Land Seeker Description

Hello!

We are Eric, Amber, Sequoia and Marley (dog) We have been living in Bend for the past year and are looking to put down roots. We have experience in the trades (licensed contractor) arts and medium-scale gardening. Our dream is to one day build our own house off the grid and create our own homestead.

Currently we are looking for a piece of land to live on and to collaborate with like-minded individuals. Ideally we would like to garden (for food…maybe market) and raise small livestock (chickens, goats, pig). We own a 2015 Keystone Passport trailer that is in excellent condition and that we have lived in before on another small farm.

We are reaching out to make connections and see what may be a good fit for everyone involved. Ideally, we are looking for a work-trade arrangement, however we are open to other suggestions.

Thanks!
