Seeking lease-to-own or purchase 5-10 acres in Sisters

Land Seeker Description

I’m a new farmer looking for a small acreage to start an organic regenerative market garden in Sisters, Oregon. I’m interested in growing all kinds of vegetables and legumes, and I’d be very excited to have an orchard as well. I’m also open to other specialties like bees and grapes in addition to the market garden. I’d prefer to start small, and grow bigger over time so I am open to larger acreage, if available. One reason I’d prefer to start small is because my partner and I both have part-time engineering jobs (remote). We are currently “roaming” but have family in Sisters and my partner works for a Sisters-based company so we are very interested in living in the area. I’d prefer land that has been previously farmed organic but would consider land that’s been farmed conventionally. In the future, I would consider adding livestock such as cattle or goats. I have a small amount of experience volunteering (WWOOFing) on market-garden farms in France and Washington state.


What features of the property are essential?

Water and healthy soil.


Describe your farming experience

I have volunteered (WWOOFed) on a 30+ acre vineyard and a 2 acre market garden with a large acreage of pasture (sheep and goats) in Southern France. I have volunteered at a 5 acre market garden near to Bellingham, Washington.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

A small market garden and possibly some value-added products such as sauerkraut, kimchi, pickles, or other ferments.


What are your long term goals

A self-sufficient farmstead with a large market garden, and a small dairy operation.


Describe your housing needs

Flexible - I have a camper that I can use as housing, or I would be open to a permanent structure.
