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


Land Seeker Description

Hello! I am looking to lease to own, lease with option to buy or 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.

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?

There needs to be enough space for animals and crops, good sun, irrigation of some sort. Fencing around the property is a ++.

A house would be ideal. I am fine with putting up my own animal pens / homes.

Describe your farming experience

I just sold my 1/4 acre in Portland where I raised chickens, ducks, goats and rabbits. I had a greenhouse and raised garden beds. I am currently staying at the beach enjoying the spring while I look for my next place.

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