Seeking Purchase or Lease: 1+ acres in Deschutes County


Land Seeker Description



I am a former farm owner and recently sold a hobby farm in Tumalo to reorganize my finances and business plan.

I am seeking a prime location to start a farm cooperative space for homeschool students to come learn regenerative farming practices and sell their goods, as well as come learn and recreate during the day.

I have experience growing pumpkins, melons, squashes, peppers, tomatoes, leafy greens, herbs, and flowers.  I have also raised and butchered meat rabbits for years, and have experience raising goats and chickens. My goal is to promote a student owned (and partially operated) farm venture with bees’ honey, flowers, produce, and livestock as our main commodities for sale.

I am open to partnering in any capacity that fully aligns vision and intention for helping students and community members become more self sufficient.

I can start as soon as possible and already have an experienced advisor and partner who has built many successful farm communities and projects, as well as a hand full of friends and parents wanting to collaborate and build this project.

What features of the property are essential?

Greenhouse. Private well or irrigation.

Describe your farming experience

As stated above, I have owned and operated a hobby farm for five years in Tumalo.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

I would like to facilitate student production of herbs, leafy greens, squashes and melons for children to sell and promote their own businesses to the community.

What are your long term goals

Ideally I would settle into a space where I can cultivate trees, nuts, and really delve deeper into regenerative farming practices. Investing in the soil is my priority and being able to do so on land that I could eventually purchase would be ideal.

Describe your housing needs

I could live in my trailer, or not live on the property. I am flexible and open. I have one daughter who is five years old and a Newfoundland dog who is six years old.

What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

Love the golden rule.
