Seeking Rent to own.


Land Seeker Description

I am interested in moving back to Oregon after having lived in Montana for 7 years. Over that time period I have practiced raising goats, chickens, turkeys; keeping bees and a small garden for personal use. My main interest is in dairy goats, but using permaculture techniques to create a holistic agricultural system that the excess products can be sold from. I have a degree in sustainable design and am looking for under utilized land to start a small farm.

What features of the property are essential?

Minimal, water available, access.

Describe your farming experience

I have experience working on a 30 acre farm just outside of Forest Grove, Oregon. Have a degree in sustainable design with a focus on natural building and sustainable agriculture.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Short term plans would to create a small scale production operation to start the farm itself. Once it is established then expand to provide more products ie, honey, dairy products.

What are your long term goals

Ultimately am interested in starting a goat dairy/creamery operation.

Describe your housing needs

Depending on the location I could either update housing, create a small living quarters, or rent. Flexible.

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

I hope to create an example of what can be done on a small scale to take care of the land and support the local community.
