Seeking Lease or Partnership on 5 acres in Corbett


Land Seeker Description

Looking to help and learn in a rural setting. My husband and I grew up in the country, and we want that for our kindergarten aged daughter. He was raised on a farm in Iowa, I around horses in the Northwest. We are currently both professionals in Portland. He teaches 5th grade, and I am a patternmaker for a clothing company. We are both hard workers and lifelong learners. I keep a veggie garden at our home, but we are green when it comes to farming.

My hope is to find a place where we could rent/lease, and work on an existing farm to learn the ropes. My first choice would be the Corbett area so I could send my daughter to school there.

Thank you,
