Have been farming for 3+ years and hoping to start a new enterprise focused on producing and selling organic fruit. Because of the perennial nature of fruit will only consider options that include the ability to grow into long term lease if things are going well for both parties. Want a mutually beneficial relationship for farmer and land owner grounded in respect. Will care for and steward your land as well as add value to your land in the form of plants and delicious fruit.
water rights, electricity, quality relationship and communication with land owner, land that is suitable for organic certification is preferred
I have been co-managing an organic fruit orchard for 2 years on leased land
Degree in ecological horticulture
Establishing a productive organic and regenerative orchard for direct-market sales in Willamette valley/greater Portland area. Prefer to operate on lease for cash basis, long-term lease
Securing long-term housing while continuing to manage leased parcels
To contact a land seeker, you must first create a land listing and have it approved by our staff. Thank you.
