Land Seeker Description

I am a male who owns and operates a cleaning company in the Colorado front range along with cultivating a personal garden and farming poultry. We frequent the local farmers market as both buyers and sellers. I currently work a full time mechanic position as well. On my free time I often preform side jobs of landscaping, gardening, automotive repair, and metal fabrication and welding. I have a plethora of tools and a healthy supply of knowledge to be mainly self sufficient. My wife attended school in Oregon and we are looking to return. We would love an opportunity to grow our knowledge while residing in the beautiful state of Oregon.
