Seeking small acreage (2-10 acres) within 2 hours drive of Portland


Land Seeker Description

Hello! I am looking to purchase (would also consider lease to own, lease with option to buy, long-term lease) a small acreage homestead.

I will be building a homestead that will eventually be used as an educational center teaching traditional homesteading skills with a modern twist.

Ideally the land would have electricity or good southern exposure. An existing well would also be nice.

I don’t need a home onsite (wouldn’t say no to one) as I can put up a cabin.

Open to a creative partnership with existing onsite farm. For example leasing back part of property with the right to purchase if owner sells.

What features of the property are essential?

I am pretty open.

Describe your farming experience

I currently live on 1/4 acre in the city raising goats and rabbits. I have a greenhouse and raised garden beds.

Growing up I lived with my uncle who was a butcher in a small town in Central Oregon.

Are you currently farming?


What are your short term goals for the land

Set up home, garden, barn, fencing and establish myself. Go off grid as much as possible.

What are your long term goals

Educational program for kids and adults

Describe your housing needs

I will need a three bedroom. I am willing to put up either a permanent cabin (if I own or lease to own) or a temporary yurt.
