Land Seeker Description

I am a single father of 5 kids, 2 who are still living at home. A 17 year old boy and a nine year old girl. We currently live in Santa Maria California. For the last 20 years I have been working on two farms, one in Kansas and one in Arkansas. I am familiar with all aspects of irrigated (mostly water pivots) and dry-land farming. I am looking to relocate to Oregon and get back to the farm life. I love the quality of life that it provides. I currently live in a city with a population of 110,000 people and it seems far too crowded. I am willing to work with someone who needs help or even lease or lease to own property and housing.


What features of the property are essential?

All of these thins are nice: water rights, on-site sewer, on-site private well, irrigation structures, barns/structures, pasture, woodland, soil type, electricity, land that has been certified organic, but none of them are absolutely essential except electricity.
