Fun Family Seeking Housing & Land to Farm; Open to Creative Opportunities


?

Land Seeker Description

We are looking for an opportunity for our family (2 adults, 2 children, and 2 sheepdogs) to begin farming. Our background is mostly in the business and retail industries, where Julianne specializes and consults in Supply Chain and Operations Management Practices. Our family has been growing vegetables for farmers markets, consulting for garden planning and amending (we specialize in a Korean style of natural farming), and also working with a local orchard owner since moving to the Portland area 3.5 years ago.

We have great ideas and a solid business plan, and are incredibly hard workers, but we do not have the capital or property to get started on our own. We still need to rent at the moment, but are absolutely interested in options to purchase. We are looking for an opportunity to be on 2+ acres to work and have housing with at least 3 bedrooms. We are open to a property as large as 20 acres of land with up to 3 single family homes. We are looking for creative options, but also searching within a $1,500-$5,000/month range, depending on dwellings, property, and amenities available.


What features of the property are essential?

Land: 2-20 Acres
Housing: At least 3 bedrooms
Reliable water source
Barn/Steel Fab Building a plus!
