Land in Oregon is expensive!!  Experienced organic farmer and family, looking for partner farmer(s)/family to purchase land together.  Or sell us land!  🙂  I am working as an organic inspector and my partner is the director of our son’s daycare in Portland.  We need to be within an hours commute to Portland (but are open to a commute to Salem or Corvallis, etc. for future off-farm income)

We dream of growing OG veggies, pigs, chickens, goats, hosting pizza nights, events, farm-stays, etc.  If you are ambitious, hard-working, and have some farm experience and are interested in working out a land purchase partnership – Please message us!  We have ideas, experience, some cash, and a potential investor for the right property.
