2 Live-On Farm Hands Seeking Lease of 2 Acres (Goji Berries)


Land Seeker Description

Veteran, recently retired from military and 38 year old son ready to lease and farm land. LOOKING for 2 Acres with water and accommodations for 2. Open to lease options, labor swap and partnership.

Goal is to grow a specific berry crop.  Enthusiastic and ready to begin this journey now!  I am widowed and my son and I currently are renting in Portland.  I’m 61 and my son is 38.  We’re both hardworking, trustworthy and excited about farming.  We can relocate as early as 1 June 2023.  I am an original Oregonian, born & raised in Coos Bay. Left after high school and joined the U.S. Air Force. After 35 years of traveling the world we came back home to Oregon.

Our number one priority is to always meet or exceed the expectations of the landowner.  We offer you two strong, college educated, hardworking, trustworthy laborers and we’re committed to maintaining and improving your farm.  Both my son and I know the daily, weekly, monthly and yearly work we are facing and can’t wait to get started!

In our hearts we know with hard work and sacrifice we can maintain, improve and profit from your land and still find time to tend to farm two acres of berries.  We’ll be busy seven days a week for several years, if not decades, but what an opportunity!

Please contact me if you have any questions or are interested in leasing me your land now and working your farm.  Thank you in advance and best wishes, Jeff
