My partner and I are seeking 6-10 plus acres of tillable farm land with well established and non-threatened water rights within the Applegate Valley (southern Oregon). Ideal location would be anywhere from McKee Bridge to Murphy, or in Willams. Any existing infrastructure is a huge plus but not required. Looking to begin lease September 2020 for full production come Spring 2021. WE WILL NOT BE GROWING OR PRODUCING ANY INDUSTRIAL HEMP, CBD, CANNABIS, THC..etc.
The ability to irrigate with well established, non-threatened water rights is a must. This includes electricity to a pump site. Pump, lines, pipe is a plus but not necessary. Barns, potable water, fence, etc. would be great but we are willing to invest and/or improvise. We currently own a 45 HP Tractor with 8 accompanying field implements ranging from tillage to cultivation and a green house.
We are a 35 year old couple farming veggies and flowers in the Applegate Valley. Patrick has 15 years experience (10 managerial) working ALL aspects of farm management. He has grown vegetables, herbs, fruits, flowers on farms ranging from 3 - 50 acres and currently manages a successful local farm. Chelsea has 10 years experience running and operating her own business. She grows flowers and has run a successful flower CSA in the Rouge Valley.
To startup a personally and finically successful vegetable/cut flower operation. Whether that means a long term lease or something shorter that acts more as an incubator farm.
To create a well established farm operation that is financial, personally, and as much as possible, ecologically sustainable.
Not needed as we own a home-base property on Thompson Creek.
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
