East Coast Family looking to relocate and start our dream of starting a farmstead


?

Land Seeker Description

We are a family from the east coast looking to relocate to Oregon to start an orchid farm. We will be utilizing the Permaculture principles and plan on creating an ecosystem on our farm in addition to the orchids we will be growing for market. We are hoping the property already has greenhouses on the property, but if not we will purchase. We also plan to utilize the land for some livestock, in addition to a family garden, and orchard. We are hoping to find land with natural water sources such as a stream, or pond on the property.


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, pasture, woodland, land where chemicals have not been used, natural water source.


Describe your farming experience

We have been doing small backyard gardens for years. We are currently living in an apartment, so we are now contained to containers on our patio.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Following the principles of Permaculture, our first year on the land we plan on observing and interacting with it. We will be setting up our personal garden, as well as rotationally grazed chickens, pigs, and possibly a cow or two. The following year we will expand our livestock as well as begin our planting for our orchid farm.


What are your long term goals

Our long term plan (5+ years) is to either buy the property that we lease, if that’s an option or find land that we can purchase.


Describe your housing needs

We would love for the property to have a house we could rent, but we are also open to purchasing a camper for the right property.


What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

We are a friendly, open, loving family who believe that everyone deserves love and kindness.
