Seeking lease/lease to own/other arrangements for a smaller hobby farm near Portland


Land Seeker Description

Hi! We are a small family of 5, my spouse and myself, and 3 wonderful kids. We are looking for a more rural home to lease/lease to own/help care for as we are moving to Portland area from Montana. Currently, we maintain 3 acres of land and are very comfortable with that. We have interests in getting goats/chickens or caring for them. We are also open to other types of animals if owners need support, definitely a family of animal lovers here! We are interested in gardening as well, and look to have a garden where we can sustain ourselves but also give back to the community. We are making the move this summer, dates are flexible as well. We are open to both commercial farming and smaller scale farming. Looking forward to connecting!

What features of the property are essential?

Pasture, would like at least a barn (or even a small structure). Looking for an on site home that has electricity, running water (can be well or city, we currently use well), and soil that has not been treated with chemicals.

Describe your farming experience

We have farming experience from our childhood, raising goats, cows, horses, and chickens. Currently we maintain 3 acres of land, and we do seasonal gardening.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Short term goals would be to raise some animals, and grow crops. We are hoping to have goats for milking, and making products or using the milk for our own family. We hope to grow enough vegetables and get enough animal products to give back to the community and participate in farmers markets as well.

What are your long term goals

Long term goal would be to eventually own the farm, and continue to add to our farm. We hope to have animals who need a home, and to provide a rescue for them. We hope to sustainably provide for our own family, and become a staple in the community where we can help others who are in need with products.

Describe your housing needs

We are looking for a property with available farmer housing 3 bedrooms or larger.
