Family seeking farmland in Jackson County


?

Land Seeker Description

I have been a science teacher for the last 10+ years (biology, environmental science, etc.) and I am incredibly passionate about regenerative farming, biodynamic practices and helping bring back the local small farm food system. My vision is to start a small family farm and to get a chance to try out all the practices and ideas I have been very passionate about over the last several years as well creating educational components for helping others  interested in regenerative practices in a small farm setting. My family and I love southern Oregon and the outdoors and try to spend as much time outside as we can. Our dream is to own a small farm in the future in the rogue valley or Applegate area.


What features of the property are essential?

Land with water rights, housing


Describe your farming experience

I have several years of backyard gardening experience. My husband (who is in marketing/copy writing) has 1 year or organic farming experience.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Our plan is to start regenerative farming practices with the land we take on and to make an educational component/social media platform for outreach and education. Our process (the ups and downs) would be logged/documented, written about through articles and a podcast for others who are interested in learning about the process and what goes into it as well educational outreach.

The soil type, water available and elevation will determine what will be grown.


What are your long term goals

Our long term plans are to own a small farm that incorporates regenerative farming and biodynamic practices.


Describe your housing needs

We currently live in Talent, OR. We are a blended family so our kids (4 elementary age children) live with us for one week and alternate back and fourth with their other parents. We are seeking a house with land.
