Seeking Purchase or Lease: any amount of acres in Yamhill County


Land Seeker Description

I will be graduating from George Fox in one year and I hope to begin a career in sustainable development. I am looking for a space to possibly begin a business that integrates alternative counseling, sustainability, and community development. I would also love to learn the basics of farming and how to properly manage land. I would like to stay in the Northern Yamhill County area and am interested in potential partnerships to develop farm land.

What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, electricity, potential barns/structures, residential well/water access

Describe your farming experience

I have worked for the George Fox Ground Department for several years, leaning how to operate equipment, manage land, install irrigation, install different landscaping features, and tend to different species of plants. I have also worked as a chef for many years, so I am familiar with cleaning food and emphasizing a true farm-to-table mentality. I grew up around farming and gardening and have taken an interest to the farming lifestyle. I am comfortable around animals and would love to learn the basics of properly tending to livestock. I am eager to learn the fundamentals of operating a farm.

Are you currently farming?

Describe your housing needs

I will be transiting out of campus housing in April and will need to find temporary housing for about half a year or so, but I am hoping to build a mobile tiny house that will park wherever I intend to live. This build will take about 4 or 5 months, but after that, I will be able to park on any available land. Hopefully the tiny house will be equipped with solar panels, so electricity may not be required, but water will need to be accessible.
