Seeking Lease or Purchase: 40+ acres around Forest Grove


?

Land Seeker Description

I’m looking to fulfill my dream of being a swineherd or heritage pigs. We are currently expanding our herd of swine and need more room for paddocks and pastures (we’re currently on dense forestland making rotational grazing difficult).

I’m looking for 40+ acres to raise swine on pasture utilizing rotational grazing.

My goal is to create a sustainable silvopasture of grasses, legumes, brassicas, nut trees and fruit trees where all feed for the swine is produced on the farm without chemical fertilizers or genetically modified organisms.

Goats and possibly cattle may be added to the rotational grazing scheme.


What features of the property are essential?

Well or water source for watering animals.


Describe your farming experience

Have been raising chickens and hogs for personal consumption for under a year. Currently expanding my herd for sale to the local population.


Are you currently farming?

Yes

What are your short term goals for the land

Create a pasture of grasses, legumes, and brassicas so that the swine will obtain most nutritional feed requirements from the land by utilizing rotational grazing.


What are your long term goals

Create a silvopasture that includes nuts and fruit trees so that all feed is produced on the farm without chemical fertilizers or genetically modified organisms. Ideally with a hazelnut orchard to finish swine on much like the bellota ham of Spain.


Describe your housing needs

None
