Looking to Lease, Lease to own, 0.5-2 acres, PORTLAND

Land Seeker Description

I’m looking for approximately one acre of land with quality soil, full sun and water to develop a sustainably farmed CSA and direct to market vegetable farm.  We will focus on heirloom varietals and unique, climate appropriate varietals of European heritage that promote diversity in eating and cooking for our clients.  Ideal situation would be a small shed/barn on site and pre-existing infrastructure like hoop houses that could be part of the lease.  Most of the farming will be done with hand tools and this will look and feel more like a dense European market garden than farm.

Please contact me with any clarifying questions or give me a call to discuss what you have a your goals.
