My husband & I (and our 1.5 year old dog Hazel) are hoping to foster a mutually beneficial relationship with an experienced farmer in order to help each other achieve our dreams! We help farm your land while also getting to create our own food forest.
He has more farming experience than me (commercial tree farming, greenhouse nursery management, irrigation management, Master Gardener program at OSU, poultry & vegetable farming) and will lead the labor force. However I fully intend to be involved in the work as well! My experience is limited to small-scale greenhouse operations, poultry, & backyard gardening.
I’ve recently transitioned from working from home to a full-time position in Salem to cover our living expenses. My husband will be free to farm the land full-time. I will join as my schedule allows during the week & on the weekends.
We are both passionate about being good stewards of the land & continuing the next generation of farmers.
Water/well access, septic/sewage, electricity, on-site housing
My husband has about 3 years of farming experience overall, mostly certified & uncertified organic (hot composting) but he does have hydroponic farming experience as well. My farming experience collectively totals 2 years and is strictly organic, not certified.
We have farming experience with vegetables, berries, poultry, beans, herbs, mushrooms, flowers, & trees.
Get immersed in the commercial farming world and learn the growing challenges of our specific region. Help a fellow community member while helping ourselves gain agricultural knowledge. Sell produce at farmers markets.
Learn the ins & outs of year-round organic farming while building savings so that we can create our own operation on our own land one day to pass onto our future children. Create a space for a community garden to share what we've learned and provide a safe space for others to grown & learn
We are not picky on the exact housing type as long as we have our own space. "Enough is abundance to the wise".
A 1bedroom/1 bathroom tiny house would be enough!
As POC we understand what it's like to be judged unfairly so we absolutely make it a point to never do so ourselves. We treat everyone with the respect & understanding we hope to receive!
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
