Land Seeker Description

Hi, I’m Autumn.  Passionate, energetic, NERD – in love with my Oregon way of live.

My Oregon Roots:  Born in Tillamook; raised in Port Orford.  WAY before that, Captain of the Tillamook Cheese Factory’s – Morning Star (Ship on Label), Aksel Anderson would sail up the Oregon coast, into the treacherous mouth of the Columbia delivering milk and dairy products.  ..This was my Paternal Great-Grandfather:  an immigrant from Norway.  My Maternal Great-Grandma was the first person with a colored TV in Port Orford, she owned her own shoe-repair business, and wired her house for electricity – by herself.

What I want:  To cultivate – care for – and celebrate the fertility of Oregon via a Hazelnut Orchard.

Let’s Get Started and Meet-Up for Coffee!  …We have a Hazelnut Orchard to Develop.

Describe your farming experience

Family Friend has an 8MM operation in central WA - not Hazelnuts. but that's where I learned I love this work - Orchard Health. Harvest operation participant, mostly.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Shorter: Shadow current Farmers

Mid-Term: Buy land in the year 2021 -- as the federal tax breaks for capital investments advantages will dry up in 2022.


What are your long term goals

BEP: Stretch Goal = 5 years. Modest = 8 years.

Land hosts small Parking Lot + Small General Store to Public: Bees, Honey, Mushrooms + Truffles? . Host Brew-Taps, Live-Music (Small Stage); Host Food-Trucks; Host Cider-Press Friends. Model Bells Brewery, in Kalamazoo of Michigan.


Describe your housing needs

I'll need a room while on Property - I travel from the Carolinas (Husband is a Pilot) - and getting anywhere really isn't a problem. Plenty of Friends all over Oregon, so this isn't a MUST in all locations.
