Seeking 1 or less Acres for small herb and vegetable farm.


?

Land Seeker Description

I am currently living in Santa Cruz, CA working at a small organic fruit/vegetable farm. I started my first business this year creating healing salves using infused herbal oils both wild foraged and homegrown. Im very easy going and work well with others. I am looking for a piece of land to lease or work trade for in northern oregon to farm medicinal and edible herbs/flowers/vegetables.


What features of the property are essential?

Features that I feel would be essential for what I want to do would be water rights, shed structure, and open space.


Describe your farming experience

I am started learning about organic farming about 3 years ago. 2 years ago i started going to a local ecovillage and helping with their farm, learning a lot. In the winter 2020 I started preparing my own vegetable garden and grew throughout the 2021 season. I started working at an organic fruit farm during the summer and have been farming there since.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

My short term plan is to grow herbs to use for my business Sage Oasis and vegetables to sell at a local market or through CSA. I am interested in growing my business and creating a foundation to be able to grow the herbs I use for products. I am also planning on learning as much as I can while farming and being open to new knowledge and experience.


What are your long term goals

My long term plan is to be able to have a space where I can grow food and herbs for myself and to sell to provide for my needs. Another long term plan I have is to learn more about land/water restoration and forest care taking.


Describe your housing needs

My partner and I currently live in our van so we would ideally be looking to park on the property but it is not a necessity.
