Seeking Lease: 10+ acres in Jackson/Josephine County
Land Seeker Description
My partner and I are interested in leasing land to farm and homestead. We have been raising dairy cows for 100% grassfed raw milk and practicing management intensive grazing for a year now. We saw significant improvements in the land we grazed on last year within just one season and this has solidified our interest and passion for regenerative agriculture. In addition to cows we raise pastured meat chickens, have a small laying flock, and have 2 Idaho pasture pigs.
Currently we are without enough land to farm to the scale we dream about. We are on search to purchase land in the area. Until then, we would love to caretake another piece of land that will reap the benefits of great pasture management.
We both work outside jobs, but with the right opportunity we would love to expand into selling pasture raised chicken and raw milk herd shares. Thank you for your time and consideration
