Land Seeker Description

Greetings … there are 3 members of our crew who are organic farmers and originally we came up to central Oregon to grow hemp with hopes to be able to grow organic fruits and vegetables down the line.  Two years ago an employer never paid us so we stopped growing hemp and went into focusing on other trades . We have been living in Powell Butte on a beautiful property that we have maintained and made many improvements to but the property sold and we need to find a new place.  Ideally we would like to find some land that we can grow organic fruits and vegetables and take care of the land and start a farm of our own . Open to options as this shift came upon us very suddenly.  We have construction experience as well and have a history of rebuilding and beautifying properties and would like to grow the highest quality food to feed the people!


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, and housing... ideally structures like a green house would be great but could build those down the line if needed


Describe your farming experience

Personally as the one filling out this form I have 5-8 years of farming experience from hay, to hemp, to vegetables . However my roommate grew up an organic farmer and had done it his whole life (46 years ) and I have worked with him for the last 12 years doing farming, construction, remodeling etc. He is one of the best organic farmers in the state of Oregon and as a team we are just looking for a spot to really root down and get to grow and start a farm of our own.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

To grow organic fruits and vegetables and regenerate the land and share the abundance with the community.


What are your long term goals

To have a functional operation that grows high quality organic food at a reasonable price.


Describe your housing needs

We would ideally need 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms that are kitty and puppy friendly


What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

Take care of and give back to the land and grow high quality food to feed people of all backgrounds.
