I am currently living in Arizona but looking to move back to Oregon in the next two months. I have seven years of farming experience, and have Associate and Bachelor degrees in Agriculture and related fields. I am looking to set up multiple enterprises including row crops, berries, nuts, poultry, and goat-milk as well as hosting farm dinners and eventually supplying my own restaurant and events.
Barn, greenhouse/hoophouse/cold frame, pasture, woodland, workable soil with some organic matter (silt-loam, clay-loam), electricity, preferably previously organically managed
I ran a small CSA operation in Boring, OR for a few years. Also sold produce out of my yard for several years. I have research and college education experience, and worked with FoFF as a volunteer for four years (2010-2014)
Ramp up production supplying restaurants, farmers market stand. Host pop-ups in city to test drive product and my own culinary skills (I'm a classically trained chef and sommelier) and host on farm dinners
Supply 75-85% of all produce for my own purposes
I need a one to two bedroom space, house or trailer or cabin, I'm not picky. I can rent a home or apartment offsite if the housing isn't available on the *right* property.
I will carry my own insurance. I will encourage volunteerism. I will restrict entry as needed.
