Lease, creative solution – 20 – 100 acres in Clackamas County


?

Land Seeker Description

We are a small farm located in Boring, OR. We have leased land since 2014 and it is being sold so we are looking for one or more long-term lease opportunities. We raise angus-angus-x beef, hogs and chickens using rotational grazing and permaculture methods. We partner with a very large organic produce company to feed our animals organic produce scraps as well as organic spent grain. We do not use pesticides or chemicals of any kind. We are looking for pasture and wooded land. We would happily install fencing. We currently use solar/battery operated fences (and some permanent fencing). We would need access to some water for animals. We look forward to working with a land owner and to be excellent land stewards.


What features of the property are essential?

we need water availability for livestock. If there are electricity/barns/structures is a plus (we can build our own movable structures and use solar/battery power). Existing fencing is great or landowner must be open to some fence being installed. Would prefer land where chemicals have not been used but it is not necessary for it to be organic.
