Seeking Small Farm (2 Acres+) in Washington County


Land Seeker Description

I’m a small scale flower grower (specializing in flowers that dry well) with a small herd of milking goats who runs a handcrafted artisan business focusing on thoughtful eco-friendly giving for all of life’s seasons. Seeking a barn in good repair, hay storage space, pasture, history of land use. Require workshop/flower drying/packing space, room for a greenhouse. Focusing on perennial flowers and herbs, with space desired for annuals, would love 2 acres+ to grow on. In my wildest dreams would LOVE a place to gather.. a mini event center or old barn as venue. If you have land and a home that you’d love to see passed down to someone who would care for it as lovingly as you have, and see it utilized for community, we would love to meet with you to speak about purchasing.

What features of the property are essential?

understanding property history and soil quality
zoning acceptable for our operation
accessibility to water

Describe your farming experience

Our own home garden is bursting at the seams. I worked as a farm crew member at a certified organic farm for several years before renting a plot on the farm to grow my own flower crop and increase my growing space. This is the third year of having my own space to grow at the farm, but we are looking to move closer to family in the PNW. Interested in small scale farming, regenerative growing, building community.

What are your short term goals for the land

Plant perennials, get infrastructure in order to ensure harvest and drying of flowers and smooth transition from the land I'm currently growing on. Grow our goat herd! Apply for USDA grant to grow my business (working with consultant now to prepare).

What are your long term goals

Become an epicenter for small scale regenerative farming/sustainable living. A place for education and a community hub.

Describe your housing needs

Small home and place for a tiny house or ADU.

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

I would participate in Oregon’s Farm and Ranch Equity & Anti-Racism Program (O-FREAP).
