Seeking lease-to-own or purchase, 5+ acres, Clackamas, Multnomah, Mt. Hood counties.


Land Seeker Description

I am purchasing 10 Paca-Vicuna’s in the next two-three months. I already have two and just bred my female. I am looking to grow my heard. I may acquire possibly 30 more Paca-Vicuna’s. My sister and her husband currently own these animals and have decided to move to Arkansas to be closer to their immediate family. I would buy their farm but I need to be close to Portland as I do travel some for my job. These animals have the finest fleece, even softer than Alpaca. The Vicuna is what gives the fiber it’s special softness.

I am looking to lease-to-own a farm now, and will be able to purchase within a years’ time. I currently own a home in Lake Oswego, and want to keep it as a rental property as it is within walking distance to downtown Lake Oswego.

I am also interested in farming the land for flowers, produce, vegetables, etc.

I would love to either be right outside of Portland, or, as close to Mt. Hood as I can get, not so much in between unless I fall in love with the property.

What features of the property are essential?

water rights, on-site sewer, on-site private well, irrigation structures, barns/structures, pasture, woodland, soil type, electricity, land that has been certified organic

Describe your farming experience

I have spent several years out at my sisters Paca-Vicuna farm and have been involved in the daily care of the animals as well as the annual shirring process. I purchased my female 4 years ago and have one cria male from her and are in the process of breeding her again.
My daughter will also be helping me and she is currently a caretaker of a farm in Idaho.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Grow my herd of Paca-Vicnua's.

Grow vegetables, flowers

Raise chickens, goats and open to other farm animals.

What are your long term goals

Long-term is to turn it into a profitable business and eventually turn it over to my daughter in 10 -15 years.

Describe your housing needs

I am looking for a 3 bedroom, 2 bath.

I love old houses, mine was built in 1942, but am open to different options. Would love to not have someone living right next to me.
