or water rights essential, access to electricity and sewer desired. Soil does not need to be certified organic, given farming practice plan.


Describe your farming experience

Current homestead farmers with extensive business experience, looking to exit current career in corporate marketing and medical sales careers. Looking to build business opportunity around sustainable farming practices. Currently invested in aquaponics operation, creating an indoor closed ecosystem for growing that combines fish and vegetable propagation. This method is typically eligible for organic certification and due to its controlled-environment, allows for year round growing.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

Designated site would need road access for light vehicular traffic and include some grading and gravel and/or concrete spread for the foundation and placement of commercial greenhouse(s). Electricity and running water essential.


What are your long term goals

Designated site may eventually include multiple commercial greenhouses, light vehicular traffic and parking for public. System will create a clean, balanced farming practice--and offer opportunity for outdoor farming extension using nutrients from internal system.


Describe your housing needs

Currently have a second home in The Heights of Hood River, so not necessary right away. As business grows, we would like to live permanently on the farm itself, so eventually this may be a factor, but can work with the current land owner on terms.
