Land Seeker Description

Hello, thank you for taking the time to look at my profile. I believe in full transparency, building trust, loyalty, and friendships that will last a lifetime. Everything I’ve written here is 100% true and verifiable!

I am a hemp professional currently living in Douglas County. In 2018, I grew 7 acres of hemp for my company pretty much single handedly. There was some seasonal labor used, but the majority of the project was my vision, hard work, blood, sweat, and a couple of times tears haha!

I am a co-founder of Amota Group, Amota Processing, and www.hempexchange.com, the website has over $800 Million in listings on it… I just wish it had that much in sales as well!

Amota Group/Amota Processing are located in Winston, Oregon. I currently live in Glendale, Oregon but also have a rental home in Roseburg closer to the facilities.

After 3 peaceful years in Douglas County, my wife, dog, and I are ready to make a transition. We seek an area that is a little bit more populated and has opportunity for a small foods business to thrive. After pursuing my dreams for almost a decade, it is time for me to give my wife her deserved time to shine. We are thinking about a bakery/deli, a food truck, or other food related business. A farm would help provide ingredients for any of our pursuits and I have interest in a small, boutique, quality forward hemp flower grow. I know many farmers and processors in the Bend area.

My background is in commodities trading and sales. My current businesses are centered around distribution of hemp and hemp derivatives. I have over 7 years of cannabis/hemp cultivation experience. I can supplement all my claims with beautiful photos, videos, and statistics!

This year Amota Processing dried and processed over 1 million wet pounds of hemp flower at our Winston facility. We currently run a distribution operation as well as a services center at the 135,000 sq ft warehouse.

We can provide references and referrals for all facets of our life together. We hope we can be worthy candidates for anyone who is looking for a couple that is hard working, dedicated, lovers of nature, responsible, and respectful. We love to learn and gain new experiences. My father lives with me part time during the year due to complications with diabetes.

Help us make our next dreams come true, thanks for looking!
