Seeking creative solution OR lease for cash: 2-5 Acres in Yamhill or Clackamas counties


?

Land Seeker Description

I am looking for the right kind of environment, sunny and relatively flat, on no more than 5 acres with an opportunity to utilize rainwater storage or a well–in order to grow an assortment of vegetables. I reside in Dundee so these counties are what I am looking for.


What features of the property are essential?

Pretty much will need significant water storage or an on-site well, and or other irrigation lines/structures. If we have another hot, dry Summer like we just had, then the vegetables would have no chance without consistent irrigation.


Describe your farming experience

I have been involved in CSA-participating farms for a handful of years now. I want to strive toward starting my own small operation for friends and family, and, if this situation fits, for more than just that. I have worked extensively with a specific type of Oregon tomato at Flamingo ridge and have planted and harvested just about everything else. I also do work for 47th Avenue (Luscher Farms, Lake Oswego) every Winter when tomato season dies down.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

To get the land prepped for organic veggie farming is a process that must be hammered away at systemically. If proper soil conditions and irrigation practices are in place, then obviously the process is greatly encouraged. If not, then creative solutions will need to be confected. I would seek to observe the land as it reacts to certain measures and see if the drainage is good. The process for getting started and looking forward to first harvest could take up to a year or so. But I am looking for something small-scale. I want to grow organic, nutrient-rich veggies and herbs for no more than (theoretically) 30-60 CSA members.


What are your long term goals

Long-term goals would be to expand production and provide for up to 100 members. This would require at least four acres of course.
