Seeking Lease: 2-6 acres in Lane County


?

Land Seeker Description

I am a beginner farmer with a few years of experience on a flower/herb farm, fruit orchard, and hemp farm. I am seeking land to be able to farm biodiverse crops of flowers, fruit, vegetables, and bees for honey.


What features of the property are essential?

Water, sewer, electricity.


Describe your farming experience

I have worked several seasons as an employee and a volunteer on various farms which include a hemp and marijuana farm, a flower farm, and a fruit orchard. I built greenhouses, prepared soil and beds, prepared seeds, planted, and harvested. I have also worked on a “food forest” and large homestead garden in exchange for room/board.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

My short term plans are to grow and cultivate organic fruit, vegetables, flowers, and honey for sale, starting fairly small and expanding over time, in a way that is economically viable and maintains the health of the soil and ecosystem with regenerative practices.


What are your long term goals

My long term goals are the same as above, with the added potential of owning land with others. I would eventually also like to include some animal stock for land management and regenerative practices, as well as possibly creating farming and ecology workshops and educational programs much into the future.


Describe your housing needs

My housing needs are minimal as I do not need or want a lot of house space. I will ideally be able to live on the land with an already established house/room available. If housing isn’t available, I might be able to find an option for a mobile home or trailer.


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

My core values are set in kindness and honesty. I believe that with those two foundational values, we are capable of always respecting our fellows, as well as all life around us. I will always offer my kindness, honesty, and respect to the community.
