Seeking 1 acre for farming and housing a tiny house

Land Seeker Description

Hi,

I was in the food and beverage industry for a few years before I decided to take a break and help an old colleague on his farm. I committed myself to coming everyday for the whole summer as a volunteer. After a few weeks they hired me instead and I began to learn the ways of farming. It was life giving to say the least. It made me feel connected to my past and the way my ancestors have lived for hundreds of years and it birthed a new passion I never thought I would be interested in. I stayed at that farm for four years.

My husband and I just built a tiny house and are looking for land for lease to get the ball rolling on some of our long-term dreams. Gardening, farming, plants, soil – these are things that will forever be a part of our lives. We have a STRONG interest in regenerative farming, which we just came across learning about this last summer. We would love to start putting some of these practices to work and seeing how the land transforms and flourishes.


What features of the property are essential?

On-site well water and electricity for the tiny house. Septic would be nice, but not entirely necessary.


Describe your farming experience

I worked on a 5-acre farm in Gresham for four years before I left to take care of my one year old. We had a small crew, 4-5 people per season with volunteers here and there. All organic practices but not certified. I was taught how to manage every aspect on the farm.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

My short term goals would be to slowly move back into farming and to learn about regenerative farming practices and to be able to apply those practices where we are living.


What are your long term goals

Long term goals would be to buy land to raise bison on. We feel called to regenerative farming but have a lot of learning to do.


Describe your housing needs

We have a 32x10 tiny house that will need a hose hookup from an on-site well and an outlet where we can plug in the tiny house (20amps rated).
