Seeking Purchase or Lease: Land fit for Lavender & Herb Farm


?

Land Seeker Description

I am seeking anywhere from 1-100 acres in a part of Oregon with ample sun to grow lavender, other herbs, and some vegetables. Main operations will be lavender, herbs, and honey. Precise location is not as important as the climate and energy of the place.


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, housing, electricity.


Describe your farming experience

My interest in farming was piqued while living with a farmer in Portland, OR. My partner started a farm 3 years ago and I observed and participated in the process. I studied soil science and crop quality at the graduate level at the University of Washington for 2 years. I worked as an intern at Herb Pharm and now am looking for a spot to start farming along with 3-12 others, depending on the scale of whatever turns out to be the optimal location.
