Lease .5-2 acres in Multnomah/Clackamas/Washington counties


Land Seeker Description

I am new to farming, over 3 years and I have 1 year owning and operating my own farm. I want my farm to produce calorie rich vegetables i.e. legumes, tubers, as well as vegetables that are familiar to people from Mexico and Central America. For this to happen, I will need to put up multiple hoop houses. I am looking for .5 acres -1.5 acres to begin with. The land needs to have water access ( I can provide the actual irrigation) and electricity. I also need soil that is suitable to growing vegetables. I am very serious about farming and want to make this not only a career for myself but an enterprise that actually helps get food to people.

Thank you for considering

What features of the property are essential?

on site well, functioning irrigation, electricity
