Access to water, electricity or the possibility of installing electric, a space for my walk-in dehydrator (small walk in cooler), office space for value added herbal products is preferred but not necessary.


Describe your farming experience

I have been farming herbs and flowers for 6+ seasons. I've managed 1+ acres of certified organic farmland for 5 seasons as owner. We grow 40+ species of herbs and sell them both fresh and dried to customers in the Portland area and beyond.

After 5 seasons, I have an established customer base and ship my dried herbs and herbal apothecary products across the country.

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

My short term goals are to successfully transition my farm business to a new property, obtain organic certification, and continue growing my business.
